I make alot of my own sausage at home. This one is real good and I will make it again! One thing I do after letting it set over night is make a small pattie and fry it up just to check the seasonings and if I think it needs a little more of something then I add it to it. This was right on the mark. I will make this and even stuff it to make links for when my wife and I go camping up in Maine! It will be great with the lobster boil that I do.
