Cajun Habanero Sausage

Recipe by Pokey in San Antonio

Tired of sausage that claims to be hot but isn't? Try this recipe. You'll need a grinder with sausage stuffing horn if you want links. Otherwise, use a food processor, and make into patties to pan fry and freeze the rest.

Really nice flavor and definitely retains the spicy habanero flavor. I used "pork shoulder" (??) and trimmed it from the bone as it was all I could find. It was the first time trying to grind meat in my food processor and it went smoothly (did it in two batches). Needed to add salt to the patty after it was cooked, but very good overall.
