No-Heat Italian Sausage Crumbles
Full of flavor, but not the heat! These Italian Sausage Crumbles are a favorite of kids and adults whether or not they enjoy spicy foods and those who need to avoid nightshade spices, such as peppers and paprika, common ingredients in Italian Sausage. Sprinkle on flatbreads, pizzas, pasta, or veggies for a delicious meal! (Paleo, AIP option, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, nut-free, nightshade-free)
Servings: 8 servings
- 2 pounds ground pork
- 1 drizzle olive oil
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp dried basil
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- salt, to taste
Add all ingredients except salt to a large skillet. Over medium-high heat, using a spoon or spatula, break up meat into small chunks and stir to distribute spices evenly throughout.
Stirring occasionally, cook until browned and cooked all the way through, about 15 minutes on my cooktop. Remove from heat. Enjoy!
AIP option: omit fennel seeds and black pepper.
Leftovers store well in the refrigerator for three days. Sausage crumbles reheat well in microwave or on a skillet on medium heat just until hot. Leftovers freeze beautifully.
