How about just asking for "ground meat" - plain. Its not that hard to add your own seasonings and garlic later on.

sausage in NZ specifically means the stuffed in tubes type sausages rather than 'sausage meat' which is the ground meat sold in packets.She can stuff her own but it means having a stuffing tube or a food processor attachment for it as well as buying the tubes of skins.

Sausage meat in NZ comes looking like this:



Or like this:



The tubes, not the men

DH HAS bought a sauasge stuffing machine, and tonight bought 2 sizes of casing. In the mean while the butcher will process my very good quality Merino and suffolk hoggets into meat I want to eat, and DH can practise with some less desirable meat from the freezer while he is perfecting his new art.

DH's sausage machine arrived. Despite my assertion from date of ordering that I have ZERO interest in helping, I ended up spending an hour this morning because it turns out sausage making is a 2 person job. Even tho my sausages turned out better than his, I can confirm it was a very unrewarding expereince.

I am a sausage end user.

LOL! I've often wondered if I wanted the sausage stuffer attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer - what did you find distasteful about the process? Maybe you'll talk me out of it!

It's not hard to make sausage with a Kitchen Aid mixer and sausage attachment... the work is the grinding up of the meat!

And caseless breakfast sausage links or patties are SUPER easy.

As for the flour, I'd provide a mixture of low carb flours and oat fiber and maybe some resistant starch.

Boredom was a huge factor. The noise was unexciting. My arms and neck muscles got tired when I was pressing the meat into the stuffer. Raw meat is not a fun medium to play with.

All in all I just plain didnt enjoy it. I get some people would be as happy as pigs in mud to do it, for me though, it just didnt crank my handle. I would much rather do almost anything else - including housework - than do that again.

Alas, it appears I will be doing it in a couple of weeks after we've eaten all of this batch so he can try a new reciepe. I am thinking of buying a one man sausage stuffing machine as an early present.

LOL Beetle! I like the way you think!!

I actually enjoy grinding the meat in my KitchenAid grinder attachment, so I'd probably enjoy the sausage-making then. Maybe I'll still get one - some day.
