You can tweak with the spices according to your personal tastes, I like mine with a good sage taste.After its all mixed you can fry a tiny patty about a Tabls. and taste it and maybe you want to add more of something, just make it your own!
- Put all the spices in a small bowl and mix them up with your fingers.
- Work it into the pork after sprinkling it all over the meat. Try not to mash it around too much, otherwise the sausage will be too tight.
I really liked this!!! I didn't have fennel & I omitted the cayenne pepper. I added about 2 tsp. dried onion. Will DEFFO make again...THANKS for sharing!!!
I made this omitting savory and fennel as well - I used my own garden thyme so of course didn't reduce the amount (that stuff is prolific! Have to use it up! grin) I also tripled the recipe because I used two pounds of ground venison with one pound of ground pork. Great mild sausage - super for our little ones - no icky heartburn - and very easy to throw together! Thanks for a great recipe!
I loved this. I used 99% fat free turkey, so to add moisture back in I grated 1/2 onion on the fine grater and 3/4 small green apple into the mixture, and added 2 T olive oil, and upped the pepper to 1 full teaspoon. For me, it was perfect.
