These could use more pepper, the flavor was bland for our taste. A good basic sausage, tweak it to suit your own tastes. We use 3 parts of pork cushion meat to one part pork fat, which is an excellent ratio, and grind them several times for a uniform texture.<br/>September 21, 2013: Had some from the freezer for breakfast today, found them to be much more flavorful after "aging", so came back to add a star to my rating. Will make this gain (but with some more pepper for me).
Loved this sausage. Will definitely do it again. We didn't find this too spicy at all. I may add some savory next time for the extra peppery flavor we love. First class recipe. Thanks.
I made these for "breakfast for dinner" tonight, and served them with pancakes and eggs. They were really delicious - the flavor was spot on. The only thing we didn't love was the texture; they were a little dense. I'm thinking it's probably because the meat I ground was pork loin and it was pretty lean. I didn't have any extra fat to add to it, but next time I'm going to try to get some at the grocery store and add it in. They will probably be a little more tender with that extra bit of fat.
Thanks for a great recipe!
Wondefrul flavor!! I love these sausages. I cooked them,,,put on a toasted english muffin w/ a slice of cheese and froze them wrapped in plastic wrap. Perfect for a quick breakfast on the go. The taste was awesome. My only question is, I fried on stovetop but my pan got filled w/ black. I don't know if I cooked right or not. Any suggestions on cooking them without so much scrubbing at end? I want to make alot of these. Thanks for the great recipe.
Great flavor. i made these last week and i'm making them again tonight. i mixed ground pork and turkey together to reduce some of the fat. i think this time i might leave out the pinch of clove all together (personal preference). So super yummy. Thanks for the recipe!
These are delicious! I used 1 tbsp honey instead of the sugar. Also I chose not to roll the mixture but placed a freezer box on the scales and forked in mounds, 45 grams (13/4 oz) each for 20 patties. Before cooking, I shaped the thawed mounds with the aid of a 3" egg ring.
Yum! I made these with ground turkey and they came out very good. I cooked them then froze them, and reheated for about a minute and a half in the microwave. Very, very tasty. Thanks!
These are easy and really good. I followed the recipe as stated, but made BIG patties - about 12. I saved some patties in the refrigerator for dinner the next day and froze the rest. I haven't tried the frozen ones yet, but can't think of any reason why they wouldn't be just as good. Thanks again Kitten for another keeper.
