Homemade Sausage

Yes, you can make sausage homemade.  I had NO IDEA until a few years ago.  Sausage can be made with a few spices and just about any meat you like.  We enjoy Chicken Apple Sausage.

Tablespoon Frying Pan Pork Sausage Spice
1/4 cup applesauce (any kind is fine.  Homemade works great)
