    Default Substitute for ham sausage

    Hi all:

    I used to make a dish that used ham sausage. I haven't made it in a
    while, and was disappointed to find out that none of my local grocery
    stores carry ham sausage any longer. I looked online, and all I could
    find was Smithfield ham sausage that has Paula Dean's name on it and
    is quite expensive. Other than that, I haven't been able to find it
    anywhere. What would be a good substitute?

    Thanks in advance,
    John.

    Ground ham and seasonings?
    I love ground ham sauteed with onions in butter and use it in a pastry
    dough.
    What is your recipe for? If you shared it we might have a better idea of
    a good sub.

    I can't put my hands on the exact recipe at the moment, but it was
    basically a combination of ham sausage, kidney beans and corn, cooked
    in a crock pot for a few hours and served over rice. It was called
    Rapido in the cook book I got it from.

    Regards,
    John.

    The Smithfield ham sausage is pretty good. I haven't seen it in a
    while so I bought 2 1-lb rolls of Hillshire Farms (?) for $1.00/ea a
    couple weeks ago. A little fattier than the Smithfield stuff, but
    still pretty damn good.

    I wouldn't worry about Paula, except that the price must have
    gone up. It could have been Sandra Lee.

    For a substitute, just grind up some 'Bacon Ends and Pieces' ($4 for
    3lbs) and mix it with ground pork.

    Sorry, but IMO ham sausage doesn't sound very good - even if it's
    Smithfield. What's the recipe do you used it in?

    Hard to tell without seeing the recipe, but what about regular pork
    sausage?

    These days, there are hundreds of artisan sausages available both in-
    store and mail-order, most - infinitely better than the old
    "ham" (actually, mostly starch) supermarket sausages. Aidelle's quite
    decent. I would also recommend almost any authentic recent immigrant
    German, Russian or Polish sausage factories, even Saag's is not too
    bad. Which state do you live in?

    I used pork sausage by mistake one time. It was far too spicy.

    Plain ground pork, maybe.

    More like blached bacon would work better. Ham is smoked & cured, bacon
    is smoked & cured. The blanching would reduce the saltiness of the bacon.
