Egg Nog Sausage

A Savory/Sweet sausage that's completely unique
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time1 hr 30 mins
Total Time25 mins
How much do you want to make? 1000 grams


Optional Ingredient


  • Clean meat and remove any silverskin, cut into small strips or cubes and partially freeze. You want the temperature of the eat to be below 34f (1c)
  • Grind your very chilled meat/fat on a medium plate (6mm). Rechill
  • Mix the meat with all of the rest of the ingredients until it becomes very tacky. If you grab a small handful it will stick to your hand if you hold your hand upside down.
  • Stuff into your sausage casings, link, and prick out any air pockets. Refrigerate overnight.
  • You can cook these sausages any way you want. If you cook these on a stovetop or grill, you should cook them till you reach an internal temp of 155f (68c)
    I like to cook them sous vide at 145f (62.7c) for 2 hours then finish them on a grill, oven, or air fryer (optional) to tighten up the hog casing

    I’d like to use some of your home made egg nog for this recipe. Can you suggest adjustments to this sausage recipe besides subbing spiked eggnog for the bourbon, i.e., spice adjustments, etc? I love eggnog but I’m a minority of 1 in my family. Your egg nog recipe sounds great and may yield converts. I hope. Thanks and Merry Christmas! Thanks especially for all the hard work in putting the blog & videos together. They’re very well done.
