Are there any delicous non-pork breakfast sausges to be had in Los Angeles?
Entertaining some friends who don't eat pork.
Prefer something that doesn't use factory meat.
Bristol Farms makes many non pork fresh made sausages including their Chicken Apple/Cinnamon Link: With a sage seasoning base accented by green apples and cinnamon.
Or their Turkey Cranberry Sausage: Made with fresh California turkey, cornbread stuffing, sun dried cranberries, and sage seasoning.
In the original farmers market try Huntington Meats. Here is a list of their in house made non-pork sausages.
Cajun-Hot Hot Hot
Basil & Tomato
Tropical Thunder w/Papaya
Hot Spicy Lamb
*CUSTOM ORDER SAUSAGES*
Chicken Lemon & Herb
Chicken Jamacan Mango
Pann's Chicken Sausage
Not gourmet, but Sprouts makes both chicken and pork sausages in-house. They have different flavors everyday.
Just watch out, if your friends are purists about their objections to pork; LOTS of "non-pork" sausages are in fact in pork casings. Aidell's organic chicken andouille, for example:
":ORGANIC CHICKEN, SODIUM LACTATE (FROM BEETS), SEA SALT, ORGANIC GARLIC, DRIED SUGAR CANE SYRUP, ORGANIC SPICES, ORGANIC PAPRIKA, CELERY POWDER, AND ORGANIC DEHYDRATED ONION, IN A NATURAL PORK CASING."
Thanks for all the recommendations. Breakfast sausages are usually cased in thinner lamb casing so I don't have to worry about that.
Both Nat's Early Bite and Nat's West (both in the Valley) serve excellent house-made turkey breakfast sausage.
