How To Cook Italian Sausage

Cooking Italian sausage is a straightforward process that yields delicious and versatile results. Here's a simple method:

Preparation: Start by selecting your preferred type of Italian sausage, whether it's sweet, hot, mild, or a combination. You can use links or loose sausage meat, depending on your recipe or preference.

Searing: Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat and add a small amount of oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking. Once the pan is hot, add the Italian sausage links or loose meat.

Cooking: Allow the sausage to cook undisturbed for a few minutes on one side until it starts to brown. Use tongs to flip the sausages occasionally to ensure even cooking.

Internal Temperature: Cook the sausages until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C) for safety. This typically takes about 10-15 minutes for links and slightly less for loose meat.

Serve: Once fully cooked, remove the Italian sausage from the pan and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy them on their own, sliced and added to pasta dishes, sandwiches, pizzas, or any recipe that calls for Italian sausage.
