I really liked this...so much so that I'll never buy ground sausage from the store again. I'll just buy bulk ground pork from the local hog farmer and make my own. It was, however, a little too spicy for my wife, so I've compromised and now use only one teaspoon of pepper. Still better than store-bought, but I personally prefer the extra 'bite' of the original. I do make the occasional 'spicy' batch just for me.
Excellent recipe, thanks very much. We all loved this and my family agreed that the store bought sausage is officially "history"! I substituted grass fed Scotch Highland beef from a local farm and it was terrific. I think I might up the maple syrup next time but that would be about the only change I would make to it...being from VT we are kind of partial to a slightly more maple taste. Thank you again.
Made this and OMG, it is good! I will take the advise of other reviewers and cut back ALOT on the pepper. Thanks so much!!
