At our local farmer's market a few weeks back our favorite farmer had boar sausage and ground boar for sale. He has a fantastic farm that we've visited with lots of produce but then tons of livestock as well - chickens, ducks, turkeys, boars, pigs, cows, you name it.
We decided to try the Mild Italian Boar Sausage Patties. I decided to make it how I've made one of our favorite dishes featured on this blog before from a Whole Foods Recipe.
This time I tweaked it a bit with the boar sausage and put the whole thing on a bed of fresh spinach leaves, also from the farmer's market.
I will say the boar is probably one of the most fantastic things I've ever eaten. It was incredibly lean, flavorful and tender. Since then, we've bought more of the sausage pretty much every week to stock in our freezer to have throughout the winter time.
If you can find a local farmer with boar, do try it! You won't regret it. And if not, still do make this dish and use a good Italian Sausage, you won't regret it!
