Frugal=Homemade Sausage

Homemade Sausage on the Cheap!

We had a huge zucchini, large bell pepper, and onion from the garden and thought, some Italian sausage would go great with these goodies. So we found a recipe and bought the needed ingredients.

I have issues with raw meat, so it was the Hubs job to make the sausage. The jokes were a flowing from me as he squished the sausage ingredients together...come on, Giuseppe was making Italian Sausage, he was asking for it.

To my point. It turned out fabtacular! He cored out the zucchini, stuffed it with the sausage, baked it, covered it with homemade marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese.

The best part? Making our own molto buono sausage cost $1.71 a pound! Around here if you find good Italian sausage at $2.99 a pound it's a great deal! We ended up with little over 5 pounds of sausage plus about a pound of "rib tips" to use later.

Yes, it took some time to make, fortunately we have the Kitchen Aid attachments which made it a ton easier, but in the end it was worth it as we enjoyed the meal with Friemly and beaming with pride of our Frugal-Fantabulousness!

  1. I just wanted to say that I have issues with raw meat too and that is why my hubs has to prepare it 99% of the time. If I prepare it (which I can do) I tend to not eat it afterwards because I get too grossed out. lol:)
