Venison Breakfast Sausage

My daughter brought a big doe over late Sunday afternoon. By 8:00pm everything was done, packaged, and in the freezer except a ten pound batch of breakfast sausage. We had already mixed in the spices, but I always let the sausage spend the night in the fridge so the flavor of the spices can attain it's full strength.
By 9:00am the next morning I had the stuffer set up, the casings soaking, and everything else I'd need close at hand.
Here is the results of our hard work.

Do you use your own recipe or buy a seasoning mix? Is it all venison or is there some pork in there? What sort of casings did you use? It does look good.

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...

Looks great, thanks for sharing the pics. Along with RegularJoe, I am curious of the recipe and pork mixture.

I usually mix my own spices but this time I was ordering casings from Sausagemaker and saw they had a deal on three different breakfast blends and I gave it a try. With the price break the deal worked out to nine bucks for each of the three mixes and if I stick with the recipe I'll end up with 150 pounds of finished product.
I used the 22mm sheep casings, which fit on the smallest stuffer tube I have with plenty of slack and that allows them to come off the tube quite easily, so I get very little breakage.
This sausage can be made of 7 lb.s of venison to 3 lb.s of pork butt, which is what I used, or you can use all pork.
I saved out just enough to make a couple of patties and had one for dinner. I was quite happy with it.

Looks great!



My favorite venison product. Don't roll my own, but my butcher makes great stuff, very similar to Kessler's store bought. Have 20lbs in the freezer.

Looks awesome. I've never made the link sausage. I make my own simple breakfast sausage but never put it in casings . I buy pork fat/trimmings for $0.58 per pound from our local Redners Supermarket. Mix ~ 3 to 1 deer meat to pork trimmings , sage, fennel seed, salt, and brown sugar. Cheap and good.
