Italian Chicken Sausages

Italian Chicken Sausages


Delicious chicken sausages with a hint of tomato and mixed herbs – low fat and can be made gluten free – just request gluten free seasoning at checkout.


  • 800g minced chicken or turkey
  • 30g Tongmaster Italian chicken sausage seasoning
  • 70g rusk*
  • 100ml iced water
  • Sausage casings – natural (hog/sheep) or collagen


  1. Add meat, seasoning and rusk to a bowl and mix thoroughly - if using a complete sausage mix (which already contains rusk) rather than separate seasoning and rusk, add 100g.
  2. Add chilled water and ensure all ingredients are combined.
  3. Cover and chill for at least one hour or overnight to allow the spices to infuse the meat.
  4. If using natural casings – soak the casing for around 30 minutes, use a funnel to remove excess salt.
  5. If using collagen casings – there is no need to soak the casings, use straight from pack.
  6. Place the casing on the outside of the tube and begin to pass the meat through your sausage stuffer, tie a knot at the end of the casing to stop the meat passing straight through and continue to pass the meat mixture through the casing.
  7. Once the meat is finished, tie a knot at the other end and begin linking your sausages, twisting in opposite directions.
  8. Use a little vegetable oil on your hands to work the sausage with ease and create a professional sheen.
  9. Cook as desired or chill in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

*The rusk can be left out if you wish – making it less calories and values, in this case you would use the seasoning and skip the adding rusk step.
