Oct 25, 2013 Guest Foodie Excellent flavor and simple to make. The sausage has a nice bit of spice to it with the cayenne. Jul 1, 2013 andy87 Very good sausage! I omitted the sugar but kept everything else the same. Nov 1, 2007 Fritzz Made this sausage, and it was very tasty, and easy to make. The seasonings are a very nice blend, and compliment the other. The finest flavor sausage I've eaten in many years.
