Is It A Sausage Patty Or A Burger?

Just watched Ming Tsai make a free form sausage patty using chicken, mushrooms, rice and seasonings. He mixed all the ingredients in a bowl, formed two patties and cooked them in a CI skillet.

The show was about sausages so that's what he called them.

What I want to know is, why aren't they chicken-mushroom burgers?

Could be either, I suppose you could call it sausage if it had a higher fat content... like over 20%?

Because they aren't made from hamburger?
I think hamburger was shortened up to burger, people realizing it was made from ground beef. But burger loosely became anything formed like a hamburger as more exotic burgers were made; lamb, chicken, soy even though they are technically all patties.
So really I have no idea

Exactly, Fred. A burger doesn't have to be beef anymore. We have turkey burgers, chicken burgers, lamb, pork and veggie burgers. So why are those things sausage patties and not chicken mushroom burgers.

I don't see anything that makes them sausage, and everything that makes them a burger.

I agree. So if you buy a log of breakfast sausage and slice off a hunk and cook it, is it a burger or a sausage patty?

It's a sausage patty because it started out as sausage.
