As you walk the path toward healthier lifestyles and healthier meals, one of the first things people tend to leave out is meat, like bacon, pork, and sausage! For those who truly enjoy the flavors and textures of sausage, that’s a big taste deficit. Thankfully, not all of those are really that unhealthy if prepared properly. And, we can use other meats to fill in a healthier option in some recipes. Our Food Editor has come to your rescue this week by finding and editing a bit to provide you with a great recipe that should fit the bill nicely, leaving out the preservatives and MSG found in almost every commercial sausage. Hope you enjoy!
