I've been trying make my own sausage patty recipe for some time now. But recently, after eating a Sausage McMuffin, I wondered if Mcdonald's uses brined pork sausage for their sausage patties.
After all -- I think sausages are really brined, originally?
So the question is. Is the pork in sausage patties brined and/or cured? If so, does the brining occure before grinding the meat or after?
