    Deli-News, where I go for breakfast every Sunday morning here in Dallas, serves large sausages. They are like, smaller knockwurst in size. The browned crispy natural casing gives way to luscious breakfast sausage when cut.
    I know the owner gets most of his products from the NY area and I'm sure the sausages are an "imported" item as well. I love them. Sometimes, when he is out of smoked sturgeon, I'll order eggs with a couple of those wonderful
    sausages. They are unlike any I've had elsewhere.
    I'll be there this Sunday for brunch and I will try to find out where he gets his breakfast sausage from and report back.

    Hi, "leethebard". The brand name of the sausages I wrote about in my post above is, "Thumann's"
    Look up, "breakfast meats and sausage" and you will find what you are looking for-I think.
    If you "Google" Thumann's you will find they are quite well known all over. Good luck.

    BTW, they just happen to be located in, New Jersey!

    May I make a suggestion?
    During our annual visit to Las Vegas we usually take in one buffet breakfast at the Orleans Casino and they always have a jumbo pork link sausage available that I would estimate is the same diameter as a 1/4 hot dog but shorter in length (3" perhaps).

    The meat is fine ground & mildly seasoned.

    You might want to call one of the many institutional food distributors located in Las Vegas (Sysco or another) and they could probably give you a brand.

    You might also visit a local butcher shop and ask if they can do up a batch of their standard link size meat but using a larger diameter casing. They might be accomodating for an order of 10# or more

    You have just described the Thumann's brand sausage I mentioned above. Exactly.

    Hey Bard...I grew up on the thick ones just like you. Out west we have a chain of convience stores called Maverick. They grill a big breakfast sausage every day on their hot dog griller machine. It is pretty good sausage considering the west is not known for their contribution to good pork eating. Every now and then I ask and they will sell me some raw ones to take home and cook myself.

    My boss goes back and forth between the large and smaller sizes on his breakfast buffet in the other restaurant.
    I prefer the little ones.. They fit on my toast much better.
    But he has them on a regular basis..

    At our local Whole Foods they sell a Irish breakfast sausage called Rashers. This might be what your looking for.

    Stop it! Stop it! The brand of sausage he is describing is, "Thumann's"! Guy's, trust me on this one.
    I wouldn't steer you wrong. http://www.thumanns.com/products_sausage.html

    Thurmanns has good meats but try the Hillshire Farms beef smoked sausage. The come in a package, wrapped around to the shape of an oval. Fried on a griddle or in a skillet, they crisp up on the outside. I cut pieces about 1.5 to 2'' long and then butterfly them down the middle, fry on both sides, slap on some toast with a couple eggs fried well and that's breakfast.

    I just bought a package of Jimmy Dean's pre-cooked turkey sausage patties. Very good! And, much lower in fat and calories than pork sausage patties. They keep in the fridge not in the freezer. Tastes just like pork sausage.
    I even snack on them.
