Making your own sausages at home

Hey everyone,

I’m a big fan of grilled sausage. Everything from beer brats, to chorizo, to chicken-apple links, to spicy Italian with fresh herbs. I love ’em all!

What I don’t love so much is not knowing exactly what’s going into my sausages, or under what conditions they were processed. Add to that my love for kitchen gadgets, and experimentation, and it’s pretty obvious why I would enjoy making my own sausages so much. Like more heat? You can do that! Think store-bought sausages are too salty? You can change that! Wonder what it would taste like to mix it up with chicken and Thai fish-sauce…give it a try! (Then let me know!)

If you have a Kitchen-Aid, and you haven’t picked up the meat-grinder and sausage attachment yet, you really want to.  It’s a lot of fun!

Here’s a great video I found on YouTube that shows how easy it really is, and, as always, we’re here to answer any questions!
