Here is cooking
Here is some of the final
Looks better than anything I have bought in the supermarket, great job and glad you are loving the new toy
Gawd don't you just love new toys?
Nice Machine Congrats on the upgrade
Great job well done! Nothing is more satisfying than making it yourself and seeing what a difference there is from your own and processed sausages; so much leaner, fresher flavor and the satisfaction of just plain creating it!
Man that sausage looks great and for your first time. I know it's not that hard to put meat into a grinder but it sounded good. I do like that grinder and can my wife ask your wife where she got it from? I'm hoping for one like that in my birthday bag of goodies. Wednesday
And now you are really hooked. enjoy the new obsession!
From the looks of it you realy nailed the fat to pork ratio...nice work !
Next will be a meat mixer, then a stuffer.......... It just keeps growing.
What seasonings did you use? That looks wonderful.
I used Thyme, sage, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, chipotle, and parsley in roughly the following amounts:
8 lbs of pork
~ 7 tsp of salt
~2 tsp of CBP
1 1/2 tsp ground Thyme
3 tsp ground sage
2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp chipotle
a palm full of parsley
One of the first things I noticed in a side by side of some store bought sausage was that this was really lean. The store bought stuff didn't have close to the flavor, and the salt of the store bought was out of control.
Mrs. Engineer (who could easily be a vegetarian) is always suspicious of sausages, but this is different. We know what went into it, and the taste was phenomenal.
Very nice, man i want a grinder bad now looks good!!!
Looks great Dana, well done. Nothing like fresh breakfast sausage, sooo much better than store bought. Now you need to get a stuffer, if you don't already have one. Just think about all those sausages waiting to be made.
Ok then this thread has settled it. I want a grinder. LOL
I haven't made any in years, I had a Hobart mixer / grinder at the restaurant and then I have a hand cranker (just looked in the garage and didn't find it) but you can't beat homemade.
Yours look great. On to bigger and better!!
Yeah buddy!! Breakfast sausage was my first grind too. Gotta love it.. Now if I can get the wife to buy me a meat mixer
Nice job.Looks good!!!
Way to go, that is some good looking sausage, that grinder will make sausage making a snap...
Dana, that was just fantastic. Beautifuul shot of the meat coming out. Wow, you are good to go! Now you need a stuffer to really make some beauties
