This beats store-bought summer sausages hands down. I highly recommend using extra lean ground chunk (great flavor) to avoid all the grease and fat. I cracked the mustard seeds before adding them, but otherwise didn't change a thing.
I love this recipe. I have made it 15 times. First time I made it exactly as written. Five stars as written. My family likes there sausage slightly hot so next time I added jalapenos chopped. I have also added chunks of cheese. Very good recipe without the hassle of a smoke house.
Easy to make but a little bland for our tastes. Next time (probably this weekend) I'll pump up the spices a bit add some smoked habanero and maybe some cheese and finish them in the smoker at 200 for a few hours instead of the oven. Thanks to ND24 for the advice! After making this several times what works for us is: 1. Let the mixture cure for 3 days instead of one. Mix it each morning. It makes the texture even better. 2. I added two chopped smoked habanero peppers and a quarter cup of sharp shredded cheddar.
This recipe is absolutely AWESOME!! My husband is a hunter and unfortunately I'm not fond of anything that has a hint of "gamey" flavor. I'm always looking for a new way to disguise deer meat but I've found that with many recipes I still can't "fool" myself. Not so with this one! The only substitution I made was deer meat for the ground. It came out perfect and I agree with other reviews it has WAY more flavor than the store bought. This will go in my permanent recipe collection. Definitely a keeper! We can't wait to see what happens when we add jalapenos and cheese!
Honestly I was so excited to make this. I followed the recipe to a T and was so disappointed with the outcome. Personally I don't think it tastes nearly as good as store bought. It was definitely missing something. Maybe regular salt as well?
