I was just at whole foods looking for some "paleo" breakfast sausages, couldn't find much though. Any good brands out there that you buy? If so, where? Preferably beef.
My local butcher makes up these Paleo sausages just for me! Last time I went for organic grass-fed beef, capsicum and shallots - but I'm thinking pork and apple next time.
I have to get a fairly big batch (as for some reason he doesn't think he'd sell the rest to anyone else?!) - but I split them up and freeze them so it's no problem.
Worth asking a local butcher if they'll do the same!
What kinda sick mutha would make sausage out of a damn cow?
On a serious note... If I'm shopping at a normal non-organic grocery store, and I don't have any homemade sausage (which we mostly eat at my home), then I look for Jones Natural pork sausage. All of their products have been certified Gluten-Free, and are endorsed by the CDF and and CSA (Celiac organizations). This is my "Link Of Choice": http://www.jonesdairyfarm.com/All-Natural-Pork-Sausage-Hearty-Links-12-oz--P92C46.aspx
If I did a beef breakfast sausage, I probably wouldn't season it like I season pork breakfast sausage (sage, chili flake, all spice, nutmeg), but would try to make a totally different sausage, as those spices might still be good - but just not as good as pork would be.
In fact, it looks like I'm not the only one - US Wellness only sells Italian and Polish beef sausages on their site as far as I can see... http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Categories.bok?category=Grassland+Beef%3ASausage%2C+Bologna+%26+Organ+Sausages
I've been getting sausages from my CSA lately, but when I need more I usually get Jones Dairy Farm sausages from my local non-Whole Foods grocery store. Sold frozen, no nitrites, no MSG. They have beef varieties but I always get pork.
