If you’re the kind of person who adores meat based dishes and you’ve never tried making your own sausages, then we’re sorry to tell you that you’ve been missing out on something very delicious indeed! It’s also a task that’s a lot easier than most people think it is. Lately, we’ve been feeling very enthusiastic about the idea of making our own all-beef sausages. This desire was partially spurred by the fact that some of our family members have very subtle food sensitivities to the small ingredients that are often used as filler in store-bought or mass-produced brand sausages. By making them ourselves, we know precisely what’s going into the casings and we can guarantee that what we’re serving is friendly and safe for everyone around the table.
Of course, once you’ve got your sausages made, it’s always nice to have an idea of what you can make with them as well. Beef sausages are a fantastic ingredient for all kinds of delicious dishes. That’s why we’ve been on the lookout for recipes that will help us make the sausages themselves and recipes that will help us serve them in all kinds of scrumptious ways.
