If you are sensitive to eggs or don’t have any, you can leave them out. I just put them in to stretch the pork. I might even add 4 eggs next time. The herbs are also flexible – add more if your family likes a more herby sausage and less if they like plain better.
My pork came from Taylor-Made Farm in Lebanon, OR, and it is delish! We’re so fortunate here in Portland to have awesome local farmers.
