*You can buy different sausage seasoning mixtures but be sure to read the instructions on the seasoning packet to see how much to use with 2 and 1/2 pounds of meat as it will vary from brand to brand. The homemade sausage seasoning recipe that we’ve linked to is for 5 pounds of meat. That means that you will use half of the seasoning mixture when making the above recipe, which will be about 3 and 1/2 tablespoons. If you’re unsure about the amount of seasoning to use, you can find good instructions here for how to figure out how much seasoning you need when making sausages.
