There are a lot of recipes that call for Italian sausage to be broken up and mixed into a sauce or other meats or whatever. Here’s a quick easy way to do that.
Ready? Skin the sausage length wise and drop into a hot pan whole. As it starts to cook use your potato masher to break it up. This also works with ground beef. Stop when it’s the consistency you want. Try not to nibble on the sausage.
