I just bought a sausage stuffer and I am eager to make some Italian Sausage. I am normally not a strict recipe follower, but I would like to get some guidelines for ingredients and proportions. I searched here and google to find some ideas. I didn't have much luck on chowhound and most of the recipes I found on Google didn't call for garlic, which surprised me. If you have made a good Italian Sausage (preferably a bit spicy), can you share your tips? Grazie Infinite!
