Homemade Chicken & Bacon Sausages

"This was my first attempt at making home-made sausages using a sausage maker and a synthetic casing. A slight problem was the nozzle was too large for the casing so I proceeded without a casing and thought these were the best sausages I've ever tasted, even if I do say so myself."

Questions & Replies

  1. Your recipe sounds great, and I'm eager to try it, but I'm unclear whether the bacon should be cooked or raw when being added to the chicken


  1. These were very flavorful and simple to make. I don't have a meat grinder so I put it all in the food processor. I shaped it into patties. We will be having these often. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
  2. I tried with about 1/2 tsp. of fennel and it worked out great! I had with eggs and toast for breakfast. I froze some for another time, and can't wait to have them again. EXCELLENT recipe! Linda
  3. these saussies were not too bad. I ground my own pork and chicken and doubled on the spices... my youngest still said there was a "bite" missing to the ingrediant.. and I loaded this with fresh ground garlic as well.. hmmm... otherwise a rock recipe with a few tune ups.. thanks for sharing
  4. These were fabulous!!! As I dont have a sausage maker attachment I just chucked everything into the food processor till well combined and instead of using grated parmesan I cut mine into tiny chunks and mixed through....this way every other bite or so you bite into a nice little cheesy bit. I simply rolled into logs, then grilled. As far as sausages go this is really quite healthy! Thanks for sharing...this will be a regular at our BBQ's. Ooh...my eldest daugter recommends ceasar dressing if a sauce is required.


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=http://www.satsleuth.com/VisitorMap/stats.php?id=vUa1ya8Z> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/VisitorMap/globes/Globe_vUa1ya8Z.gif alt= /></a></p>
