    Does anybody have a good recipe for making breakfast sausage using deer? Last year I used a Cabelas mix that the family really liked. It appears that they don't have it anymore when I looked on their web site.

  2. download the excel file in mesquite country sausage recipes thread. I have one in there.

    Thanks guys, the time is here not coming quick for me! My 15 y/o shot a buck a week ago Sunday. So he is going to become either sausage, salami or jerky maybe some of each. My brother has the Rytek Kutas book, i thought maybe someone had a recipe that they thought was the best they had tried.

    I make a simple venison breakfast sausage....

    I used a mixture of..
    2 1/2lb of ground meat
    2 1/2 tsps of salt
    1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    1/4 tsp of red pepper
    a dash or two of red pepper flakes
    and about 2 tsps of minced fresh wild sage or some dried sage.

    You can fry up a small bit to taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking.

    I should also say, I grind my venison with pork fat.

    Is it the "Wild Game Pan Sausage Mix". Had a little trouble navigating through everything there.

    yep. is awesome. make it every year.
  9. Cowgirl has a good recipe there, it is nearly identical to what I do except that I use bacon ends & pieces instead of just porkfat when I'm grinding. It adds just that little extra touch of flavor.

  10. Breakfast Sausage

    10 lbs of ground venison including pork fat. (usually 8 lbs meat 2 lbs fat) more or less to taste. I like more fat
    5 tbls salt
    1 tsp ground white pepper
    1 tbls sage
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1 tbls ground nutmeg
    2 tbls powdered dextrose
    2 Cups Ice water

    mix and stuff into 28-30 mm hog casings, 24-26 lamb casings or into roll and freeze into patties.
    If freezing for any length of time it’s best to leave out the sage as it will turn bitter. I don't like sage to begin with.

    I like and use bacon ends and pieces as well. Its often easier to find than pork trim and I agree it seems to add a little flavor.

    I made breakfast sausage yesterday for the first time. I have a grinder/stuffer from Gabela's and it was very very slow when stuffing. The grinder works fine, but the stuffing took forever. Is that normal, or was I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help.
