Sausages-need source

I've been getting Shelton's turkey ones that work with compliance, but boring and nto crazy about the flavor.

I'll be at a Whole Foods on Friday, could someone give me a brand and type to save my aging eyes the label squinting over them all? I'll still double check the label of the suggested ones-just in case.

Thanks,

Joy

I don't know if this is practical for you, or if you even eat pork, but US Wellness meats sells bulk pork sausage that is compliant, very tasty, and from well-treated pigs. You can shape it yourself into patties or whatever, but I also cook it like ground beef and use it for Melissa Joulwan-ish hot plates (from Well Fed).

I LOVE their sausage!! I buy the ground sausage and use a little sliders mold and make small sausage patties for breakfast. They are so good and I never get bored. I thought I would say that about bacon, but I'm sick of bacon and eat a sausage patty every day. I can get about 11 sausage patties from 1lb, so it lasts longer that you'd think. It would be delicious in other recipes- stuffed peppers, soups...whatever.

They also have some sausage links, brats, kielbasa, etc. Sign up for their newsletter and you can get a 15% off coupon code just about twice a month.

Um, sorry...saying things like that on here will get you banned...

Sick of bacon. Does not compute.

Making your own sausage is so easy. I take a lb of pastured ground pork and add 1 tsp fennel seeds, 1 tsp chili flakes, fresh sage and salt and pepper to taste. That is my basic breakfast sausage recipe. You can do billions of variations.

I make breakfast sausages out of pork, turkey, chicken, beef, or a combination. Yummy stuff! I can't seem to tolerate the pressed chicken sausages, even if they are compliant.

Sick of bacon.... how does that happen? Can you describe the experience for us? I didn't know it was possible, and I'm very intrigued....

It's hard to explain... but I often cook an entire package of bacon, diced up, freeze it and then scoop out a bit to mix in with my scrambled eggs every morning. I did this for probably about a year and now I just can't stomach it. Mix bacon with anything else- over salad, brussel sprouts, plain, whatever...and believe me, I'm good!! But I had some yesterday mixed with scrambled eggs because I didn't have any thawed sausage and I had to choke them down. I also got really sick one day after eating bacon and eggs in the AM (unrelated to my illness, I had a stomach virus) but you know how when something comes back out the wrong end, you just don't feel the need to eat it anymore??? :wacko: TMI?? (but you asked ;) ) Too bad it didn't happen with pizza or ice cream.

I don't think we get ANY compliant sausage in Australia, almost all of ours have rice flour (for starters, some are <50% meat - eek!).

I buy pure pork mince and add dried sage and hot chilli for a simple and easy sausage mix. I don't measure, I just throw the green stuff around until it's greenish and add as much chilli as I like.
