    Hi. New to sausage making... Infact
    .. not made them yet! Does anyone have a good basic recipe for a low fat lean sausage ratio? Due to dietary requirements I can't digest too much fat lest I suffer for it... any thoughts? I have natural casings and cellulose casings if that's any help.... thanks in advance folks!

    Hi. I did the search and it came back with a LOT of threads so thought I would narrow it down. Lol. This recipe looks fantastic thanks so much!

    Tasty low fat sausage is definitely possible. I am fairly new to sausage making but I have found you can take any sausage recipe and make it leaner by changing the protein.  As mentioned above, I have had great luck with boneless skinless chicken thighs...comes in at about 8 grams of fat per 3-4oz link.  If you are looking for about 10-12 grams of a fat,  you can use half pork loin, half pork butt.  The key I have found is just to make sure you do not overcook them!  I also like to add a half a cup of non fat dry milk to each 5 pound batch.  I learned that from the chicken sausage recipe shared above which I highly recommend.  Richie has a got a winner in that recipe!
