Tried our hand at a new homemade venison breakfast sausage recipe today. I hate…despise venison so I’m not a good candidate to tell you how it tasted, but Mark said it was REALLY good!
My KitchenAid mixer has been my savior on more than one occasion! I use that thing for EVERYTHING! I used my dough hook to mix the pork and venison together once it was ground, we have a grinder attachment for it that lets us grind our own meat(works amazingly). Mark prefers patties to links, but you could easily stuff into casings & make links if you like.
Maple venison breakfast sausage
12 lbs ground venison
4 lbs ground pork ( we used a very lean boneless pork loin instead of a fattier chunk like the pork butt that some use)
1/4 cup salt (I used sea salt)
2 T. Black pepper
2 T. Red pepper flakes
6 T. Rubbed sage
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T. Maple extract
mix all very well and add to ground mixture. We packaged it in half pound packages and ended up with 14 packages ( once Mark got done taste testing and having some for breakfast)
