If you're going to make sausage links instead of patties, the day before you plan to stuff the sausage, rinse the sausage casings under cold water inside and out. Prepare a solution of 1 cup water to 1 capful of cider vinegar. Soak the casings in the solution overnight in the refrigerator.

Grind the meat twice through the sausage plate of a meat grinder or in a food processor and place it in the bowl of a stand mixer. Combine the milk, bread crumbs, and jalapeños in a small bowl and set aside. Combine the seasoned salt, sage, ginger, dry mustard, white pepper, coriander, mace, and nutmeg in a small bowl and set aside.

Fit the stand mixer with a dough hook, add the bread crumb mixture to the meat, and blend on low speed for 2 minutes. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix on medium for about 5 minutes, or until well blended, adding ice water as needed. Add the cheese and blend in for 1 minute. Stuff the mixture into the casings or make into patties and cook as desired.
