  • Sausage is the bad boy of the culinary world -- a character of questionable repute we sometimes find impossible to resist. The next time you find yourself yearning for a walk on the dark side with one of those greasy, gristly fellows, step out instead with a wholesome designer sausage. Trader Joe's carries a fine selection of four upstanding varieties, all made with chicken, all pre-cooked and free of artificial ingredients and preservatives. We're stuck on the sun-dried-tomato chicken sausage, a flavorful and juicy combination flecked throughout with basil and parsley. It weighs in at only 90 calories per hefty link. Trader Joe's chicken sausages, at $3.49 for a four-pack, are also available in sweet Italian, roasted garlic, and spicy jalapeño.
