I had really been wanting this particular accessory for my KA stand-mixer, and Santa (aka: husband) bought me one. I am interested in hearing your best Italian sausage recipes (mild), the best combos/ratios of cuts of beef for a great burger, and meatloaf, meatballs, etc. I am wondering if anyone has opinions on sausage casing brands and types. Also, I would love to hear about other things I might be able to create with this thing. I am very excited about it. Thanks in advance.
