I have to confess that while making and sampling all the sausages we made, this one was not my favorite. But that was before I made it into meatball soup! Yum!!! I’ll post that recipe tomorrow. First, here’s how to make the sausage…
If you need help with the basics of sausage making, check out this post HERE.
4 pounds ground beef
4 pounds ground pork
4 pounds potatoes, peeled, brought to a boil and drained
2 pounds onions, chopped
3/4 pound bacon pieces
5 Tablespoons salt
3 Tablespoons fresh cracked pepper
Run pork, beef, potatoes, onion and bacon through meat grinder. Combine all ingredients and mix well until fully incorporated.
Chill immediately. Cook a small bit to check taste. Add more spices or more meat according to your taste. Know that they flavor will alter some after a few days.
Use within a day or two or freeze for longer storage.
