No, you will not get anything like English sausage, but there are some other options that are good, and that you can work around.
I would recommend a curry sausage from Braedt, we use it to make pigs in a blanket(the curry flavor is not THAT strong). You can get them at Wong or most likely other supermarkets. For toad in the hole we used chorizo parrillero, and it was not bad at all. Chorizo de lomo would be a bit tastier, since it is made from steak.
We also had pan con chorizo, with a chorizo norteño at Otto Kunz (it was at CC El Trigal, but not sure if it still exists), my husband loved it; he said it was the closest he has had to a sausage from home (Eng).
Finally, there is a butcher on Simón Salguero (limit Miraflores and Surco), it's like a strip of shops; the place is Argentinean, but you can look for sausages there, Argies have very good chorizos. You can also try Braedt Haus in Monterrico (on La Encalda), or search for any of those Otto Kunz shops.
