Boerewors Sausage Patty Sandwich

Boerewors Sausage Patty Sandwich

Homemade breakfast Boerewors sausage patties are easy to make. In South Africa, Boerewors are traditionally cooked over coals as part of a barbecue, or fried in a pan on the stove inside casings to make link sausages. Today we are making Boerewors sausage patties instead of links.

It is essential to know the difference between minced meat and ground meat when making South African Boerewors. Boerewors uses minced meat and not ground meat. Minced meat is meat that is chopped up very finely; ground meat is more pulverized since it is put through a meat grinder possibly with other fillers such as fat, soybeans and water to bulk the ground meat up.

The word Boerewors is literally translated to farmer’s sausage in the Dutch Afrikaans language and is a traditional South African sausage. The spice coriander and cloves define Boerewors taste. Serve in between two slices of bread, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese and eggs for the ultimate Boerewors breakfast sandwich.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My mother is a historian of African culture and history and her influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
