I just whipped up a 5 pound batch and gave it the fry test...WOW....even the wife liked it...never took any pics as I dropped my digital camera and am in search of a new one. Anyway,here is the recipe if anyone wants to give er a go... 3 lbs lean ground..moose, elk, deer etc.. 2 lbs Bulk bacon end trimmings, 5 pound box from the grocery store 1 TB salt 1 TB sage 1.5 tsp Nutmeg 1.5 tsp Thyme 1.5 tsp White Pepper .5 tsp Ginger 1 cup Ice Water I used the 3/16 plate to grind the bacon, the moose was previously ground with the same Mix all spices in with the water then add to meat/bacon mixture. Place in covered container overnight(plastic) letting the flavours meld. Stuff into casings or you can form into patties. I gradually added the salt until I got it to where I liked it. The bacon contains alot of salt so not much extra was needed Try her out and let me know what ya think. This is as close as I have ever came, with a wild game breakfast sausage.
