The best homemade sausages recipe ever – our weekend project!

We all love a tasty sausage in our house but finding a truly yummy snag without fillers and additives is not easy. The solution – as always – is simple; make it at home and take control!

I’ve been using my meat grinder for a while to prepare meals but this was the first time my daughter chirped up enthusiastic to take over. Honestly, I doubted her staying power, but I was pleasantly surprised when she handled the job like an able apprentice. She was both coachable and committed. It not only says a lot about my daughter, but it also shows just how easy to use the Luvele meat grinder with sausage making attachment is. Besides threading on the casing, which she found rather icky, she took it all in her stride. 

Come dinner time she proudly proclaimed they were the best she had ever had. Now while there may have been some bias motivating her, the whole family was unanimous in agreement. 

I based the seasoning on a mild Spanish Chorizo. Feel free to bump up the chilli or any of the other spices for a livelier version. Be sure to read our tips for making sausages at home before you begin.
