Homemade Pork Sausage

Submitted by: SINDLICIOUS

Introduction

I make my own sausages out of necessity because I can't buy "American" or "Italian" style sausages in Sweden. This recipe can be used for any recipe that calls for pork sausage. It takes only a few minutes to prepare. It's better than packaged sausage (in my humble opinion) and definitely better for you since you control what's in your sausage!

Ingredients

    500 Grams (1 pound) Lean Ground Pork 7-10% Fat
    1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder (2 if you like garlic)
    2 Tablespoons Fennel Seeds
    1 Tablespoon Sage (fresh or dry)
    1 Tablespoon Pepper
    1 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (1TBL if you like it HOT!)
    1 Teaspoon Salt (or less if desired)

Directions

You might want to let the pork sit on the counter for about 15 minutes before you start blending it - otherwise your hands will be ice cold when your finished!

In a mixing bowl, blend the ground pork and all the herbs and spices thoroughly.

Brown, on a medium high heat, until cooked through.

Add to your casserole, spaghetti sauce, dressing, or where ever you need sausage in a recipe.

You can also use ground chicken, turkey, beef or lamb. It's a healthier option to packaged sausage and you control the ingredients!

I'm pretty sure the calorie and fat content listed in the nutritional info is higher than it in reality is if your using a lean ground pork. But there's no Lean Ground Pork listed in the "find a food" area of the data base. So you can feel better that you're actually eating less fat and calories if you're using the leanest ground pork you can find!

500 grams makes five 100 gram portions.
