  • Venison Breakfast sauage

    Now that Swamper has his grinder up and running I thought I'd contribute my venison or wild turkey breakfast sausage recipe.

    Ingredients:

    2.5 - 3 pounds of venison cubes

    1 pound of bacon

    2 Tablespoons of salt

    1 Tablespoon of sage

    1 1/2 teaspoons of ground dry ginger

    1 teaspoon black pepper

    Slice the bacon about 4 times across the slices and mix it with the cubed venison. Grind the mixture once through a coarse grind plate. Mix all of the spices and shake the mix over the ground meat. Regrind the meat with the spices mixed in. I use a finer plate for the second grind.After the second grindI hand roll into one pound "chubs" and package in zip lock bags. I partially thaw and slice into patties just before use.Do not over cook as this will dry out quickly. I also use this recipe for wild turkey, grinding breast and thigh meat with the bacon. Heavy smoked bacon is best. I actually look for fattier packages in this case. When I make big batches I'll buy a box of Carnation bacon pieces and ends. Remember this is a fresh sausage product with no cure or smoke and needs to be kept cold unlike some commercial brands.

    If you like this and are really ambitious here are the 25 pound batch numbers/

    18 pounds of venison cubes

    7 pounds of bacon

    6 1/2 Tablespoons of salt

    8 Tablespoons of sage

    4 Tablespoons of ground dryginger

    2 Tablespoons of black pepper

      RD that sounds like some good sausage, close to what I make. Wife turned me onto bacon for fat in sausage a few years back. I've always used pork fat/trimmings or shoulder, in anywhere between 1-1 to 3venison-1pork ratios

          I really like to make link sausage, but I haven't found a good old-fashioned german sausage recipe, preferrably using deer. You have one to share RD?

            Great recipe, tried some tonight. One hind leg of the buck in my .35 Whelen/Big Game thread went into it. Well worth making.

            Even Mrs. Charley liked it, and she's not a huge fan of venison.

                Ended up with about 4 1/2 pounds of fileted meat from the Jake I collected on Monday. Have to get the grinder up and running tonight.

                Ended up with 12 one half pound packages of Turkey Breakfast Sausage after adding the bacon. All rolled in separate Ziplock sandwich size bags. I usually partially thaw in the microwave, thin slice and fry in a cast iron pan. RD

                    That sounds very close to my venison sausage recipe. bacon, spices and preparation.. sounds good.

                      Well, RD, you done did it. Now I have another one to try. I did a venison Italian sausage recipe that I love. Instead of bacon, I used unsalted pork belly. I'll have to try it with smoked bacon next.
