Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Health Twist: Substitute turkey sausage for one or both of the pork sausages, and you will slash fat.
  • Tip 2
    Tip: 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.
