SAUSAGE MAKING RECIPE: Lesley's Homemade Italian Sausage

This recipe can also be used to make sausage patties instead of stuffing it into casings. Great for the barbeque!

This is one of the sausages that we make every year and will continue to make every year. It's just that good. It might be hotter than you would like so you might want to reduce the cayenne and chili pepper flakes, taste, and then add more if you like it hotter
