Sausage


I’m sure somewhere in Baja you can buy regular Gringo style breakfast sausage, I have just never found it. We have always taken ours down with us but it seems they are getting a little more fussy about food items nowadays. We do a lot of our own meat processing here in Arizona so last trip down we took down our favorite seasoning for pork sausage “Old Plantaion” from L&M and thought maybe I could find somebody to grind some pork. We stopped to shop at the Soriano’s just South of La Paz and lo and behold they had ground pork in the meat case, slapped it all on the counter hand mixed it and we had 10 pounds ready to use.
Not quite as good as Les and Blancas homemade Polish sausage but still pretty good.

Costco in Cabo has small frozen American style breakfast sausages in a bag.
Anybody know of an Italian sausage source in Los Cabos?

Thanks for the nice words regarding Les's sausages....he is getting ready to retire the breakfast part of the B&B in 2018 and stick with a hotel only.

He will continue making the sausages however. He does both Polish and English Bangers. If you come and visit, I bet he would pull them out!

pacsur's question is a good one - a great I-talian sausage is ohhh sooo good. In little Italy in San Diego, you can watch them putting the sausage into skins.

Funny thing about sausage. At the hotel El Cortez in San Felipe whenever I ordered sausage for breakfast they served me a hot dog. It happened more than once and I use to do it just to get a laugh from my friends. It's been a couple of years so they may have changed.

In 1977 my friends and I went into San Felipe for breakfast, ordered sausage and eggs, and it was hot dog franks! Big laugh for Mexican breakfast sausage.

Saul's Market in Mulege. He makes both Italian and breakfast sausage himself and it's pretty damn good.

Sausage Maker .com has everything you need to make Italian sausage including the casings which need to be refrigerated after opening but last for months. We usually buy a spice mix and add extra of what we like, yes more sage and crushed red peppers. They have several varieties of Italian.

I used to make a lot of sausage after hunting season in Alaska. In addition to the usual linked product, I would buy bologna sized casings from a local butcher supply house.

Lean wild game was blended with beef and/or pork fat, and I would add soy protein as well. That allowed me to reduce the fat content and still have a moist, smooth texture, even through the smoking process.

not much help but Saul's grocery in Mulege has breakfast and Italian sausage in the cooler made for him by a local butcher, not all the time so it's a treat when we find it... and well made.....

I thought I had also seen some at either Sam's club or Mega Mart in LaPaz... been awhile since there and the memory fades...
Don't remember if we checked Chedreaui in LaPaz....

[Edited on 11-11-2017 by Russ]

I have personally seen Saul making his own sausage, both Italian and breakfast. His herbs are grown in his little garden along the walkway by his store.

THERE IS NONE BETTER. Tubs in the cooler in the back-right of the store. At least, used to be. Wunnerful.

Could be he does it himself, we were always told that it was made across the street at a butcher shop. Doesn't matter either way as it is really good when it's available...

In La Paz, Walmart used to carry the small, link-style breakfast sausage (Farmer John's ? brand or similar name), but I haven't seen it there in months.

There are 2 vendors at the Tuesday and Saturday farmers market who sell their home-made sausage.

As for the Mega in La Paz, it is no more - it has become a Soriana.

When we make the pork breakfast sausage we put it in a large zip lock roll it out flat about 1/2” thick, then we use the edge of something thin but not sharp to put square score marks in it. We freeze it and when ready to use it we break off how much you need, kinda like Wendys. No mess and the rest goes back in the freezer, why make it round when it’s going to end up flat?

It was breakfast dish, in English, and they also had chorizo (Mexican sausage) and eggs. This was 1977 so give them a pass. There is the word 'wini' now used, but there are Hot Dogs with bacon sold, so the word Hot Dog is used and not sausage at the stands. Anyway it was a funny moment 40 years ago I thought I would share.
