2 thoughts on “Egg Nog Sausage”
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.
