I love Piggly Wiggly brand, not too fat, spiced just right, cheap.

I make a mean biscuit & gravy with the pigs brand. Too bad these yankees round here don't have PW.

I bring 20-30 pounds back each time I travel south.

My dad makes his own sausage out of ground turkey, salt, pepper (black & red) and SAGE. It is really good but you need to add (fat)
if you are going to make gravy afterwards.

      Anyone here ever tried Black or White Puddings? (it's a sausage, not a dessert).
      Sorry, here is a link to what I'm talking about:
      I'm getting hungry just thinking about them.

        While in London a few years back, I loved Black pudding, or a good fry up for breakfast.

        Back here in the states, however if I ask about black pudding someone always asks if I mean chocolate pudding.

        Unless I am down in cajun country, then its Boudin for me

              I think I've posted on this before, but we have a local sausage maker -- Holifield Farms in Covington, GA. (35 miles) that makes a decent Regular, an as-good Hot, and a "Mo-Peppa" variety that is flat to die for!
              When I lived in Nashville, around 1986, I found some sausage in an independent super market that was absolutely GREEN! It was made by some little provision company out by Lebanon, TN. or someplace in that direction... it came in a crinkly waxed-paper wrapper and bore the rubber-stamped notation "SUPER SAGE." That was THE BEST commercial sausage I ever ate, and I sure would love to find out who makes it so I can hunt down some more when I manage to venture up that way.
              And it was green even after cooking, too!

                There are so many local sausage makers that it's amazing that you can't turn up something you like. I know of probably 35 brands sold here without resorting to chains, and I'm talking different makers, but just different products.
                I guess I'm spoiled by living in a town that has seven supermarket chains: Bell's (locally-owned), Food Lion, Kroger, Southern Family Markets (formerly Bi-Lo), Ingles, Wal-Mart, Target, and who knows what else. I think we still have one Bi-Lo left, too.
                I'll have to check out Three Tigers Supermarket on North Avenue next to see what amazing stuff they carry.

Almost enough fat, I add just about 2 more tbl's. Nice flavor and mild, made from good cuts. Tastes like sausage and nothing more. I think it's made in Woodland or Woodland Mills Tenn.

                  If I'm not mistaken George Jones sausage is made by Williams Sausage Company. They also make sausage for the Hardee's in our area.

                  My favorite Sausage is Tennessee Pride Sausage made in Madison TN

                    Bradley's country store outside of Tallahassee makes awesome smoked sausage. I used to get it regularly when I lived there. You can order it here:


                    Its the best I've ever had by far. If you like spicy foods, I highly recommend the hot. They are not joking, it really is spicy. All three varieties are delicious.

                      I've an Irish friend that has his pub, Packy's, here in Milwaukee serving a full Irish breakfast on Sunday's. A broiled tomato, Irish bacon, both black and white pudding, baked beans, toast and eggs along with bottles of HP Sauce on the table when combined with a properly poured pint of Guinness and a really great Bloody, might be better served to insomniacs. Delicious but it's a lot of food.
                      The white pudding reminds me some of Usinger's pre-cooked veal brats while the black pudding has a very rich full taste.

                            If you can find them, Thumann's pork (breakfast) sausage links in the natural casing are my favorite b'fast sausages. They're the best I've ever had!
                            If you can't find them in your neck of the woods, Write or call Thumann's and ask where you can get them in your area. They'll provide the name of their local distributor who you can call to find out who stocks them.

                                Twinwillow-thankfully we now have Thumanns here in Wisconsin-where I work. However, I received a gift from Black's this Christmas-regular, garlic and jalapeno sausage...wonderful stuff!

                                    What's the name?  A good friend of mine lives in Appleton and I'll bet he'd like to know about it, and maybe I'll check it out myself when I'm up there next weekend.  Thanks!

                                      Thankfully, I live in an area where lots of folks make their own sausage - whether or not they raise hogs. This sausage making is done in the fall/winter as was traditionally done. This Christmas family members passed along 5 lbs. of a very spicy "homemade" sausage that they received as a gift (they do not eat sausage) and I was happy to take it off their hands. This fall I heard about a co-worker whose dad makes sausage every year with some male friends. I bought 5 lbs. of their breakfast sausage and 5
                                      lbs. of pork ribs.
                                      I'm located where the Neese's company is and purchase that brand and Jimmy Dean at other times of the year. Our local Just Save and small local meat market, Steve's Garden Market in Graham, both make good breakfast sausage.
                                      I like to add sausage to chili, spaghetti sauce, meatloaf/meatballs and other recipes. And around here it is cheaper than ground beef. And yes, I have made my own sausage using pork shoulder, bacon or "streaky lean" (for the fat), Alton Brown's recipe as a start, and my Kitchen Aid food grinder. You really do need to make a small pattie, brown it and taste it to get the seasoning to your liking.
