The Dietitian’s Top Pick: Jimmy Dean® Hearty Turkey Sausage Crumbles

Jimmy Dean® Hearty Turkey Sausage Crumbles #festfoods

Sausage is a staple ingredient for several tasty recipes like pizzas, egg bakes, omelets, pastas, soups and lasagna. Pork sausage adds that mouthwatering flavor to some of our favorite foods, but it also comes with a price of saturated fat and extra calories. I’m so excited to tell you that there is a savory sausage substitute for your traditional pork sausage that is better for you, tastes delicious, and is super convenient! Jimmy Dean® Hearty Turkey Sausage Crumbles taste very similar to pork sausage (I couldn’t tell a difference!), but with 60% less fat and no grease. They’re savory with a little spice and full of flavor. Another big bonus is the time savings. (We could all benefit from a little of that, right? J) These turkey sausage crumbles are fully cooked, so they just require reheating in your recipes. Once open, you can refrigerate and use within 7 days or freeze. Talk about convenience! I’ve used these lean protein packed turkey sausage crumbles in recipes for supreme pizzas, flatbread pizzas using Flatout® Flat Breads, lasagna stuffed zucchini, breakfast egg bakes and fritattas. You won’t believe how yummy these are until you try them for yourself! I promise your family will love them too (including the kids!). What did you think of these tasty turkey sausage crumbles?
