About this product
New! These raw breakfast sausages are ready to grill or pan fry for your next hearty breakfast (or brunch, lunch, or even dinner). Slightly sweet, with flavors of sage, thyme and fennel. Our artisanal sausages are coarsely ground with whole spices to showcase the complexity of flavors and texture in each bite.
Packed raw in an edible casing, these must be cooked before serving. Keep frozen until use; open packages can be stored, tightly sealed, 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Sausages can be grilled or pan-fried until interior is firm and edges are crisp. Keep the heat low, so that your outsides don't get overly cooked or crisped before the insides are done. For a more tender, jucier and evenly-cooked sausage, boil for 8-10 minutes first; remove from water and pat dry. Sear 1-2 minutes in a hot pan (or on the grill) just to develop the crust. Casing is edible. Meat can also be removed from the casing and used as you would any ground meat.
Beef, Water, Brown Sugar, Salt, Spices, Celery Powder, Cherry Powder. No nitrates or nitrites added except those naturally occurring in celery.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.
Okay, nothing exciting
For almost 20 years my husband has been asking for Kosher breakfast sausages. After several years of asking G&B, we are finally able to order them. YAY!!! So we did and we made them this morning. He was so excited! He grew up eating sausages so this is a big deal breakfast item!! These are my husband's comments: I don't like the casing at all. Sausages shouldn't have casing. It changes the flavor. I don't like how they cooked up in the casing. Please smoosh it all together like you would a burger so there won't be a need for casing. Perhaps like the way you make the Hotdogs. The coarse chopped herbs are too coarse. The flavor should be consistent throughout. Some bites it was way too much fennel and that isn't right. In fact, not just cut all the spices finely, but add less fennel. Coarsely chopping is not artesianal, is lazy like. The products themselves are artesianal as it isn't a mainstream brand, yet. LOVED the thin sliced bacon! Wish that came in larger packs. Had that this morning too. No one in the family really likes the breakfast sausages. So we aren't sure what to do with them. Maybe I can find some recipe to make a stew with them or something...
Ok but not great
First off, to start with the positive. Always find the ease of ordering and website top notch. I have tried these a few times hoping to get it right, but they just aren’t amazing no matter how I prepare them. They have a grit to them that takes away the enjoyment of eating them. I really want an amazing, healthy kosher sausage available and this isn’t it. Hoping the development team sees this and considers going back to the drawing board on what could be a really great product but unfortunately misses the mark. This product is quick to prepare so that’s a definite positive.
They're thicker than the little porkies I grew up with, but the flavor and texture is good! I'm super happy!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
