Favorite Low-Carb Recipes with Italian Sausage (and Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage)

Today I’m talking about why Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage is one of my long time picks, and sharing some favorite recipes with Italian Sausage. This sausage is something I grab from the freezer when I need a quick dinner, and I’ve made so many tasty recipes using it. I’m a fan of both the Jenni-O Hot Italian Turkey Sausage and the Jenni-O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage, and both varieties have ZERO CARBS, which is one reason I love them!

But if you’re not cooking for kids, the slightly spicy Hot Italian sausage is the one I like best. And it’s only fitting that I make Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, since I use it so often and have so many recipes that include it.

Want strictly low-carb recipes with Italian Sausage?

Included here are just a few of my favorite recipes with Italian Turkey Sausage. There are lots of recipes here that are low in carb, but some that have more carbs. If you prefer, just check out Low-Carb and Keto Italian Sausage Recipes for even more low-carb options!

Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage

Why I love Jenni-O Turkey Italian Sausage

It’s mostly the spicy flavor that makes me love this Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage! But it doesn’t hurt that it has zero carbs, and when it goes on sale like this I used to grab four or five packages to stash in the freezer to pull out later and make one of these recipes. But lately I am having a hard time finding this product at the stores near me, so I’ve been grabbing the rolls of Italian sausage instead.

Can you make these recipes with pork Italian sausage?

You can definitely make any of my Italian Sausage recipes using pork Italian sausage if you prefer. Just be aware that there will be more fat. That won’t matter in some recipes, but in things like soup or stew you might want to skim some fat off the top.
