Another easy homemade Italian sausage recipe, great for any recipe that calls for ground meat. You can use this sausage for pizza toppings, for a spaghetti tomato sauce, as a lasagna filling or anything else you like.
Preparation time: -, Cooking time: -, Serves: 6 - 8
2 lb ground pork
1 Tbsp salt
Tbsp ground fennel seeds
1 1/2 Tbsp sweet paprika
1 Tbsp finely minced fresh garlic
1/2 - 1 Tbsp sugar (adjust to taste)
1 tsp black pepper
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
Add all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 12 hours (best if overnight).
You can stuff the mixture into sausage casings if you like but you don;t have to. You can use the sausage meat as it is for a pizza topping, as a replacement of ground beef in lasagna, as a tomato and meat sauce for pasta or anything else you like.
The sausage mixture can keep for at least 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze it for one to two weeks.
To stuff the meat into sausage casings use a funnel (that is if you don't have a sausage making machine) and gently shove the meat into the sausage tubes. When the sausage has the desired length, twist the two ends, cut and tie them in knots, then continue with the next sausage.
