I havent eaten sausage in months. I love sausage but I really don't want to eat it since I'm trying to eat healthier. You guys have any alternatives or something healthier. I know many people eat boca burgers or something like that to substitute hamburgers, so I figured you might know of something for sausage.
Ahh well, if I have to I'll just avoid it but I would like to have it maybe once a week.
I use the Brown N' Serve Turkey Sausages. They are 110 calories for a serving of 3 links. They dont taste too bad either. They sell them in the frozen section with the regular Brown N' Serve breakfast sausages.
I just found these! They are soooooo good and so much better for you than regular!
I cannot recommend enough a vegan product called Gimme Lean (sausage flavor - it also comes in a ground beef flavor). I served it to my father years ago and he had no idea that it wasn't real sausage. After I told him, he said he liked it anyway! You find it in the refrigerator or freezer section.
It's low in calories, almost no fat, high protein and easy to prepare. To give it more of a genuine sausage "feel," I would brown it in just a touch of olive oil. If you like hot sausage, just add a few dashes of tabasco to it.
There is also a product called Bistro Sensations - a chicken and turkey Sausage - they put out a Smoked Mozzarella, Artichoke and Garlic sausage that is EXCELLENT and is only 110 calories for a large link.
mix , lean mince meat, wholemeal breadcrumbs, grated peppers, grated onion, pinch of salt, some spices... and then shape in a sausage shape, and add the tiniest bit of oil. and cook
Costco has Turkey Pepperoni Sausage and Chicken Turkey Spinach Feta Sausage. They are both great!
I think regular hot dogs & sausages are so gross... however, if I go camping, I like to roast things over the fire. These veggie hot dogs are my go-to brand:
(Edit: D'oh, I just noticed this post was from 2007...)
None that ever tasted good enough to have a second time and certainly not some vegetable substitute. I eat sausage's once in a while ( a few times a month) and when I do I want to full fat version.
Making your own is the best way. You get to control whatt is in them so you needn't miss out!
Making sausages is easy and fun and, if you cook them healthily, you can ENJOY!
