Another Chicken sausage, this one from Esposito’s in New York.
This is a fine ground sausage with a good amount of fennel and fair amount of heat. This does in fact taste like a Hot Italian Sausage but I don’t think it rises to Esposito’s regular Hot Italian Sausage.
BUT, if you like or prefer chicken sausage and you like Italian sausage, I’m telling you that this is probably the sausage for you. The flavors would hold up very nicely in a pot of sauce or better yet, stuff a couple of these into some good bread with some onions and peppers and you have a healthier sausage sub with no discernible difference in taste with a premium pork italian sausage.
One thing that impresses me about Esposito’s chicken sausages is the ingredients. I’m a firm believer that in order to have a quality product you have to start with quality ingredients and Esposito’s gets that right with their chicken sausages.
While a traditional pork italian hot sausage would be my first choice, I wouldn’t hesitate to order this sausage again.
Ingredients: Chicken, water, salt, fennel, pepper, paprika.
