Chicken Frankfurters

Makes 7 sausages

So everybody is now paranoid about pink slime and other spooky mankind invention intervening the culinary world. It made me also think of the question I had for several years regarding sausages that are to smooth with artificial colors. What are they made of? The sausages can be very affordable with a lot of sausages in one package (and sometimes it doesn’t taste meat at all), how can?!?! Well, a good way to test it is to let a cat or dog sniff it, if they reject then you bet it isn’t good for you either. Let me save the day with this recipe!

Anyway, let’s get back to business..So, I desperately crave for frankfurters and bratwurst. I use to stay at my belated beloved uncle in Frankfurt during holidays. My aunt use to take us to the best frankfurters and bratwurst shop and eat it while is hot. Wow, nothing beats German sausages. Here, I can’t eat anything, all is with pork. There is no choice than to make it on your own.

I tried a lot of recipe but this combination is the one that suited my taste buds. It will taste even better if you fill it in a casing the boil it. Unfortunately I don’t have any and ordering is out of the question. So, with a little bit of innovation I used plastic wraps as a substitution.

450 gr minced beef
50 gr minced chicken
1 onion
1 garlic
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp majoram
1 tsp mace
1 tsp mustard
2 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp white pepper
1 egg white
2 tsp salt
¼ cup milk

How to prepare:
-grate the onion into thin slices then chop it into little pieces, set aside
-add all the ingredient in one  bowl and kneed or use the food processor for 10-15 minutes
-stuff it into the sausage casing and boil for 30 minutes
-if you don’t have a casing, cut plastic wrap 15 cm long and wide
-add 3 tbs of meat and make it long
-wrap it tight
-add a cloth on the bottom of the steaming pan
-place the wrapped sausages
-steam for 20-30 minutes, cool it off
-take the plastic wrappers off
-fry it
-decorate is as you like
