If your family loves summer sausage as much as mine does, grab this recipe and make your own summer sausage. This recipe is pretty simple. It basically is mixing ingredients, then put into the fridge and mixed a few more time over the next 24 hours. This allows the meat to really capture the seasonings and flavor well before cooking.
Once the 24 hours are up you simply shape and bake the sausage. Once it is cooled it is ready to eat. See it is very simple to make. The recipe makes 3 pounds but you can make more by adjusting the recipe. The sausage once baked into logs can be wrapped and put into the freezer until needed. So you could make a lot one time and then have it from the freezer multiple times before you would need to make more. To make this sausage you will need the following ingredients.
Extra lean ground beef, smoked sea salt, garlic salt, ground pepper, Morton’s Tender Quick and mustard seed.
The author ha some issues finding the hickory smoked sea salt but I found it and you can get it by clicking here. If you have problems finding the tender quick you can find it here. Since this summer sausage is made with lean beef it won’t have that greasy feeling that some do. I love summer sausage but I do not like them when they are too greasy. You can find this recipe on An Oklahoma Granny.
