Entertaining some friends who don't eat pork.

Prefer something that doesn't use factory meat.

    Both Nat's Early Bite and Nat's West (both in the Valley) serve excellent house-made turkey breakfast sausage.

        Thanks for all the recommendations. Breakfast sausages are usually cased in thinner lamb casing so I don't have to worry about that.

          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."

            Love Huntington Meats! Great Shop with very helpful and skilled butchers. All they fresh made sausages are natural and no nitrates.
            There is also Money Saver Meats on Florence near Crenshaw, nothing but Chicken and Turkey sausages, check their hours and days.

              Not gourmet, but Sprouts makes both chicken and pork sausages in-house. They have different flavors everyday.

                  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.

                    Try Lindy & Grundy on Fairfax, McCallls on Hillhurst, or in the Farmers Market (3rd & Fairfax - see their website) there are two great butchers and two great poultry shops that might do it for you - I think you would be happy with any of these fine shops

                      Try Jeff's Gourmet on Pico Blvd. They are kosher, but everyone seems to love them. All sausages are made by Jeff's, nothng from a factory.
