Default Homemade Breakfast Sausage 2

This is the recipe I use. I stuff mine in casings, but you certainly don't have to do that. Note: this recipe is based on 5 lbs of Boston butt. You'd have to scale things back or up depending on how much ground pork you use. I buy whole Boston butts and do the whole cubing/grinding thing.


• 5 lbs of boneless pork butt

• 2 T non-iodized salt

• 2 t fine ground black pepper

• 2 t crushed red pepper flakes

• 1 t fresh ground nutmeg

• 1 t ground dried thyme

• 1/2 t ground ginger

• 2 T sugar (Optional – I don’t use it)

• 2 t paprika

• 1 cup ice water


1. Trim the pork, cut it into 1 inch cubes, and grind it through the fine
plate of your meat grinder.
2. Combine the spices in a container and mix with the 1 cup of ice water.
3. Pour the spice and water combination into the ground pork and mix
thoroughly for at least 2 minutes. Use your hands for mixing to assure
even distribution.
4. Once the sausage is fully mixed, stuff it into 24-26 mm natural sheep
casings.



And this is what I stuff it with:

Kevin,

The looks very appetizing and impressive. Quiet a big portion. Can you freeze it?

I usually put about four links in a bag, vacuum seal it with my Food Saver, and then freeze.

That looks very good. Makes me want to go out and get a stuffer.


I think I will try your recipe next weekend.

thanks,

Kevin, the sausages look delicious! Thanks for sharing. (I like your kitchen too. I bet they don't find you wandering about the streets at night!)

Kevin,

Just looked this over again. Interesting there is no sage in the recipe. Although I've never made sausage, had the impression sage is a usual ingredient.

Thanks, Sharon. The house was built in '76. The kitchen has been through a couple of iterations since 2005 when I bought this place. I think we have finally hit on one that we'll keep.

Wally, I suppose you could put sage in it if you like, but when I stumbled upon the recipe and it didn't have sage, I figured I would like it. I'm not a big fan of sage.
