Looks great! How's it taste or are you waiting for it to meld and then cook in the morning?

OMG!! That looks fantastic! I am so jealous of how easy you make the stuffing the casings look! Still working on that skill. Wish I were home right now so I could cook up some sausage with FRESH EGGS...maybe not, the weather is much nicer here in San Antonio than SE Ontario...

*blinkblinks* YOU had help!!!! There was mixing! And feeding the stuffer. And growing/drying the herbs! And the charming conversation!

I need another sausage biscuit. Okay...if you make sausage gravy and biscuits again, we will say it was all you.

He has linking the sausage down to an art-form. I cannot do it, but he does this spin-thing and can work through a length in no time at all. CWS, your sausage turned out awesome as well!

PF, it turned out really well. A good balance of herbs and spices. It will be a versatile sausage whether just for breakfast or added in something else like Stuffed Cabbage. (Hoping that hint takes.)

Looks great Frank. You have our address and know how to pack with dry ice I assume. ;)

So the sausage was pretty good. Juicy and not greasy. Little spicy and nice hint of thyme.

The casings aren't as easy as they look.. those sheep casings are hard to get open. Water is your friend.

There is 26 packs of 8 in the freezer, plus 10 chubs (half pound each).

II also have some odd sized ones in the fridge and we had some this morning for sausage gravy.

breakfast, recipe, sausage

TNT Breakfast Sausage Recipe I decided to follow the recipe that came with the meat grinder. The only thing I changed is I added 1-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and I used all pork. I just taste-tested a patty (I am chilling the meat before running the rest of it through the medium blade), and it gets a thumb's up. I haven't decided if I will make this into patties or if I will do links. The casings are ready--I have 4 other types of sausage ready to grind as well.
