Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage (and 20 Favorite Recipes with Italian Sausage)
There’s no doubt that hot or sweet Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage is one of my favorite ingredients!
This versatile turkey Italian Sausage is one of my first choices to grab from the freezer when I need a quick dinner, and I’ve made so many of my favorite recipes using it. I’m a fan of both the Jenni-O Hot Italian Turkey Sausage and the Jenni-O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage, but if you’re not cooking for kids, the slightly spicy Hot Italian sausage is the one I like best.
Honestly, I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to feature Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage as one of my picks, since I use it so often and have so many recipes that include it, but I’m finally making it one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks and giving it the attention it deserves. Of course this sausage is fantastic with pasta of any type, but I’ve also made a lot of low-carb dishes using it.
Here are 20 of my favorite recipes with Italian Turkey Sausage; I hope you’ll enjoy trying some of them. And if you’ve already made some of these, I’d love to hear in the comments about how you liked them or other ways your family enjoys turkey Italian sausage.
