I am sure we have all compromised - a little bit, here and there. Switched from beef or pork to turkey more often. Cut calories and taste from our normal diets, especially around the beginning of each new year. I had cut a lot of the red meat I used to eat for healthier options. Turkey sausage has always been a favorite of mine. I also enjoy Jenny-O as a brand. I generally eat regular turkey Italian sausage. Jenny-O Turkey Store Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage was quite an experience for me. I like the length of these the most. They easily fit into a hot dog bun perfectly. The taste is amazingly delicious though as well. There is this almost embedded flavor of pure delight in them. They aren't exactly sweet. Meaning, they don't taste sugary. They are seasoned well although, I don't know with what. I use them as a quick lunch meal or I squeeze them out of the link and use them in my pasta sauce or in my lasagna. They also taste delicious on a Foreman grill. I would recommend these for anyone. I am sure I will be a customer for as long as they are available.
