In many places, most sausages and ground sausage sold at butchers and stores contains something called “meal” to keep the sausage moist and give it texture. Unfortunately, meal is spices and filler (either wheat or rice-based) and not something we want to eat on a low-carb keto diet.

The recipe makes Sweet Italian Sausage. To make a spicy mix, add 2 teaspoons of Red Pepper Flakes, and you’ll have Hot Italian Sausage.

This Homemade Italian Sausage recipe makes 450g/1lb. We’ve left the nutritional information to include the entire recipe – 1 serving is 450g/1lb.
