THRIVE freeze dried sausage crumbles have quickly become one of my favorite items that Shelf Reliance offers. The taste is AMAZING and the ease of use and shelf life can't be beat. The are packed with fully cooked seasoned sausage crumbles that are so good you can munch on them straight out of the can.
I use my sausage crumbles in a variety of dishes:
- 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!
