About this recipe: These classic homemade pork sausages are a staple in our family and loved for their simplicity and versatility. Much easier to make than you might think, all you need is a meat grinder with a sausage funnel attachment and a little adventurous spirit!
All you need to make great homemade sausages is a meat mincer with a funnel attachment. If you are new to homemade sausage making then using natural hog casings are a good way to go initially as they are robust and result in a nice thick plump sausage. Casings are usually sold in a variety of forms depending on your preference, and can be found readily online however it would be a great idea to speak to your local butcher for some first hand tips!

This is my first go at sausage making. Loved the taster patty though might use less salt next time. Just got to put in the skins - promises to be interesting. Just so excited to try pork n bramleys also pork n red onion. Thank you for such a fab selection x - 07 Jan 2016
Having been on an Artisan sausage making course, I was anxious to try the artisan sausages. Not impressed, but I had a great mincer and sausage stuffer so I thought I would try this solid looking recipe. Well, they turned out juicy and delicious. We (my wife and I) had our first taste of the mix the following morning in the form of breakfast patties from the left over mix we couldn't put in the stuffer. The following weekend we tried the real thing. Easily the best sausages ever. Meaty and juicy at the same time. The hog skins held up well (I chose the small skins to make chipolatas) and I can honestly say I can't see me buying another shop bought sausage. I did slightly tweak the recipe by using garlic powder as fresh garlic tends to oxidise and turn black, but other than that I followed it exactly. - 20 Mar 2017
