The Verdict....

I rolled the loose meat into mini-sausages and sauteed them in some EVOO.

I made a simple sauce using this... some garlic and fresh basil...

My dinner...

It was a little salty on the backend, which was interesting. I don't use much salt when cooking, so I may be mote sensitive to that. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will not use as much salt. I think the pork back fat has salt in it too so that probably contributed to the saltyness.
Even so, these were some of the best sausages I have ever had. It's all I can do to not go up and eat the rest of them. It was a little bit of work, but well worth it.

Great job. Points!points.gif

This is one of my favorite recipes from that book. I bought a 40 lb box of chicken thighs and made a butt-load of them 2 summers ago. Everyone I shared them with loved them. Need to make some more this summer.

Thanks guys! I figured I'd add one last picture of the links cooked. Grilled these up and added a salad.

This is our first foray into sausage making, but there will be more!
