We love ring bologna in our family… has anyone ever tried taking any of the brat seasoning and mixing to make ring bologna…
@medeling32 I’ve never done Ring Bologna but I’ve made other products out of Bratwurst seasoning and it has always worked out well! I cannot think of any specific reason why Ring Bologna would present any specific challenges…anyone else have any thoughts?
Any chance you are from PA? Ring bologna is huge around Philly where the Dutch Amish influence makes some awesome products.
Just thinking about the social media thing. I do follow your Facebook page. ( I think my family took a collective gasp when I finally signed into that). I’m still trying to figure out how the pound symbol(#) ended up being a hashtag!?
@ihang10 So then I would say that protein extraction is probably what is causing your issue. The fat renders out of the product and gets trapped between the outside of the sausage and the inside of the casing. Then when the product cools the fat congeals and you can’t get it to adhere. Mixing for a few more minutes will probably help resolve your issue. The other thing is when do you add your fat? Sometimes if you just mix in your fat with your lean the lean can coat the fat chunks but never really bind with it, so I would suggest you add it during the second grind.
@Jonathon The sausage was for Easter family dinner that didn’t happen because too many people were sick. The bottom round was sliced deli style & packaged for future French dip & roast beef sammies.
