I discovered this brand while shopping at my local Costco, when I was checking packages of sausages looking for those without sugars or starches, and that were gluten-free.
The first thing that caught my eye was that these are fully cooked (time saver), gluten free as well as without added nitrates or nitrites. I next checked the ingredients list:
Turkey Raised Without Antibiotics, Roasted White Onions, Roasted Green Pepper.
Contains Less Than 2% of the Following:
Salt, Spices (Including Fennel and Red Pepper), Parsley, Paprika.
In a Natural Pork Casing.
Serving size is 1 link. **have you noticed that this isn’t a given with many specialty sausages? I’ve picked up packages containing 4 sausages to notice the servings per package are 8! I don’t know about you, but 1/2 of a sausage isn’t very satisfying or filling.

I use 5th Street Grill Italian Turkey Sausage with Onions & Peppers for quick, easy and satisfying meals. I will make a main meal using 2-3 of these, along with salad, vegetable and a carb of some sort, or have just 1 for my breakfast on a day I am not eating eggs.
The flavor is very pleasant, I can taste the fennel (one of my favorite parts of any Italian themed sausage), and the onions and peppers merely add to the flavor versus dominating. It is a mild, pleasant sausage with good texture.
Serving suggestion: For a nice brunch, dice 1 sausage, 1 scallion, sauted in 1/2 tsp. of no-salt butter, then scramble with 2 eggs. (If not using a non-stick pan, you may need to add another 1/2 tsp. of butter just before you add the eggs to scramble.)
