Like sausages but don’t like the fact that you don’t really know what’s inside? Try making your own. For an even better and healthier version – try making chicken sausages. Here are 4 delicious recipes for homemade chicken sausages.
Before I give you the actual sausage recipes, I need to inform you about the ingredients you need to start making them. First of all, you will need a meat grinder as well as a sausage maker. If you want real sausages, you will need sausage casings as well. It’s best to leave the skin and some fat on the meat, because sausages are not very good if they are dry. After that, of course, come the ingredients for each individual recipe.
1. Kids’ Chicken Sausages
This is pretty much the basic recipe for chicken sausages; they are called “kids’ sausages” because they are not too spicy and are therefore suitable for kids. You will love them too. It is a very mild but also a very tasty recipe. To make these sausages you will need: chicken meat, salt and some pepper. The amount of ingredients of course depends on how many sausages you want to make.
Grind the meat in the meat grinder and put it in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix everything well with your hands. Don’t put too much pepper if you’re making the sausages for your kids. Stuff each sausage casing with the same amount of meat mixture. You can now fry the sausages, grill them or freeze them for later.
2. Italian Style Chicken Sausages

Moving on to another country, and this time a country well known for sausages. Try German style chicken sausages. You’ll need: chicken meat, onion, garlic, mustard, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and cumin.

Stuff sausage casings and use the sausages right away. They can’t really survive for too long in a fridge, but they will do fine in a freezer. Serve with potato salad or even better with sour cabbage cooked in beer.
