20170128_080323-1600x1200We made a trip up to Behrmann’s yesterday because that was the closest place that I was sure carried the sausage casings I needed for my last batch of sausage.

Homemade Garlic Sausage Ingredients:

  • 5-lbs ground pork
  • 8-tsp minced garlic, about 10 cloves
  • 5-tbsp fresh coarsely ground black pepper
  • 3-tsp red pepper flakes
  • 5-tsp salt
  • 5-tbsp paprika
  • ½-cup chopped fresh chives green onion tops
  • 1-cup red wine

Once the pork shoulder was boned and ground with some extra beef fat I saved from trimming several rib steaks I had enough to double that recipe.  I left out the paprika and used the green tops from a couple bunches of spring onions to sub for the chives.  I wanted the garlic to really shout its presence so there are about 25 cloves in there plus a generous sprinkle of granulated garlic.20170128_082707-1600x1200Most of the batch was vac sealed and stowed in the big freezer.  I saved some out to grill but haven’t cooked any of the links.20170126_125220-1600x1200I did try out a patty or two.  A nice sausage egg biscuit!  Breakfast pr0n!  LOL
