Italian sausage recipe

Myself and some friends are butchering 2 hogs this weekend to make some breakfast sausage. Also we are going to make some using deer from this year. I was wondering what some of the spice blends you guys use to make Italian sausage. Any recipes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Here's a simple hot Italian sausage we've done and really liked:

    Hot Italian Sausage

    5-lbs pork
    1-cup cold red wine
    1-cup chopped fresh parsley
    5-tsp salt
    1-tbsp garlic powder or-4 to 5 garlic cloves, minced
    1-tbsp fresh ground pepper
    3-tsp cayenne
    5-tbsp fennel seed (the one change I made was reducing it to 4 and then grinding in a spice grinder)
    2-tsp crushed chili peppers
    5-tbsp paprika

    Combine all, mix well & stuff into hog casing

  • Good morning all I wanted to bump this to the top to see if there are any other recipes out there.  We are going to be starting in a few hours, so was looking for any other input.  Thanks

  • Here is a breakfast sausage recipe I've made that is pretty good. I did inrease the black pepper amount, but try it and see what you think.
