I am an avid pork eater, but a good friend in our dinner party circuit is not. This has revealed to me just how many of my fav recipes involved sausage... When it comes to bacon, I can usually go for beef bacon with good results, but I am at a loss where sausage is concerned.
I haven't been able to find a decent pork sausage substitute. I have yet to find a chicken sausage that's fatty enough--they all seem to have the consistency of processed hot dogs. This is the same reason that faux meat (a la Morningstar Farms and the like) is typically counted out. I usually render the fat to cook with in whatever dish I use sausage.
So, I figure maybe there's an option (or product) that I'm just ignorant of. Anyone have any suggestions/ideas?
