Wild Boar Sausage Recipe Suggestions Please!

My housemate killed a wild boar and had a lot of the meat made in to sausages. I haven't tried one yet but she's asked me to use the meat to make dinner for some friends. Any ideas on what I should make? Never having cooked or tasted boar sausage, I'm at a loss for what to do to turn it into a fantastic meal!

  1. Wild boar sausage can vary widely in its flavor profile. Many people mix it with domesticated pork or pork fat, some blend in other domestic meats (my son prepares his using duck meat) so it's difficult to offer a sure fire recipe idea. I'd suggest you boil a link (or a piece of bulk if it's not cased) of the sausage and remove its skin. Taste a bit of it, then break up the rest and brown it in a skillet with a little olive oil. Taste that. See which best suits your personal taste.
    I use a lot of boar sausage (I usually brown it first) in meat sauces, layered as an ingredient in a strata with a good quality cheese to compliment the sausage, and in scrambled eggs in the breakfast menu.

      My mother in law is on the city council in her small German town. One of the perks is she gets wild boar sausage from the yearly cull. She dusts it in flour, and pan fries it. Serve with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, mustard and gravy.
