Hey guys, as you may have seen, I just returned from my 2nd trip to HUNTERS CREEK RANCH. It was another SUCCESSFUL hunt. We brought back a total of 27 pigs!

We enjoy processing our own meat. We have been doing it for the past 16 yrs and have tried all sorts of recipes. This year we have already made:
150 lbs of Jimmy Deans Breakfast Sausage.
50lbs of smoked pepper sticks with high temp. Pepperjack Cheese in them.
25lbs of Spicy Italian Brats with high temp Mozzarella Cheese in them
25lbs of Beer Brats
25lbs of Summer Sausage with High Temp Cheddar cheese in them.

And we still have about 130lbs of meat left to do. So does anyone have any GREAT sausage recipes out there?

Some other ideas we have done in the past have been:
Andouille sausage brats with Jambalaya mixed in (sort of like a Boudin sausage)
Polish dog with sauerkraut mixed in
Brats with apple pie filling mixed in (great for breakfast)
pepperoni sticks
just to name a few!

Anyone care to share some of their recipes?

Thanks in advance!!

I use this recipe for Bratwurst.

http://forum.gon.com/showthread.php?t=776531

I think mixing in sauerkraut would be delicious.

I also just use ground pork in spaghetti sauce and chili.

There are some good ideas in the Recipe Section on this forum.
I take the meat from larger (tougher) hogs and grind it. In just about anything that's highly seasoned it works just as well as ground beef. Try it in spaghetti, chili, meat loaf, lasagna, etc. I'm due to make Shepard's Pie this weekend.

I also cook it in a mustard sauce that hasn't drawn any complaints.

During deer season if I get a hog I try to take a deer as well, a fat doe is nice. I take both to my processor and mix the hog and deer together half of each and put it in smoked sausage for the pit. This saves me from having to buy their pork.

I use the whole bone in shoulders to make carnitas. They are delicious! Don't trim the fat!

My favorite and easiest recipe.

1) Hog meat. Any amount, any cut. Not ground.
2) Bottle of bbq sauce.
3) crock pot

Directions:
Put meat in crock pot. Put bbq sauce on meat. Set to low. Come back 10 hours later. Put meat in tortilla. Eat.

Gonna have to try these that were shared. Thank you!!

I forgot to mention we also have made pineapple brats (crushed pineapples and pineapple juice inside), a German brat with diced potatoes inside. Of course, can't forget beer brats with pepper jack cheese inside.

We have also done some pulled pork and smoked loins. Had my Mexican buddy make us some homemade carnitas.

Over the past 17 yrs of hunting pigs in Texas and Oklahoma we have tried numerous recipes and most of them came out pretty tasty! Lol

Would you mind sharing your Jimmy Dean recipe?
I have a ham curing recipe but I'll have to email it. Its a word doc and I can't figure out how to post it. If anyone is interested, pm me your email and I'll be happy to share it

That Jimmy Dean recipe is interesting. I have a breakfast sausage recipe everyone raves about but it doesn't have coriander. I might try that. Also the JD recipe doesn't have any sugar, but most breakfast sausage recipes do. The amounts look low on the JD recipe though. For instance, 1/4 t rubbed sage for 1lb meat, where as I use 4T for 7 lbs meat. (There are 3 t in a T, so I'm using 48x as much sage for 7x meat)

My recipe:

Recipe for 7 pounds meat

3T Salt
4T Rubbed Sage
7T Brown Sugar
1T Red Pepper Flakes(heaping)
2t Red Pepper
2t Black Pepper
1T Accent

As others have said, check the recipe forum for many more ideas. My favorites are burgers, chili, smoked hams, and BS jerky
