ISO Sausage Meat

I want to buy some sausage meat Tuesday near Pape and Danforth.

I'll be forced to buy some Italian sausages if there is none available I suppose.

      have you been to Ellas on Pape, just south of Danforth? They should have what you want. They are also very helpful. They make sausages there, so I bet they have what you want.

        Thanks. I didn't know what Ellas sold so I'll now try there. Lot of prework for a few Scotch eggs::))

          It seems you live near Pape and Danforth from your original post, so you should visit Ellas and see what they have. It's a full service butcher shop and they have even aged T-bones for me in the cooler for over 30 days. I'd just go in and they'd cut a few steaks of the piece with my name on it.

            Thanks foodyDudey. I don't live near Pape and Danforth but pass by a few times a week. I have a visit to Ellas on my to do list. I recall a restaurant on the north side of Danforth near the Palace with almost the same name.

    2. In a pinch, you can get a tray of fresh sausage meat from Johnsonville brand, in markets such as Metro or Food Basics. The quality is is good, somewhat bland.

        Thanks jayt90. That was my fall back position. I have some Chinese chilli sauce and garlic powder to counteract the blandness. Hope to get there before the guessed at rain starts.

      2. I've purchased straight up sausage meat from Royal Beef on Danforth east of Coxwell.

          As it turns out I found Johnson's sausage meat at ValuMart. Last place I expected to find it.

          Now to make the Scotch Eggs.
