Expert Tips

  • Bulk pork sausage is the raw meat that hasn’t been stuffed into the casing. If you can’t find it, you can buy raw sausages, slit the casing with a knife and remove the meat.
  • Italian sausage can be purchased as sweet or hot; either can be used in this recipe.
  • In place of the Italian sausage, you can use ground beef.
