Here are a couple...

As you may recognize, I extensively use foodnetwork.com for recipes and save them to word documents for future use.

Great stuff.

People tell me I look like I like to eat.

Oops.

Elk Sausage Recipe Bobby Flay

4 to 6 pounds elk meat, well-trimmed (or other venison)

2 to 3 pounds pork fat, well-trimmed (2-1 ratio meat to fat)

1 tablespoon dry thyme

1 tablespoon dry oregano

1 tablespoon dry sage

2 tablespoons salt

1 cup finely chopped onion

½ cup finely chopped garlic

½ cup crushed red chili pepper flakes, (optional)

1 to 2 cups roasted, peeled, and diced green chili peppers (optional)

Sun-dried tomatoes (optional)

Additional garlic (optional)

10 to 15 feet sausage casing

½ cup maple syrup (for breakfast sausage - optional)

Grind each meat separately then mix together.

It is best if you grind the meat when it is very cold.

Mix the ground meat together with all the seasonings. Form into small patties.

Sauté a small piece and test for taste.

You may need to adjust the spices.

Next, place a length (10 to 15 feet) of sausage casing on a sausage horn and force mixture into casing.

Twist sausages in alternating directions to create 6 to 8-inch long sausages.

If well protected, finished sausages can be frozen in a non-frost free freezer for up to a year.

The sausages can be cooked directly on a grill or sautéed in a pan.

For best results, boil sausages first and finish on grill or pan.

Can serve with maple syrup.

VENISON BREAKFAST SAUSAGE

This recipe will make 10 lbs. of excellent breakfast sausage.

5 lbs venison (well trimmed)

1 T. sage

5 lbs pork (butt roast)

2 tsp. garlic powder

½ lb. lean bacon ends

4 tsp. dry mustard

2 ½ T. coarse pepper

1 tsp. nutmeg

4 T. salt

1/2 tsp. cloves

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. allspice

Cut venison and pork in strips that fit your grinder. Combine all the seasonings (except garlic) in a bowl and blend. Sprinkle the seasonings and garlic over the meat. A large, plastic tub works well for this. Toss the meat until it is all well coated with seasonings. Grind once and mix thoroughly. Fry one small patty to check the seasonings. Adjust seasonings, if necessary.

Grind the meat a second time. Again mix it well. Add about 1 cup water during the mixing. Cover with plastic and let stand overnight in a cool place before packaging. Package the same as you would hamburger.

Note: Reduce the amount of spices if you prefer a milder sausage.

My suggestion would be to do a search in Google Copycat Jimmy Dean Sausage recipes and there will be several web sites, you should find the copycat recipes for regular, maple and sage. I've tried them all and they are great.

On the summer sausage side, I've tried many different web site recipes and homemade recipes and really haven't found anything to my liking. However, I would recommend PS seasonings HSOforum, consistently great flavors and a wide variety of sausage to try. My favs are garlic summer sausage and jalapeno cheddar. The cure also comes with the package

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
