Homemade Italian Sausage

Thanks to a big boost from the Spice House's Italian Sausage Seasoning - I have created homemade Italian sausage for a fraction of the regular price! As it regularily seels for around $3.49 lb. here, sometimes even higher - this was one expense I was looking to cut down on, especially with the winter months coming - got to love those big pasta dishes of pure comfort food!

1 lb. ground chicken or beef
1 lb. ground turkey
(Or 2 lbs. ground pork to replace what's listed above)
3 T. Italian sausage seasoning
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 T. basil
2 T. minced garlic

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add onion and bell pepper with 1 tsp. oil. Cook until onions are translucent and pepper is tender.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Crumble mixture roughly into the pan, cook til meat is no longer pink.

Yields = 4-8 meals (6 servings each)

Great for use in:

Pasta sauce
Potato dishes
With eggs
For Sammies - leave uncrumbled
