Flavorful sausage is a great way to easily add lots of flavors to all sorts of dishes—in sauces, alongside eggs, or in a hash, for instance. Commercial sausages are delicious, but often contain sugar and other high-carb fillers. The recipe below turns out a delicious low-carb Italian style sausage. It gets a hint of sweetness and tons of flavor from toasted fennel seeds.
I love to use this sausage mix as a base for a hearty Italian meat sauce that I serve over zoodles (zucchini noodles) or spaghetti squash. It’s also delicious cooked into patties, as described below, and served alongside eggs, in a low-carb wrap, or as a topping for a low-carb pizza using a cauliflower-based crust. Make a double batch and stash half (uncooked) in the freezer for easy meals later on.
