I got a Mad Millie sausage making kit for Christmas :) :) :) very pleased. I made actual sausages yay! :D Actually 2 pairs of hands works better so I should say WE made sausages. Quite easy, superb result, much cheaper than buying good sausages.

I like Blackball sausages and they are ummm please no lawsuits but I'm pretty sure around $23.95 per kilo. You are paying for the labour involved, so if it is your labour (free) you can spend your money on the ingredients.

Kit consists of an old-fashioned mincer with attachments for sausage-stuffing and a pack of sausage casings enough for 6kg of sausages (hope I remembered that right). You can get all sorts on the web but it was nice to have a kit that I could get started right away. Of course, you can also use the mincer for other things unrelated to sausages e.g. I have some rib eye steak that is too fatty to eat as steak, and I can make that into gourmet burgers.

Happy eating everyone

Wish you had some pictures, sounds great. My daughter makes them with my old cake mixer and a sausage attachment, that I never took out the box. Otherwise I'd look at your idea. Well done, I bet they are tasty too. I don't eat meat, but have 4 big meat eaters in the house.

Yum! So much more filling than supermarket ones. I have a big appetite but feel stuffed after one or two 'real' sausages. And the flavour possibilities are endless!

My favourite way of serving them, cooked, split, filled with creamy mashed potato with finely chopped onion in it, topped with grated tasty cheese, grilled and served with a slice of beetroot!

I have made my own sausages for years.
Most manufacturing butchers will sell you casings.
When I am out of casings I make home made bread crumbs & crumb the sausages pack & freeze.
Wonderful to be able to eat sausages & know what's in them
