Stuffed spicy Italian sausage
Get a taste of heat with this meaty treat! Stuffed spicy Italian sausage is an easy, and fast meal that’s guaranteed to leave you full and wanting more. You can eat stuffed spicy Italian sausage by itself or like a sandwich. I like mine with a hoagie roll with the bell peppers and onion laying down with the hot Italian sausage on top with just a little bit of marinara! That’s that Yum Yum Get Ya Sum in every bite.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s keto friendly, it’s got great flavor, and it’s great for meal prepping. You can cook these on a Sunday and have lunch for a week no problem. You can also customize this to your liking by adding some mushrooms, or other favorite vegetables to the pan. You can also experiment with different cheeses to really make it your own. Try using a ricotta mixture or a nice gouda instead of cream cheese and see what ya think!
