venison breakfast sausage
« on: September 21, 2011, 02:48:23 PM »
I am going to dive in and try to make my own breakfast sausage this year.  Can anyone send me a good recipe?  I am not even sure what percentage of fat to use.  I know on my burger I am going to shoot between 10-15 percent.  Is making the sausage the same plus the spices?  Oh yeah, you all would be proud..I process my own deer this and I am very excited! :IBCOOL:

Links or "Jimmy dean style?"
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

I used the Hi-Country seasoning and followed the simple directions.  It was really easy and makes ~30lbs for ~$7.00.  Cheap.

x2 here.  For the fat content I mix in a 3lb package of the "ends and pieces" bacon that you can buy for around 3.99.  I use one pack of that for every 10-12lbs of lean deer meat.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.

I make a jimmy dean style as follows (sort of)
2lbs ground venison
1lb hot italian sausage
1/2-3/4 lb bacon (good bacon, or ends etc)
I use my own spices, cummin, sage, thyme, paprika, pepper, garlic (whatever you like, smoked paprika is good also),
Freeze the bacon and then grind it up, i use a small food proccesor type choppy thingy, holds like 2 cups or less.
Get a big bowl and put the venison, italian sausage, ground up bacon and the spices/seasonings you are using all together and dive in with both hands to mix it up real well (you could get all fancy buy a hand crank meat mixer).
I then cover with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for 1-2 days, seperate out into 1lb blocks and put in sealameal type bags, suck and freeze.
For LB she uses just regular italian sauage in hers as she does not like spicey/hot, she then can use hers for stuff like meatloaf or stuffed peppers etc.
I put hot pepper flakes in mine for even more kick over the hot italian sausage.
I just make little silver dollar patties when ready to use, fryem up yum yum.
I usually fry one up right after i make it to see if it needs more spice etc...

I just checked and they have a mix for geese.  Has anyone tried it?  I usually just make jerkey from my geese but since i have a new meat grinder, I may have to give it a shot.

We used to make a lot of different kinds of sausage from geese.  Mix in at least 50% pork butts or other fatty pork cuts.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....

We have noticed that you really gotta kick it up with your own seasonings to get it spicy. Well worth it but it can be alot of work.

I ended up using the hi country pack this weekend and it tasted great.  Thanks for all of your tips!
