Fennel and Pork Sausage with Grape Relish

Ingredients
1
slightly beaten egg
1
tablespoon bourbon (optional)
1/2
cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1
tablespoon fennel seed, crushed
1
large clove garlic, minced
1
teaspoon paprika
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper
1
pound lean ground pork
1 1/2
cups red seedless grapes, halved
1
small fennel bulb, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1
tablespoon margarine or butter
2
tablespoons balsamic vinegar
 
Salt and pepper
1/4
cup snipped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine the egg and, if desired, bourbon. Stir in rolled oats, fennel seed, garlic, lemon peel, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add ground pork. Mix well. Shape the pork mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Set aside.
  2. Fold a 36x18-inch piece of heavy foil in half to make a double thickness of foil that measures 18x18 inches. Place the grapes, chopped fennel, margarine, and vinegar in the center of the foil. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper. Bring up 2 opposite edges of foil and seal with a double fold. Fold remaining edges to completely enclose the grape mixture, leaving space for steam to build.
  3. Grill the pork patties and the grape mixture on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 16 minutes or until no pink remains in the patties, turning once. To serve, spoon grape mixture over the grilled patties. Sprinkle with the fresh parsley. Makes 4 servings.
