    there are some sausage "master formulas" that give you the percentage of salt and spices per pound of meat.  That might help you come up with a recipe.

    How many pounds are you going to make? To much green onions (scallions) can make your sausage really strong with onion.

    If you do a 5 lb batch of sausage add 1 1/2 cups. For a 10 lb batch add 3 cups. Note: for the 5 lbs add 1 cup, make a small patty fry it taste, If you want more add the other 1/2 cup. Same with the 10 lb batch. Its easier to add then it is to take out.

    We made a potato sausage a few years back that called for onion. To me there wasn't enough onion but I can't remember how much we used. I couldn't probably get enough onion for my taste but my wife and I pretty much eat them in everything and eat them raw all the time. Onion sandwiches are one of my favorite. But then you have my in-laws. If you just put a little onion in stuff they think its to strong. It kind of all depends on how much you like onions. Like nepas said a fry test would probably be a good thing so you know if you want to add more or not.
