"This is so easy with amazing results. A mildly spiced summer sausage made with mustard seed and black pepper. It's great for snacks with chunks of cheese on the side."

This beats store-bought summer sausages hands down. I highly recommend using extra lean ground chunk (great flavor) to avoid all the grease and fat. I cracked the mustard seeds before adding them, but otherwise didn't change a thing.
Honestly, I was so excited to make this. I followed the recipe to a T, and was so disappointed with the outcome. Personally, I don't think it tastes nearly as good as store bought. It was definitely missing something. Maybe regular salt as well?
This recipe is awesome and the flavor is incredible, Way better than any Hickory Farms summer sausage.
A family favorite during the holidays.
Thank you so much
I love this recipe. I have made it 15+ times. First time I made it exactly as written. Five stars as written. My family likes there sausage slightly hot so next time I added jalapenos chopped. I have also added chunks of cheese. Very good recipe without the hassle of a smoke house.
Outstanding! I had high hopes after reading the reviews and it didnt let me down a inch.
This recipe is absolutely AWESOME!! My husband is a hunter and unfortunately I'm not fond of anything that has a hint of "gamey" flavor. I'm always looking for a new way to disguise deer meat but I've found that with many recipes I still can't "fool" myself. Not so with this one! The only substitution I made was deer meat for the ground. It came out perfect and I agree with other reviews, it has WAY more flavor than the store bought. This will go in my permanent recipe collection. Definitely a keeper! We can't wait to see what happens when we add jalapenos and cheese!
This summer sausage is great!!! I think next time I'll make a double batch...it went way too fast!!!
This is a wonderful recipe I keep it made and in the freezer all the time.
