Others call for kielbasa or andouille. Kielbasa has a different flavor from breakfast sausage and andouille is a bit more spicy.

You can make a lot of sausage substitutions. Have hot links if you love spice. A lot of vegan or vegetarian sausage substitutes will work in these dishes.

You could probably use chorizo in just about any of those. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a leaner pork sausage and packs a lot of flavor and has a chunkier texture than pork sausage.
