Homemade Deer (Venison) Bologna

Print PrintShare with Friends


This is a great recipe for the hunter that likes to make there own bologna. I use the ground sausage you find in your local gerocery store. I like the Jimmy Dean Ground Pork Sausage thats in the plastic bags. Dont use the sausage that already has casings on it. You can leave out the liquid smoke and use a maple breakfast sausage for a sweet taste. You can also use reagular beef hamburger instead of Venison if you wish. I dont like my bologna spicy hot so I dont add the red peppers. Also the only place I could find the Morton Tener Quick Salt is at my local Hardware store. I dont know why my grocery stores dont carry it.
