What About Sausages?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what you all use in replace of sausages? We have embarked on our gluten-free diet and it was going kind of ok until my son had sausages. They love sausages in our house. Anyway, there was - ahem -problems!!!... after that. I see that all sausages and bound together using flour. I havent been able to find a gluten-free sausage... even the meat substitutes are bound with flour. Any suggestions anyone?

Thanks again for everything.

We eat Isernio's chicken breakfast sausage and have never had a problem. I get them at Trader Joe's.

There's a local sausage maker around here: Uncle Charlies that's gluten free. (I got the Italian hubby to eat gluten-free pasta, but he wanted the italian sausage!) you may also find a local butcher that makes their own.

In addition to the ones already cited, hormel's Little Sizzlers are gluten-free:

Oscar Meyer "2/3 less fat turkey sausage" is AMAZING. My husband and I ate it before I went gluten-free, so I was happy to see that it is indeed gluten-free. I has a wonderful spicy flavor that is excellent in soups and cajun dishes. And it's ridiculously cheap - $1.68 at walmart for a package of 2 sausages.

I haven't found many sausages that aren't gluten free. I like ... I can't remember the brand! Dang it. I get them at Whole Foods. Trader Joe's has some as well. The only ones I've found with gluten are ones with soy sauce, acutally, though it wouldn't shock me to see ones that have other ingredients that are forbidden.

I think I've had theirs as well, but I usually go with the TJ's own brand if I'm getting it from there. WF's is closer. :(

I have been buying Old Wisconsin beef sticks and pepperoni sticks. Our store now has sausages as well. I buy them because they list Gluten free on the label. Like to support those companies that support us.

Thanks everone. I will certainly have a good look around for any of the brands you mentioned... although as I should have mentioned, I live in Ireland so chances of finding any of them are probably pretty slim. However, seeing as you have all found gluten free sausages of some description, then there must be gluten-free ones here as well. I have looked in the past but they mostly seem to conatin wheatflour which is gluten right? I really appreciate all the help though. Thanks so much. Doest it make things so much easier to know that so many other people are all going through the same thing and have been through the problems and can offer advice. Well, Back to my gluten free kitchen now. Still trying with the bread but its getting better.

Thanks a mill!

Liz.
