Jones turkey sausage links are handy when you are trying to watch your weight but still want the taste of sausage in your favorite breakfast dishes or pizza. You may lose weight eating light sausage as opposed to eating out at breakfast restaurants with fattening pork sausage or sausage gravies.
You may serve the Jones turkey sausage with other gluten-free convenience meals such as Amy’s Tofu Scramble or Pamela’s gluten-free pancakes. Or top Amy’s Rice Crust pizza with the Jones turkey sausage links cut into bite size pieces to save time.

Here are a few ideas for making healthier light sausage recipes using Jones Turkey Sausage links:
No. 1: Egg and sausage casserole: Use Jones Turkey sausage for your egg and sausage casserole recipes. I chop up the links and use them as I would in recipes that call for pork sausage. For example, whip together four eggs, 1/2 cup lactose-free or regular milk, 1/2 tsp. dry mustard, 1/2 piece of chopped white bread, chopped onions, chopped green and or red peppers. Pour into a lightly greased casserole dish. Sprinkle chopped Jones turkey sausage and cheddar cheese on top before baking.
No. 2: Sausage pizza: Use Jones Turkey sausage chopped into bite size pieces on top of homemade pizza. If you want to be super-healthy, lightly sprinkle olive oil on a non-stick fry pan, heat up an Ezekiel brand tortilla. Top with pizza sauce, oregano, mozzarella or Havarti cheese. Top with Jones Turkey sausage and other vegetable such as onions, green peppers. Bake in the oven until cheese melts.
No. 3: Jambalaya: Use Jones Turkey sausage to replace smoked sausage in your favorite Jambalaya recipe. Use Cajun spices, along with canned chopped tomatoes, brown or white rice, green peppers and onions. Add shrimp toward the end since shrimp can become leathery if overcooked.
Jones turkey sausage links are tasty. I love to use them in light sausage recipes because I still enjoy the flavor, without the fat and extra calories. Even if you aren’t trying to stay on a gluten-free diet or trying to lose weight, the Jones turkey sausage links are hearty enough for any appetite.
