Poultry sausage--pork casing

AdamL | Apr 28, 200411:08 PM     19

My wife doesn't eat red meat or pork. The other day I picked up a package of chicken & turkey sausage from TJ's. I was feeling mighty pleased with myself for finding a new alternative to throw on the grill--until I took a closer look at the label (last time I do THAT), and saw that the sausage was made with a "natural pork casing." So much for that idea.
It got me thinking--am I going to find the same issue with all sausage-esque products? We've often ordered chicken-apple sausage from a breakfast menu or bought seafood sausage to grill @ home--and I've always just assumed that there was no other meat involved. Guess that was silly, huh? I just never really gave it a second thought. Now that I have...any alternatives for poultry or seafood sausages that are otherwise meatless?
