4 ounces of the seasoned sausage meat without the casing.
1 large egg yolk.
2 tablespoons of plain dried bread crumbs.
Freshly ground black pepper.
Fresh or dried herbs of your choice.
Lettuce leaves and lemon wedges, for plate presentation.
3 or 4 tablespooons of vegetable oil.
Combine the oysters and sausage in a mixing bowl, then add the egg yolk and bread crumbs. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and mix well. Form the sausage into small patties.
Line a plate with a few layers of paper towels, and place lettuce leaves on individual plates for serving.
Now get a skillet and add enough oil to coat the inside of a medium skillet, and place the skillet over medium heat. Cook each side of the sausage patties for 2 minutes per side or until they are browned and cooked through. Drain the sausage on the plate lined in paper towels, then place the sausages atop the beds of lettuce on the plates. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
