Gonna start saving up the hogs we kill and at end of winter grind it all up and turn it into breakfast sausage. Anyone have a good recipe to make our own?

For years I just used Old Plantation for breakfast sausage and used 1.5 times their recommended amount plus add a bit of ground red pepper. That is what the parents liked and makes a good Breakfast sausage.

Make sure you and use pork fat, trust me. Wild hogs are lean and need that fat ratio to make a good sausage.

Been reading that on some recipes. You think I could add in bacon for the fat part?

I wouldn’t use bacon. I do like to use pork belly for wild pig.

Drive up to Muenster and get some seasoning mix from either Hess Meats or Fischer's. They will mix it up fresh for you, not the bulk bags they have from Excalibur.
Hess is spicier than Fischer's.

Brings back old memories. We called it hog killing weather when I was growing up.

Pendry's makes some of the best sausage mixes and chili blends you can buy.

I've been looking at Walton's for some new processing equipment, is the Excalibur seasonings they sell any good, any one have experience with them? I looked at some of the pendry's seasonings too.

we always used store bought pork boston butt equal amounts for both feral hogs and venison for our sausage. There should be enough fat in the Boston Butt to even out your sausage.

Missed this, been down at the ranch working & hunting.

On the breakfast sausage, I fiddled with different recipes until I tried AC Legg’s Old Plantation Seasoning. That’s what I use now & have for a good while. One package per 25 lbs of pork, and I like to add a little more than what’s called for. It’s good stuff, everybody likes it. They make several different blends to choose from depending on your taste.

On the fat, if your meat is pretty lean (not all feral pigs are lean), I prefer to add bacon ends & pieces to the grind. In the past I have added domestic pork fat and have cut it with pork shoulder and pork belly, but IMO the bacon ends & pieces taste the best (I pick all the thick meaty bacon out and save for frying, I only grind the fat).

For pan sausage, I like to add a little more fat than what I use for smoked sausage. That extra fat makes the patties fry better.

Their sausage mixes are just as good!

Breakfast sausage is EZ, first kind I ever made. I got the recipe someplace but keep it simple. If I recall, black pepper, salt, a little red pepper flakes, I think a small amount of cloves, and sage plus sugar. I do the country style where you cut it into patties. Actually I pre-cook the patties and then freeze them. For breakfast I take out two and do the "brown & serve thing while I cook a couple of sunny side up eggs and grits. Breakfast done in 3 or 4 minutes.

You can but I would not do a 70/30 mix. 80/20 maybe as bacon has alot more fat then say pork shoulder

Keep in mind that you'll add a bacon flavor as well. that may or may not matter depending on what your making. You can get pork belly at the asian markets (and even walmart sometimes). It works much better IMO.

Agreed. I'm not a big fan of adding bacon. I've added pork belly a few times.

Can't believe you have to add much fat with wild hogs. 20% or 30% bacon sounds like overreach. Maybe throw in 10% brisket or chop up a Boston butt and and be done with it. I used to make my sausage with 50% deer and 50% wild hog. Added nothing.

Of course, that was there when hunting Beeville and those hogs were full of sweet meat.
