    Me and some family got together and made about 250 LBS of pork sausage today.
    Breakfast and a few varieties of Italian. Great time but I am whipped, lot of work.

    Nice! Always kind of wished there was a cooking section on NES. Could possibly tie in with the prepper angle so its not too out of left field for a gun forum. Canning, recipes, meat processing, etc.

    Recipe?

    What do you use for casing?

    I make a really good breakfast sausage (IMHO) which is good as a patty or "crumbles." I even FDed it and put it into my breakfast meals for backpacking or long term storage!

    We use natural casing. Still working on tweaking the recipes. One of our uncles used to own a little corner store and made breakfast sausage and it was to die for. Unfortunately he passed and we are trying to duplicate what he made. A lot of people have the ingredient list but not the quantities. sage, white pepper, majoram salt and black pepper

    This is what I do for breakfast sausage

    Ingredients

    * 3 tsp sage
    * 1 tsp thyme
    * 2 tsp black pepper
    * 3 tsp sea salt
    * 3 tsp parsley
    * 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    * 1/2 tsp nutmeg
    * 2.5 lbs ground pork

    Directions

    Mix all dry ingredients and then mix well with the ground pork. Refrigerate for 3-24 hours for flavors to blend.

    Use more red pepper flakes for spicier version or possibly use cayenne or dried, crushed chilis.

    Took me a minute to figure out that means "Freeze-Dried", I first thought it may have been a case of too much information. [laugh]

    The only pic I could find, I know someone took more.
    This is the 4 hrs of cutting and trimming. The worst part of the process. The supplier ordered us bone in instead of boneless and it adds a lot of time to the cubing process. Started this piece of it at 8:30 and finished at 12:30. grinding and stuffing also took a long time. We finished cleaning up at about 6:30PM
    We were fortunate to have my brothers deli as he has lots of refrigerator room, lots of buckets and pans and lots of good knives.

    I guess NES is a slice of average America. Always one guy wanting pix of the sausage party.
