Preheat the oven to its lowest setting. Heat a griddle pan [2] over medium-high heat.

In a large bowl [3], mix the pork, wine, fennel seeds, garlic, onion, sage, 1 teaspoon of the pepper, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the EVOO [1]. Form the pork mixture into 8 small, thin patties. Place the patties on the griddle pan [2] and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet [4] to keep warm in the oven.

To a food processor, add the almonds and pulse to coarsely grind. Transfer to a shallow dish.

In a bowl [3], whisk [5] the eggs, half & half, extracts, a little nutmeg, the Parm, and the remaining 1 teaspoon pepper and ½ teaspoon salt. Coat the bread slices in egg batter, then coat in the ground almonds.

Heat a large nonstick skillet [2] over medium heat and coat with some melted butter. Add the soaked bread and cook until golden and cooked through. Add more butter to the pan as needed.

Toss the berries together in a medium bowl [3] with a splash of amaretto.

Serve the Parmesan French toast with the sausage patties. Drizzle with warm honey and garnish with a few of the amaretto berries.
