How Do You Cook Your Sausage?

Ok how do you guys cook your deer sausage? I just put some water in a deep pan or pot, and put it on the stove. Is there some kind of recipe to jazz it up a little? Also, have you ever cooked it in the package? I tried putting some various spices in the pot last night, and its not agreeing with my stomach this morning, plus is tasted horrible. Thanks.

I have mine vacuumed packed, and cooking it in the package works great. Good sausage shouldn't need anything else except maybe some beer.

I don't know if you can really add anything after the processing is done to make it good. Either add your spices after you cook it or before you process it. I just go on the stove in water for 45 minutes. Have to make sure that stuff is done though otherwise you'll be sitting on the throne a lot of the day.

I boil mine in water, or water and beer, plus I have grilled it, and fried it. Boiling it in water or water and beer is the best, for both polish and country style.

I bake mine in the oven. One hour at 350 if thawed. One hour and 15 minutes if frozen. Put it in a roaster with about an eighth inch of water in the bottom. Turn it half way through. It gives it a little bit different texture. Really good. As far as extra seasonings if your sausage is seasoned right when you make it you don't need anything else.

I also make canned sausage. Put it in jar and hot bath for 2-3 hours. Makes a great snack when fishing or hunting. Just eat it right out of the jar.

not that you care to know or anything, but I've already been there twice today. I made the mistake of putting choppped onions in with the water. LOL. I dont know what posessed me to do that, like I said I just wanted to try to kick it up a notch but failed miserably. Thanks alot for the advice guys.

I have on occasion, put it in a baking dish, mixed up some Stove Top dressing and placed it in the baking dish with the sauasage, and baked it. I also like it done on the grill, and with the weather we are having, grilling is definitely an option. And of course the old standby, like you do, with water in the pan. However, after the sausage has cooked for a while, I'll boil the water off and brown the stuff. If you don't it can look rather pale. I write this, as I am partaking in some sausage. I live in Minot and had S & K Processing do the sausage this year. Along with the fry sausage, I had brats made, mixed with beef this time, UMM, UMM!!

Gofishin,

How do you cook it on the grill? Do you cook it from raw or do you wrap it in foil? I was going to try it on the grill tonight. 50 degrees here now, suppose to be 65 for a high. Not sure how to do it on the grill though. Will be pork and deer sausage.

Next time try Aneta Meats. Not a big selection, but it's always good. Not to mention cheap. He handles alot of deer and is always quick to get it done. The longest I ever waited was till Jan. 1st. Usually done in 2-3 weeks if you get it in early.

I have an awesome recipe for sausage, it will be gone in a flash, sausage can be thawed or unthawed. Cut the sausage into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces, put into a crock pot, add
about a cup of water, then add ketchup and brown sugar, make your own little sweet and sour sauce, keep in crock pot and stir occasionally, then add some mustard to taste.
You may have to add some more ketchup or brown sugar or mustard depending on how sweet you want it.

I boil it in water when I'm out ice fishing.

grill it right on the grill, plain or with BBQ sauce

cut into chunks and split and fry on the stove.

put a steaming ring and some water in a crock pot and put the
sausage on the ring to steam for four hours

cut into small pieces and fry with some seasoning and add eggs & cheese, server in a warm flour tortilla

Peel casing and cut into small chunks, brown and use in spaghetti sauce

I like to make a stew in the crockpot. I cut up two rings into small chunks, chop up 1 rutabaga, carrots, onions, and potatoes. Season with thyme, parsley, sage, rosemary, and add in a couple cans of V8, and maybe crushed tomatoes. Cook all day on low.

sfhunter - I prefer just placing it on the grill in the raw state and cooking it with the open flame. It gets nice and brown, plus it has the outdoors flavor. On occasion, we get some hoagie buns, fry up some green peppers and onions to go with them. Thanks for asking, now I know what's for supper, along with some Bush's Beans and MGD.

Cooking it on the grill is the way to go. No clean up. I usually take it out of the freezer and throw it right on the grill. Cook it on low for 30-40 minutes or so, sometimes longer, depends how many beers are being consumed. Throw it on some brat buns....mmmmm.
Even bring one of those small grills ice fishing and cook it right on the ice.

I put mine on the geroge forman and cook it slow and turing it so it gets all sides. It works great if you have a good casing it will not burst

Josh - I have used Meyers in the past and they do a fine job. I was just looking for something a little different this year. Next year I'll probably try someone else. I do like the S&K sausage better than Meyers though. For me, the only problem with Meyers is their cassings seem to be quite thick.

I usually boil our sausage. But I have also added seasoning to the water to add some spice. Mix some garlic salt in the water before you add the sausage that adds a good little kick. Anything salt based has been the only successful mixtures I have used. A cajun mix was pretty good in there too. definately grill it bare on the grill get those grill marks on it adds a better charred taste and texture. Putting onions in the water would probablly work good if you were making deer sausage soup,which actually sounds kinda good.
