Costco Sabatino’s Paleo Organic Chicken Sausage Review

These paleo sausages from Costco are gluten-free, organic, have no nitrites or nitrates, are keto-friendly and have a wholesome, simple ingredients list. That’s everything you can ask for in a sausage, right? Wrong. The flavor and taste of these sausages outweigh all the other positives.

I’ve reviewed a ton of sausages from Costco over the years like the Amylu Paleo Chicken Sausages, Smokey River Meat Company Turkey Breakfast Sausage, Greenfield Natural Meat Co. Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage Rounds, Connie’s Kitchen Feta and Spinach Chicken Sausages, Kirkland Signature Beef Polish Sausages, Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage and the Kirkland Signature Brats.

Ready to try!


I had high hopes for these sausages but they’re just okay, not amazing. The sausages have a very strong basil flavor and are also quite salty.

I barbecued the sausages but wish I’d got a little more of a sear on them. Although the sausages are very moist and not dry, I find the texture of the sausage a bit slimy which turns me off of them.

It looks better than it tasted.

Not only do these have a strong basil flavor, they’re also very peppery and garlicy. Because the flavors are so intense these sausages aren’t exactly versatile and won’t pair with everything.

The sausages cost $14.89 USD and there are 12 links in the pack, two packs of six sausages. After trying them, I feel that’s overpriced and you’re most likely paying for the fact the package says these are paleo.

The sausages are already fully-cooked so you can heat them by barbecuing, microwaving or cooking in a pan on the stovetop. The sausages need to be kept refrigerated or frozen if you’re not going to use them by the best before date.

These aren’t the kind of sausages you serve in a bun with ketchup and mustard. They work best on their own with some sides like rice, potato salad, roasted vegetables or baked sweet potatoes. I don’t think kids would like these at all because of how strong the flavors are.

One sausage contains 160 calories, nine grams of fat, 590 milligrams of sodium, one gram of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber, zero grams of sugar and 16 grams of protein.

All sausages seem to be high in sodium so I’m not really shocked by the 590 milligrams of sodium. These are very low in carbs which makes them keto-friendly on top of being paleo.

Nutrition facts.


Most of the ingredients are organic and there isn’t any gluten, dairy or soy in the ingredients list. If you’re curious about the sausage casing, it’s made of chicken collagen The ingredients list is stellar and makes me wish I liked the taste of these sausages more.

Walk on by!

I have no interest in finishing my pack, I love the simple, organic ingredients but the flavors in these sausages are just off.
