anyone have any recipes for good fresh breakfast sausage seasoning?
also interested in making some summer sausage if anyone has something for that as well.
Here's one that came up ...
8 lbs venison
2 lbs pork fat
5 tbsp salt
1 tbsp white pepper
2 tbsp sage
1 tbsp garlic
1 tsp ginger
1 tbsp mace or nutmeg
1 tbsp ground thyme
Mix all the spices in 1-2 cups of cold water. Put the meat/fat through the course grind once, add the spice mix and mix the meat well, then send the meat through the course grind again.
This sausage can also be used for Italian dishes - just add bread crumbs and egg for meatballs. Mix this sausage 50/50 with any unseasoned ground meat, add egg, bread crumbs, and tomato sauce or enchilada sauce and it makes a good meatloaf.
The link is to a fantastic chorizo recipe that midwest recently linked. I've made it twice now and it's amazing. I don't do the steps, just add all the ingredients together with the red wine vinegar and tequila, send the meat through the course grind, add the spices, and then send it through the course grind again. I use 1/2 Ancho and 1/2 Pasilla for the peppers besides the Cayenne and Chipotle. All the ingredients can be found on Amazon including the Achiote paste and ground Mexican Oregano which are essential ingredients. I also add 1 tbsp of Paprika per 5 lbs of the recipe which I think makes it a little better. I also don't stuff it into sausage links - not necessary.
For all my sausage, I just roll it into 1-2 lb balls and drop it into a vacuum seal bag then vacuum seal the balll then flatten it out by hand once sealed so that the thin bricks of meat stack nicely and thaw quickly.

Country Style in a small sheep casing (22mm) with high temp cheddar & pepper jack cheese. Throw it in the smoker. Your friends will think your a sausage god! Awesome with eggs & pancakes.
I've used most of their seasonings over the years & have yet to be disappointed.
