"This is a great treat my Hubby and his buddies enjoy when they get together. I usually serve this chopped into bite sized pieces along with other pickled meats, pickled eggs and a cheese tray. If gluten intolerant make sure you are using gluten free sausage."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Boil the sausage until cooked through, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Step 2

In the meantime, bring the vinegar, hot sauce, vegetable cocktail, onion flakes, salt, mustard seed and hot pepper flakes to a boil; reduce heat and simmer covered for a couple of minutes.

Step 3

Place the bay leaf and garlic clove in a clean 1 litre mason jar.

Step 4

Drain the sausage and place in the jar.

Step 5

Pour the liquid into the jar up to the base of the rim of the jar, making sure the sausage is covered with liquid.

Step 6

Screw on the lid and allow cooling to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.

Step 7

These will keep for a couple of months while refrigerated.


No special items needed.

These are soooo good! I didn't have mustard seeds, but will definitely use them next time. Regardless, they are super good even without them! I used hot italian sausage, and next time will up the Franks and the red pepper flakes, simply out of personal preference for the heat level. Thanks for sharing this keeper!!!

This is my husband's review. It is good. If you like it spicy, up the cayenne in it. He had it after two days of it setting in the fridge. I did have to add a little vinegar so that the sausages would be covered all the way.

This pickled sausage recipe recipe reminds me of spicy Big John's you used to get at a gas station in a jar. Love it!!!
