I’m a big fan of the new turkey trend, turkey sausages, turkey jerky and ground turkey. I’m not a big breakfast sausage fan thought but when I saw turkey breakfast sausages at Costco I decided to try them out. Today I’m reviewing the Costco Smokey River Meat Company Fully Cooked Turkey Breakfast Sausage.

I’ve had breakfast sausages a few times in my life and these actually taste similar to pork breakfast sausages I’ve had in the past. I really enjoyed how these tasted, they’re super flavorful while being a bit leaner tasting but not dry. Definitely a little salty but not overly so. If you told me these were pork breakfast sausages I definitely wouldn’t argue with you.

I paid $15.99 Canadian for box of 50 sausages (1.2 kg) not exactly the cheapest but I wouldn’t say these are overpriced.


These are fully cooked so that’s perfect for an easy, convenient breakfast treat! You can choose to microwave them for 1.5 to 2 minutes or heat them in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes. These can be paired with eggs, pancakes, and waffles or even just consumed alone!

These have no MSG, no fillers and no preservatives and are also gluten free! I really love that they’re gluten-free. Two sausages is 100 calories, seven grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, one gram of sugar, eight grams of protein and 210 mg of sodium. The ingredients list is short and sweet which I love.

  1. I do really like them, but also I thought it was just me but I guess not, but it does seem that there’s a small tiny bone here and there which is annoying and possibly dangerous.

  2. Horrible. My dog wouldn’t eat it. They are so gamey, the taste of adrenaline. I do not recommend them and we threw out the rest

  3. I noticed the ingredient change. Turkey, cauliflower .. cauliflower. This new recipe is quite tasty. Cauliflower added is pleasant and surprisingly good.

  4. I’ve bought these a few times but I’ve also noticed a deterioration in quality. The bone comments, I relate with as I also find there’s been a weird crunch. They’re rubbery and my stomach is SOOO upset and I get sick every time I eat them, despite the ingredients list being free of my food allergens. Very concerning. I bought them months ago and still have over half the pack in my freezer.

  5. I recently purchased a box of these turkey sausages and am not impressed. They are rubbery and even my cat won’t eat them. Will not be purchasing these again.

  6. I found a literal piece of white plastic in my Smokey river meat company turkey sausage. Is this an issue anyone has experienced before?

  7. Liked the taste and convenience of these but developed an allergic reaction/skin rash consistently after eating them. Reading the other reviews of pieces of bone found in them is concerning and I am wondering if this is why I am reacting to them or some other unknown spice. Will no longer be buying these.

  8. We recently bought these turkey sausages from Costco and was very disappointment when we found small pieces of bone in some of the sausages. My son almost broke his tooth. I don’t know how they are still selling these. Buyer beware!!

  9. We used to buy these all of the time and loved them. Now I find they are filled with chunks of bone – it is really gross. I’m going to return them.

  10. Starting buying these and loved the convenience of them in the morning. Unfortunately, I will not be purchasing them anymore as there are chunks of something (bone, cartilage something unknown) that is inedible. They are so hard that you can’t even bite through it. I will be returning them.

  11. We tried the sausages for the first time and found them to be very bland and quite rubbery. We will definitely not be buying them again and I plan on taking the ones back that are left

  12. Yummy! I had these for the first time I’ve been to turkey sausages. They are tasty but in a number of the sausages I noticed very tiny bones which is a little disconcerting.

  13. My husband and I have recently started buying this sausage. We appreciated learning it was GF, no MSG etc.
    However we will not be buying this in the future as we’ve been spitting out bits of bone.
    Not happy with that.
    The bar code reads 6 85201 67917 2
    We bought this at Costco yesterday, but will return today.
    Please be aware that this is a deterrant for consumers.
