Chicken, Feta & Spinach Sausage

Postby Smoked » Tue Sep 08, 2009 7:18 pm

The last month or so I have been dabbling in making Chicken Sausages... Good stuff.

This recipe came out really good.. The flavor of the cheese was really good..


I did a small batch, just wanted to see how it would come out..


2 1/2 lbs Chicken Thighs. No Skin.
1lb Chicken Breast Meat
6-8oz Feta Cheese
1 Bag Of Fresh Spinach
1 1/2 TBS Black Or White Pepper
1 1/2TBS Kosher Salt (Or What You Like)
1 1/2 TBS Dried Marjorum
1oz. Water Per Pound


Image



Mix pepper, salt, and marjorum with water... Chop About 1/2 of the bag of spinach.. Allow the spices to mix with the water at chill the spinach.. Then grind the chicken through the medium plate..


Image


After about 30 minutes of chilling, add the chopped spinach first, mix well.. Then add the seasoning mix a little at a time till even.. Then add the cheese..

At this time pop it back in the frig and let set for about a hour.. We want the flavors to meld....


Image



Now stuff into casings.. I used 26-28mm sheep casing. You can use any size you want.. I wanted a smaller (Hotdog) sized link..


Image



Now you can cook the sausage any way you like... Broil, Boil, Grill, Fry or even hot smoke.

I cooked a few links on the grill and in a cast iron skillet with bacon grease... I really liked them cooked in the skillet.. Wow.. Very nice..


The wife's plate ready and served...

Enjoy!!!!!!

Smoked I think that you need to send a variety package down here for "independent research taste testing". Say 10# of each. I'm definitely going to have to try these recipes.

They look really good. I was looking at the very same thing at Costco's yesterday. I am going to have to give that a try. Oh yeah, the sun dried tomato/chicken sausage, too!~

I don't know if I have ever tried feta cheese or not, but this looks too good to not try. Thanks!

I have been using cojita cheese from Mexico it is similar to feta and is a non melting cheese. I started using it because it is available at my little local grocery and feta is not. I keep using it because I like it. Anyway thought I'd throw out an alternative for those of us closer to Mexico than Greece.

looks great Ken, I've been making chicken feta and spinach sausages for over a year now and everyone seems to really enjoy them. I like to add carmelized onions in mine then put them in a blender with the seasonings and a little water. I'm going to be making another batch this weekend as our Sausage turn in at our next comp.
