This is a great recipe. I used whole pepper corns and added fresh garlic. Froze two of them for later.

My husband and I just loved this! I wrapped the sausages in foil while they were being refrigerated, and before baking, i poked holes all over so that the oil could drip out. I then placed them on a 12-muffin pan so that they wouldn't sit in the oil. The taste was absolutely fabulous!! I will never spend a fortune to buy summer sausages again!! Note: I wanted to give some of these to my sister, who is pregnant and doesn't want to consume store bought sausages, which contain nitrates and nitrites, both of which are present in quick salt. So I just used kosher salt, and it turned out great! Thanks so much for posting!!
