    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix all the ingredients thoroughly except casings.
    2. 2
      Then allow mixture to set covered in refrigerator at least 1/2 hours You want your mixture to be nice and cold when you put it into the casings.
    3. 3
      It is actually best left overnight if possible.
    4. 4
      This will also help blend all the flavors of the spices nicely.
    5. 5
      When cold enough fill your casings turning every 10" to make a small sausage.
    6. 6
      Or you can lay the meat on a wax paper take another wax paper, lay it on top.
    7. 7
      Roll out the meat, with your biscuit cutter, dip in water, and cut rounds.
    8. 8
      These you can nicely put in plastic freeze in baggies and they will be ready when you are.
    9. 9
      When you want to make them, put a little olive oil in the pan to prevent sticking, heat, and make the patties or sausages.
    10. 10
      These sausages are also great on the grill or for any Italian meals-- They are not over powering in flavor.

      Great sausages, strong with fennel and black pepper, just like we had them in Sicily. I did use more salt, 1 1/2 ts per pound.

      Someday I hope to be brave enough to try this recipe (Where does one get "casings"??)... I always am worried about what ACTUALLY goes into premade sausages (quality of meat etc.) and think it's awesome that you make your own! Kudos to you glitter!
