Sausages make a good meat alternative and can add considerable variety to a menu. Sausages also provide a different meat texture and cooking style.  Sausages come in a range of flavours, chicken, beef, and lamb. Plain or with herbs, spices, garlic and curry added.  Sausages don’t have to be stuffed into a casing, the range in size and shape can be cured and fermented like salami. They can be served so many ways with vegetables, salads, pasta, and rice and eaten slapped between pieces of bread with onions and tomato sauce. Let’s not forget how good a sausage taste on a BBQ.
