I made half a recipe but formed it into two eight inch logs. I may slightly crush the peppercorns so that you get a spicy flavor more often. Definitely chill before serving. It was much better. Very good with crackers and cheese.
this was very good. my family really liked it.
I made this recipe exactly as written except I halved the recipe using the Zaar Servings Changer. I wish now that I had not! This was FANTASTIC! I am sure that I could have made the entire recipe and simply frozen half of it before cooking the sausage. The flavor in this recipe is incredible and was fantastic down home comfort food. I am going to make another batch of this and save some for stuffed mushrooms - add a little cream cheese, a little scallion. YUM!!! I can think of so many things that I can do with the recipe, like shaping single serve links and serving on a bun. This would also be perfect for cooking over a charcoal grill. Very d'lish and extremely versatile. Thank you for this awesome recipe! UPDATE: 05/18/08. I made another batch of this for a BBQ and shaped it into single sausage links. I cooked them on the grill and everyone just loved them and commented on the great flavor and the fact they had never had a sausage without the casing and preferred it that way. Home run!
