Default The best brat recipe

Anyone care to share one, from scratch, not a pre-packaged mix from Sausage Maker or another?

Here is the one I make on a regular basis.

5lb pork butt
5 tsp salt
5 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp coriander
1 Tbsp sage
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp dried rosemary
1 Tbsp dry mustard
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cayenne
1 cup ice water

Grind the pork through a coarse plate. Mix the spices into the ice water & mix everything thoroughly with the ground pork. Stuff into hog casings.

Let me know how they turn out for you. They don't last long around here so I have to make them often.

Don't have my notes with me so I can only mumble some recollections. The thing that makes a brat a brat is mace so you have to have some of that. I've thrown in everything but the kitchen sink besides the mace in one batch or another. White pepper, black pepper, mustard, eggs, soy protein, purified salt, mustard, fenugreek, ginger, chipotle pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic (this doesn't really belong it a brat but it certainly is good), taragon - can't remember what else and don't have any amounts for you.

Large amounts of coddling, impulse purchases at every whim, disciplinary absenteeism. It's the perfect recipe for making brats.


Wait, what?

Made a couple tweaks: subd mace for the nutmeg, backed off the sage & rosemary & cayenne, added some dry milk powder. Links look fantastic. Will cook tomorrow and post results.
