Homemade Kielbasa Sausage Recipe
Homemade kielbasa is surprisingly simple to prepare. With just a few ingredients, you will have fresh sausage on the table in no time!
Servings 10 servings
- 5 lb ground meat (beef, chicken, pork or turkey)
- 1 large onion grated
- 5 garlic cloves grated
- 1 tbsp chopped bay leaves
- 2 tbsp yellow mustard seeds
- 1 tbsp salt to taste
- 1 tbsp ground pepper to taste
- 2 Long Sausage Casings
Combine ground meat together with onion, garlic, bay leaves, mustard seeds and season it with salt and pepper.
Rinse through water sausage casings, some are sold very salty. Let water run through its inside; it will be much easier to put them on a sausage stuffer.
Remove the cutting knife from the grinder, attach the stuffer to the grinder. Put the sausage casings on the stuffer. You can change the size of a sausage by cutting casings into smaller pieces.
Fill up the grinder with meat mixture and slowly, as the sausage fills up with meat, pull it off the stuffer.
Make sure it’s not too thick, as it may rip.
Preheat the over to 350°F. Place sausage on a baking tray. Poke it with a toothpick, creating small holes, to allow liquids to escape while baking and to prevent sausage from ripping.
Bake it for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
