Several hours before baking and serving:
2 pounds sausage
1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
Place uncooked sausage in baking dish and heat in microwave on medium power for a minute or two, squeeze out fat, heat again and squeeze out more fat, repeat until very little fat remains. Mix sausage, bread crumbs, and eggs. The easiest way to combine ingredients: put on plastic gloves, slip a clean plastic bag over your hand, put a rubber band around your wrist to hold the bag over your hand and combine the sausage and the rest of the ingredients. Line a ring mold (other shapes may be used) with plastic wrap. Press the sausage mixture into the mold. Refrigerate for several hours or may be frozen.
Tip: We double or triple the recipe and freeze the extra in rings or hearts or other seasonal shapes. Several hours before serving time, place in refrigerator to thaw. Bake as directed.
