Sausage for turkey stuffing

I live in New York. For years I've used Parks Hot 'n Sagey Sausage for my stuffing. This year I have not seen it in any supermarket. It comes in a one pound roll, the covering is orange. Has anyone seen it? Or can anyone suggest a substitute?

  1. Bob Evans sage sausage should be fine to use.

            I have one thawed ready for breakfast in the morning!

        We also use Bob Evans sage. Note that in our area, the local supermarket has stopped stocking the B.E. sage sausage except around T-giving, so we now buy a few and freeze them to have throughout the year

      3. Any sagey breakfast sausage will do...but I like to make my own in order to control the fact content. All you need is ground pork, salt, pepper, sage, and a pinch of sugar. If you have it you can also add some savory. Really couldn't be simpler!

        1. For thanksgiving I splurge and order sausage from Harrington's of Vermont. Their sausage has just the right spicing for turkey stuffing.

            Me too! I have been using Harrington's sausage for my stuffing for many years. Great stuff. comes in 1 pound packages- loose sausage meat.

            I live in Virginia and I too am also looking for the Parks Hot n' Sagey Sausage in my area but I think I can help you though. The Shop-Rite and Pathway grocery stores in Jersey City carry that Parks sausage that we're looking for.

            God Bless

            1. Can you get the similar tube of Jimmy Dean Hot sausage? It's their sage sausage with hot pepper.

                I second the Jimmy Dean suggestion - I think it's great in stuffing.

                  My husband will only eat Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage, I'm buying a roll for my stuffing this year.
