While the concept of sausage is simple, thousands of variations can be found throughout the world. Sausages can be fresh, cured, smoked, or cooked. They are made of beef, pork, veal, chicken, and more. And they can include myriad ingredients, from spices and herbs to fruits, vegetables, and cheeses—and even liquids such as beer, whiskey, or blood. Our “ Sausage in Profile” series aims to introduce you to different types of sausage—their flavor profiles, histories, and uses—from familiar favorites to unique finds.
A Healthier Take on Tradition
Chicken Supremo Italian Sausage is a lower-fat and lower-calorie alternative to traditional Italian Sausages that are often made of pork. However, just because this sausage is healthier for you doesn’t mean that it compromises on flavor. This sausage offers the customary combination of traditional Italian seasoning such as oregano, basil, garlic, and fennel seeds.
Some people believe that chicken sausages are too dry because of the lower fat content. That is not the case with Lobel’s Chicken Supremo. In addition to the savory Italian seasonings, this sausage also contains Parmesan cheese, which keeps the sausage nice and juicy. Each bite offers a mouthful of flavor and pleasing texture.
