Shelf Reliance Featured Product: Freeze Dried Sausage Crumbles
- Spaghetti Sauce
- Pizza Topping
When using sausage crumbles I don’t always re-hydrate them. It depends on what I am cooking and the taste I want to go for. When making omelettes for example I will just toss them in with the eggs and they are good to go. You can also toss them into a soup or casserole without rehydration, just add a little extra water.
2 1/2 cups of sausage crumbles equal about a pound of fresh cooked sausage. There are approximately 4.8 lbs of sausage in a #10 can and just under 2 lbs in a pantry can. Once a can is opened the shelf life is 1 year although would never last that long in our house. Since it is pre cooked and oh so yummy I am always looking for recipes to incorporate it in. My favorite perk?……… You don’t have to worry about a greasy pan. It sure makes a home cooked meal a breeze!
