Those of you that recognize this mounted skyward cow will know where we are. We, actually Ms. Goofy is in Lockeford California at Lockeford Meats. Lockeford Meats is famous for their delicious and reasonably priced sausage. This fact is reinforced by the lines to get in the store on the weekends. Ms. Goofy was attending a dog show near by and had to stop by, and I am glad she did.
Ms. Goofy loves the "Dakota Sausage' evident by this pile of sausage tubes. It is a mild sausage which is a combination of pork and turkey. It is one of my favorites too. This sausage is mild enough to be enjoyed in multiple dishes. She also knows what I like and bought several sausages with the title Bacon Sausage.
This sausage was a little darker in color than the Dakota. We fried the sausage in a cast iron pan until browned and internal temperature reached 150 degrees. It was juicy and tender when bit into. It had a smoky flavor as bacon would. I believe I noticed a sort of breakfast sausage type of spice. It too was mellow and mild like the Dakota. Overall did it taste like bacon? I would answer; sort of. What it was, was a very yummy and delicious sausage that I would not hesitate buying again. Meanwhile we have a few more Dakota Sausages to consume.
