Italian Sausage Recipes for Stir Fries

Italian sausage recipes are an excellent way to come up with a quick meal choice. These Italian sausages are versatile and can be used alone or in combination. I always have several packages stored away in my freezer to use when I am pressed for time. My favorites come from Trader Joe’s and are chicken sausages without chemicals and they have a great zing to them. We enjoy them by themselves, in stir fries, or in spaghetti sauces where they have replaced ground beef!

Sausage Quick Meal

Sausage Stir Fry

Sausage stir fry recipes are simple. If you purchase well seasoned choices, no extra sauces or seasonings will be needed. No sauce means fewer calories, which is always a healthy diet habit. Simply pair the sausages with vegetables that seem to go well and a meal is born with a few minutes of vegetable preparation. Healthy fast food at your fingertips! Everyone needs a few of these simple recipes to avoid the call of fast food which is an unhealthy diet habit to engage in!

I thaw them a bit and slice them partially frozen into small slices. They are much easier to slice this way. I stir fry them in a large stainless steel skillet and then remove them to a platter, while I quickly stir fry vegetables to add with them. Then I return them back to the pan and heat the mix through and a quick meal is ready to go. I sometimes pair the meal with a grain like whole wheat couscous or cook pasta separately and add it into the skillet and stir fry it in.
