We love Hot Italian Sausage but we needed an alternative to high nitrate, preservative containing pre-made sausages. So I developed this recipe.
With Iron Skillet Hot Italian Sausage Seasoning you can turn any ground protein into delicious sausage. You can avoid any of the meats that you are sensitive to and concentrate on the meats that you like best. We have used ground beef, ground lamb, ground elk and ground pork with delectable results. I have also used it to create vegan marinara and other vegetarian foods to give that boost of fennel and nice kick of heat.
Spice level on a scale of 1-5 is a 3
If you do not desire to use meat but still want that hot italian flavour, add to marinara, or soups and let simmer for 20 minutes or so to get the full flavour.
Each Value Pack contains approximately 80 grams (I always err on the generous side) of the seasoning, enough to make a minimum of 8 pounds of sausage. Also comes with a recipe to get you started on your journey to making your own healthy sausage.
The sample size contains enough for one meal for 2-4 people or one pound of sausage.
This does NOT contain nitrates and is meant to be a fresh sausage seasoning, not a dried or brined sausage seasoning. So once you make your sausage seasoned meat, please use right away or freeze for a later date.
