Due to an impulse purchase at Costco, we have more mild/sweet Italian sausages than I know what to do with. I wanted a couple-few to stuff mushrooms and eat for lunch, and now we have enough to feed the entire neighborhood (which I would do if there were room to invite them over, but there's not). So please, give me your best recipes and ideas for Italian sausage! And your second-best, and third-best... Difficulty: no pasta, bread, or poratoes because we're eating low-carb for medical reasons.

I've been wondering this for a long time and internet searching doesn't reveal any reliable answers...on average, how many cows are there in a typical hamburger patty? Bonus, how many pigs in a sausage (would this be any different and why)?

I'm a big fan of sausage - all kinds of sausage. Street vendor sausage, fancy sausage, pork sausage, chicken sausage, beef sausage. I am traveling to Munich, Salzburg, and Vienna for a few weeks in July. Where can I get the best (for whatever definition of "best" suits you) sausages, whether it be a quick lunch at a vendor between sights or a sit-down dinner?

What does the mocking expression "chorizocracia" mean in Castillian Spanish? I get the literal meaning: "Sausage-ocracy" but I think there's a slangy connotation that I, as a non-native, am missing here. What does the term "chorizo" imply in a political context? Thanks!

I'm ready to finally break out the grinder attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer and make sausages. Where should I be looking? What website, books and/or recipes are must haves for a beginner?

Where can I get venison, moose, or other wild game sausages, either in the Seattle area or online?

Lamb sausage has been in the fridge for a week+ and has turned mostly brown and in some spots even hardened. It smells
fine, so please tell me if I'm about to provoke gastronomic disaster.

I've come into possession of several bison sausages, but I'm awful at cooking sausages on a grill. How do I do this properly? [more inside]

This should be pretty easy...
Does anyone remember which book of Richard Scarry's had an illustration of what I think was a pig holding a big sausage on a fork? We are going through old childhood books and the vision of that image is driving me nuts and I need to see it again.

Two parts: If I have a big piece of dry summer sausage that's developed mould, do I have to throw it away? And, how do I properly store it? [more inside]

I grew up in northern Michigan and spent my early years eating wonderful hotdogs and sausages cooked by Polish geniuses. Where in the Charlotte-Piedmont-North Carolina-anywhere in the southeast can I find a good meat market?
Something like this

I'm a transplanted Kentuckian who's been in the UK for almost two years now, and one thing I really miss is Southern-style sausage (think Jimmy Dean). Home made sausage gravy and biscuits is my number-one comfort meal and sometimes I just NEED it. [more inside]

This mefi post
made me hungry. Are there any restaurants in LA that serve a Full English breakfast? I consulted one of my old coworkers who was in town from Ireland for a while, and the closest he got was buying the fixins from the Irish store on Vine and making it himself.

You know those pickled sausages you can buy at convenience stores? The ones wrapped in plastic with a little bit of brine? I love those things. Especially if they're spicy hot. My dad used to buy them at the grocery store back when they had to be fished from a jar with a pair of tongs. How do I make pickled sausages of my own?
Has anyone done this before? I'm willing to go to a lot of effort in order to have a jar of tasty pickled sausages that I can access at a whim: boiling, cooking, canning, whatever. Though it's going to limit responses, I'm mostly interested in recipes that you've tried yourself and know to be good. (I'm also open to recipes for other pickled meat, as well.) Nutrition not a factor.

In this photo
, does anybody know what these bicycle riders are transporting in the giant sausages? Does the Russian caption (which I don't read) explain it?

Our kitchen has smelled like pleasantly spiced cooked sausage since last Saturday afternoon. But we didn't cook sausage that day. In fact, we haven't cooked sausage since we moved into this new townhouse 2 months ago. [more inside]

I'm a pretty good cook but I have no idea how to do some basic things. One of them is cook sausage. I know how to do it on a grill but with an oven? Should I pan fry it in oil? Throw it in the broiler? And for how long? I saw these sweet italian sausages at the supermarket today and figured it meant less actual cooking for me, but now I'm stumped. :(
