"This recipe is to be used in place of Italian sausages without the casings, the amount of spice blend is good for 2 pounds of ground pork, I most always add in an a small onion and 2 tablespoons fresh garlic to the pork mixture in place of the dried, you might want to adjust the seasonings to suit taste, and for spicy add in 1-2 teaspoons crushed chili flakes or to taste, if desired you may cover and refrigerate the uncooked pork mixture overnight to blend the flavors even more!"

This recipe was made on 6/21 for the " SUMMER VACATION " Event in the Games Forum. Except for using ground fennel seeds instead of anise seeds,all the other spices and seasonings remained the same.Since there was only 1 pound of pork,and we like our Italian sausage a bit on the spicy side all the seasonings were used. This made a really great addition to homemade mac & cheese. After using this recipe,I won't have to go out and buy expensive Italian Sausage anymore.Thanks for posting such a wonderful recipe.
