  • Sausage?

    Has anyone found any ready made sausage they can eat? Pork, chicken, whatever....I miss it! Or have a good recipe for making it at home?

    I can eat mild sausage in moderation and haven't noticed any problems. I would rather eat hot sausage but I don't dare push my luck. I used to work in a breakfast restaurant where many people ordered turkey sausage and they loved it, guess me and my southern girl ways just can't get used to that though!

    Please take my experience very cautiously as I don't find many foods that I have problems with. I am ufortunatley not very diet sensitive, I say unfortunatley because if I were I could do more to help myself!!

    Hopefully some others will post their experiences as well so you can get a good idea of how many sausage bothers.

    Good luck!!

      I don't know where you are in the country, but here in Michigan I have found the store brand of sausage at Meijer is alright. There was also one brand at Walmart that I did alright with. You really have to read the ingredients though. All of the major brands like Jimmy Dean, Bob Evans, etc. all contain MSG.

        My bladder doesn't seem to like store bought sausages and I'm not sure if it's the nitrite/nitrate thing or the artificial smoke flavor many use. Maybe both.

        I make my own sausages, and while it takes some time, I make a good supply to freeze which then lasts for months. Except for breakfast sausage, -that I often just mix up as needed.

        Most of the spices that go into them are listed as bladder friendly, with the exception of black pepper (try it category). If you let me know what type of sausages you're interested in I'll see if I have a good recipe for it to share.

          I buy sausage patties and sausage links at Costco. It has very few ingredients and most importantly for me no nitrates.

            Thanks for the replies!!

            Sandra, I completely understand, although I'm definitely a fan of turkey burgers, so I'm not sure I'd have a problem with turkey sausage. I'm not a big fan of spicy, so hot sausage isn't really something I need to try to duplicate (luckily!).

            Vicki, I'm just thinking generally anything. Sausage for pizza, breakfast sausage, sausage links, etc. I'm completely willing to make my own, I just never have before so it's hard for me to look at a recipe and see what would work if I left out problem ingredients. I would really appreciate any recipes you have. If you wouldn't mind, you could email them to me at tanica.h at gmail dot com.

            GayleK, I'll check out Costco! It would be very useful to be able to shop for myself AND my husband at the same time; this whole making separate meals for dinner almost every night is exhausting with all the dishes involved!

            Surprisedx, that's what I've noticed and really didn't want to try it. My bladder has been feeling good and it's hard to experiment!!

              I sent you an email. An easy pork sausage recipe, but very good! -With none of the store bought additives!
