Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Aidell’s Roasted Garlic and Gruyere Cheese Chicken Sausage

Aidell's Roasted Garlic and Gruyere Chicken SausageMy love affair with Costco has been well documented on this blog. I go to Costco nearly every week, and have a list of Costco staples that are always in my kitchen. Of course, like every faithful Costco shopper, I do sample products that are offered, although in recent years I’m becoming more picky about what samples I try. Luckily I wasn’t in a picky mood recently when they were handing out samples of these Aidells Roasted Garlic and Gruyere Cheese Chicken Sausages, made in San Francisco from chicken raised without antibiotics or hormones.

In the past I tried a couple of other versions of the Aidell’s Chicken Sausages, and none of them really excited me. For one thing, many of the sausages contain fruit (which to me is just wrong!) I’m also not a fan of sausage with “non-sausage” ingredients like artichokes, curry, or sun-dried tomatoes. (People with differing opinions, feel free to tell us about your favorite type of Aidell’s sausage in the comments. I’m just telling you about my own sausage prejudices here.)

I first tried the Roasted Garlic and Gruyere Cheese sausages at Costco three weeks ago, and I’ve been loving their garlicy flavor with just a hint of cheese. I made some for dinner for my dad and stepmother, who pronounced them to be very good. Of course sausage isn’t exactly a health food, but they’re low enough in fat, sodium, and cholesterol for an occasional quick dinner. This is definitely a product that’s going to get a permenent spot in my freezer, and these sausages are my latest choice for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, where I rave about products and kitchen items I love. Check the nutrition information below, and if you have a Costco where you live, give them a try.

  1. Scott and Jenna, I’m definitely going to try that variety next!

  2. I LOVELOVELOVE the chicken & apple sausages. We sizzle them up on our George Forman grill. The sweetness carmelizes leaving them salty with a hint of sweetness. YUM!

  3. I’m not familiar with Aidell sausages but I have tried garlic and apple ones sold in my local supermarket in Singapore — they are surprisingly good and not at all “appley” in flavour.

  4. I haven’t found Aidell’s, but last time I was at Costco they offered a very similar chicken sausage as a sample. I was hooked on first bite! They are gouda and apple chicken sausages and are a bit skinnier than the Aidell’s. They freeze well and I’ve used them in all sorts of recipes. The nutritional facts aren’t too bad, either.

  5. I agree, these are delicious! My husband is making them for one dinner this week with sweet potato hash browns.

    Just found your blog through a comment at http://www.beyondelsewhere.ca

  6. Anonymous, glad you liked them. I hope they will be released in more places if it’s true they’re only in four states. Saw them again at my Costco last night!

  7. We just had these sausages grilled, with sauteed onions and spinach, and it was FANTASTIC. Thanks Kalyn!!

  8. Our costco does free tries of aidell’s constantly. These were really good!!! Because I have gestational diabetes (diet basically = south beach) I can’t eat their other varieties! Too many carbs.

  9. I’m with you on not liking fruit in my sausage. Most of their stuff hasn’t excited me but I’m willing to grab a package of these next time I run across them (since Cheese and Sausage work for me and Garlic is just the icing on the cake!)

  10. Wow . . . I haven’t seen this version yet!

  11. I love the ones with apple.

  12. oooh!! I haven’t seen this flavor yet but it sounds fantastic 🙂

  13. PS….forgot to say that it was interesting to see (on Google) that they are only available in four states….
