Adding Cheese

Postby rick54 » Wed Jan 22, 2014 10:48 pm

I'm looking to make a 5# batch of hotdogs in order to test a recipe and see if it's to our liking. I picked-up a couple of lbs. of the diced hi temp. cheddar cheese from Butcher-Packer to add to the hotdogs.
Is there a set amount you add to a 5# or 10# batch of mix, or do you just eyeball it?

I typically add 10% so a 1lb bag of cheese into 10lb of meat. I've got a friend who goes 20% in his jalapeno bratwurst and they're nice and gooey but not ridiculous.
