Sweet Italian Sausage: A true favorite of ours.  Great for meatballs, pizza, subs, served with eggs, etc.  Form into patties and serve with cooked mushrooms and onions, topped with cheese.

1 lbs venison
1 lbs pork shoulder or pork butt (fatty pieces work best)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp fennel seed (slightly more if you like fennel seed taste)
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp crushed sage
1/8 tsp cayenne
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Cut meat into 1 inch cubes and place in a large bowl.
In a separate small bowl, mix all remaining ingredients except for soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
Sprinkle the seasoning over the meat as well as the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
Mix thoroughly, cover and let sit in refrigerator overnight
The next day, grind meat.
Cook a small patty to test spice, and adjust if necessary.
