Faux [Non Pork] Sausage Recipes
« on: March 03, 2008, 03:09:18 PM »
I tried this once and it was gross.  Got a recipe?

HB - for 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or turkey to make "Italian" sausage you can add 3 t paprika, 1 t fennel seeds, 1/2 t black pepper, 1 t salt, 2 garlic cloves, 1 t oregano and then if you like it spicy you can add red pepper.  I use a fattier beef so it is more like sausage.  For a "Breakfast" sausage it's the same paprika, but then 1 t sage, no garlic or oregano, and then add 1 T maple syrup.

It's ok, but not as nummy and moist and porkie as the real deal.

Okay I tried this for lunch.

It was too bland so I'll put my approx additions in parens.  It still isn't quite right, but the biscuits and gravy weren't too shabby.

2 lbs ground turkey
1 1/3 tsp paprika (1 1/2 tsp)--this probably should have been 4 tsp
1 1/3 tsp rubbed sage (2 tsp)
4 tsp maple (left this alone - cuz it was almost too sweet)
2/3 tsp black pepper (1 tsp)
1 1/3 tsp salt (1 1/2 tsp)
dash red pepper

If you experts see something wrong with my conversions, be sure and let me know.

Actually now that I look at it, I may not have used enough paprika, but it was pretty orange and by taste, I thought the sage was not strong enough.  I just don't know enough about this set of seasonings to know.  I also didn't have any fennel - maybe this makes a bigger difference than I thought.  I might have to get some.

I have used fennel, sage, red pepper flakes, ground black pepper, and salt. I never heard of using paprika before, and I don't like maple in my sausage.

This is from "Lucy's Specific Carbohydrate Diet Cookbook". I'm sure it could be made with other ground meats.

Breakfast Pork Sausage

3 lbs ground pork, unseasoned
1/4 cup warm water
3 tsp powdered sage
2 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 3/4 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp savory
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cayenne

Stir the spices together in a small bowl. Place pork in a large bowl and add spice mixture. With your hands, or a large spoon, kneed to distribute spices evenly.

Form into small patties for frying. Use a small amount of oil in pan and brown patties on both sides over medium heat.

Uncooked sausage can be kept in the fridge for only a day or two, but can be frozen in small packets.

I am not sure what FAUX means but I assume the non-pork means any recipie made with a meat that is not pork? So here is one...
1 lb Ground Lamb
1t salt
1/2 pepper
1/2 t cloves
1/2 t cayenne
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder

Mix and brown.

Just in case no one knows, even the non-pork sausages you buy at the market are still often stuffed in pork casings.  If you're making them yourselves, though, you know what is in them.
That's Shabby SHEIK not Shabby CHICK.  Hee-hee.

Italian Sausage

For every 5 pounds of ground pork or turkey:

1 cup water
2 T garlic salt
2 T fennel seed
1 T dried parsley
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper

Mix thoroughly with the meat, package in 1 pound packages with freezer paper and freeze; or, if stuffing for sausage links, wash casings before stuffing


I would imagine you could use ground beef also!

LOL   ;D

Would you have preferred "Pseudo"?  At least that is English (oh wait that might be a Greek or Latin prefix).   :D

I made some changes to the Turkey Breakfast Sausage from N.Traditions. For one, I didn't make it turkey  ;D I thought it would be dry. I used beef (and once 1/2 reg. ground beef and 1/2 ground venison). I just made sausage patties as I wasn't going to fuss with stuffing. DH liked it so much that I think we will use this recipe when we butcher this fall.

1 lb         ground turkey (or whatever)
1 small    onion, peeled and finely chopped
1/4 tsp   (I think I was generous with this) each cumin, marjoram,           
              pepper, nutmeg, oregano, cayenne pepper, and ginger
1/2 tsp    (again, I was probably making this a bit rounded on the spoon)
              each, dried basil, thyme, sage,
2 tsp       sea salt
1/2 cup    bread crumbs (originally called for 2 TBS but more bread     
               crumbs makes it moister - also I use gluten free bread crumbs 
              made from my leftover bread)
1            egg, lightly beaten
2 TBS      butter (I omitted this with the beef)
I added some organic cane sugar - maybe it was 2 TBS???

Mix all ingredients and chill well. Form into patties and fry (may need to add a little fat to the pan depending on how lean the meat)

The following recipes are for 10# of ground meat.  I use beef.

Hot Sausage
1 T Crushed red pepper
3 T Paprika
3 1/2 T Salt
2 T Sugar (I use a sprinkling of stevia powder)
1 1/2 tsp White Pepper
1 T Ginger
2 T Fennel seed
Enough water to help it all blend together nicely.

I have mixed it into raw meat as well as adding the seasoning to pre-cooked ground beef.  Both are tasty!

Sweet Sausage
1 T Ginger
1 1/2 T White Pepper
2 T Sugar (again, you can sprinkle on some stevia)
1/4 c Salt
2 T Sage
Water

Does anyone have a good bratwurst or beer brat recipe that they'd like to share?
