Most of my sausage making has been along the line of Texas Hot Links and Jalapeno/Cheddar Brats. Both smoked and fresh. Looking for a new recipe that may be more appealing to those who are shy of the spicy sausages. Thinking of a garlicy fresh bratwurst. Any recommendations on a recipe. I've been looking at some of the recipes at https://www.meatsandsausages.com/sausage-recipes, but would welcome some first hand recommendations.

These are some I've made from the Marianski website .

Augsburger -German .
I added 2 cloves of garlic to the formula .

Bockwurst .
Calls for egg whites and milk . I use whole eggs and heavy cream .

Frankfurter - wiener wurstel .
Has garlic in it , I upped the amount .

Italian .
Sweet , mild or hot .

Texas Hot link .
I make these with Carolina Reaper powder . I know you're asking about non-spicy . This is a fresh sausage that has a great spice profile . You could leave out the heat and follow the rest .
