Boudin sausage is a cajun sausage used in creole cooking. Boudin sausage can be made with a number of different meats. The recipe for cajun boudin sausage we are going to share here is made with pork, but traditional boudin sausage have been made with crawfishand even alligator. To make authentic cajunand creole food it is essential that you have boudin sausage for your recipes. I think you will find this recipe for homemade boudin sausage is easy to make and is delicious.Now let’s get started!

2 lb Pork Shoulder
1 lb Pork Liver
2 tsp Salt
2 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 Large Chopped Onion
3 Bunches Green Onions
1 1/2 tbsp Chopped Parsley
12 Cups Cooked Rice

Take the pork shoulder and the pork liver along with the salt and pepper and simmer in water until the meat is tender and starts to fall apart. Remove the meat from the pot and save the broth for later. Before the meat cools grind with  the onion, green onion, andparsley. After you grind the meat and vegetables mix with the cooked rice. When making most sausage you would use water to add to the sausage before you stuff it, but when making boudin sausage you are going to use the broth that you used to cook the meat in.  Use just enough of the broth to make the boudin sausage mixture moist. Take the mixture and stuff into hog casings. I hope you enjoy this recipe for cajun boudin sausage as much as we do. Good luck and happy sausage making.

How to Make Homemade Sausage - Chicken Sausage Recipe

I think I get requests for homemade chicken sausage recipes more than any other kind of sausage. Here is an easy homemade chicken sausage recipe I know the whole family will enjoy.

First off, before we start making the homemade sausage, let's talk chicken. If you are making homemade chicken sausage so you can eat sausage with less fat and calories then you will want to use boneless skinless chicken breast for your homemade chicken sausage. If you're not concerned with the fat or calories I suggest that you use boneless skinless chicken thighs. The thighs contain a higher percentage of fat, thus giving your homemade chicken sausage a more flavorable taste.

Now that we have that taken care of... Let's get down to business.

Homemade Chicken Sausage Ingredients

5 pounds Chicken of your choice
1 Small Onion
8 oz. Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 tbsp Rosemary
2 tbsp Oregano
1 1/2 tbsp Thyme
1 tbsp Sea Salt
1/2 tbsp Cracked Black Pepper
1/4 tbsp Crushed Red Pepper

Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Cut the chicken into small cubes. Chop the onion and add it to the chicken cubes. Grind the chicken and the onion together. Mix the ground chicken and onion with the dry ingredients. After you mix them you can make a small patty out of the mixture and pan fry it to test the flavor of your homemade chicken sausage. If you're happy with the taste of your sausage, place the mixture in the fridge to get cool. Now that your sausage has had time to cool off it's time to stuff your chicken sausage. Your can use hog casings for a larger sausage, or you can use sheep casings for a small diameter sausage, it's your choice. Once you finish stuffing your homemade chicken sausage your can cook it right then and freeze the remaining sausage for future use. I hope you enjoy this recipe for homemade chicken sausage and have fun making it.

Choosing the Right Grinder

If you're here you have probably already realized the benifits of making your own sausage at home. Many people think about what is added to the meat as the most important benifit and forget about the meat itself. Choosing your own meat can make for a healthier and more flavorful sausage. The only way to control the meat in your sausage is to own your own meat grinder.

When it comes time to choose your first grinder you will find that there are thousands on the market. To help narrow down your search we'll discuss your options.

The first thing to consider is how the grinder is operated. You can choose from manual or electric. Manual will be less expensive, but if you are using it often your arm will thank you for moving up to an electric model.

Make sure that the grinder you choose has attachments for that grinder so you can make sausage with it. You will need a stuffing tube for putting your homemade sausage in casings. Multiple grinder plates and blades are nice to have as well. Having a larger diameter plate you can easily grind your own meat for chili and for a more coarsely ground sausage.

Afer you have spent the time grinding and mixing, and then running your sausage into the casings you look back at the mess you made. This is the time when you'll be glad you picked a grinder that was easy to clean. I would advise you stay away from plastic models. Plastic is like a magnet for fat. After you finish grinding, the fat from the meat will stick to the plastic making it had to clean. Look for a grinder with all metal internal workings.

You can also look at what you already have. Many kitchen mixers have attachments that you can use for grinding.

No matter what type of grinder you choose you will find that you use it more that you thought you would. Not only will you be able to make homemade sausage, you can also grind your own meat for the best burgers you have ever eaten.
