Today we invite Hannibal the Cannibal back into my kitchen and make his sweet Italian sausage. Does that make this a Wiener Wednesday??? I think it does!
If you recall, I purchased 3 recipe cards that were used as props on the most excellent TV show, Hannibal (R.I.P.). And, as with Hannibal’s Pork Liver With Bacon (check it if you missed it), I had to do a little research on making sausage, since the ingredients on the front of the card didn’t correspond to the cooking directions on the back.
Let’s just say that I have watched A LOT of sausage videos on youtube.
As with the Pork Liver, this recipe card is from the Season 1 episode “Sorbet.” In this episode, Will Graham and company think they are tracking someone who is harvesting organs to sell them on the black market…or are they?
Hell yeah, the Chesapeake Ripper made sausages! And here’s the recipe…(plus video of me actually stuffing the sausage!)
Mr. Kinsey, noted author, and travel vlogger, did me a solid and filmed the sausage-making process from grinding to stuffing to cooking. He even bought me the sausage attachment to my KitchenAid mixer and the sausage casings. If you’ve forgotten, he is a hardcore vegetarian. Whatta guy!
Sausage making isn’t the prettiest thing in the world–you can’t make it not awkward. Check it out for yourself and watch the video!
(As always, the clips at the end are the best part, so be sure to watch all the way through. Yay, gag reel!).
