     Chicken Breakfast Sausage

     2 lbs. Chicken Thighs fine ground

     1/2 Salt Pork ( skinless) fine ground

     1/2 lb. salt pork

     1 1/2 tsp. salt

     1 tsp. black pepper
     
     1 1/2 Tbs. Ground Sage

    Dan the salt pork I am going to replace with pork fat.It seemed to make it a little salty.

    Looks tasty. Why add any fat at all? I use skinless thighs and have never had a fat issue. I will occasionally add some of the skin in if the mix looks a bit dry. Have you tried Fassett's (Pop's) breakfast sausage seasoning? It's spot on good. I do add garlic to the sausage mix though.

    I used the pork fat just to see if it would brown better,my Italian Chicken sausage does not get as brown as I like.Fassett's (Pop's) breakfast sausage seasoning. I have not tried this.

    Looks great from here!  Your links look good as well.

    If you like using the salt pork, try a small batch with the salt pork, but don't use the other salt called for in the recipe.  Do a test patty and then adjust from there.

    Looks good too me! The linking looks very uniform. I've never stuffed breakfast sausage because I always mix it into omelette but that might be a nice change.

    Got it TY.  I've never bought sheep casings before so I'm just trying to get a feel for how much they should cost.
