It's imperative to let the flavors meld for a minimum of 12 hours
prior to cooking
this wonderful moose sausage...

Yield: Four 2-1/2 lb. portions (total of 2 lbs.)
Prep: 20 Mins.
Cook Patties: 3-4 Mins per side (7-8 Mins total)
Meld Flavors: 12 hours

2 pounds lean ground moose (venison or other meats and poultry work well too)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fine-ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground fennel seed
--(crush whole seeds in a mortar and pestle or spice grinder)
¼ teaspoon brown sugar
⅛ teaspoon dried oregano
⅛ teaspoon dried thyme
Place ground moose and red wine vinegar in the bowl of a food processor, sprinkle with parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, salt, black pepper, paprika, red pepper flakes, fennel seed, brown sugar, oregano, and thyme. Gently pulse until flecks of spice are evenly distributed throughout meat (scraping down sides as needed).
Form mixture into four 3-inch squares (1/2 lb. ea.), double-wrap each in plastic wrap, label, and date. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before cooking, or freeze* directly.
To cook thawed sausage, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Form mixture into 3" patties that are 1/2" thick.  Working in batches, cook sausage patties in the hot skillet until no longer pink in the center, about 3-4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160F.
*You can freeze the sausage if desired - when ready to use, pull out of freezer and thaw in refrigerator overnight then continue to prepare as stated above.
