Sweet Italian Turkey & Chicken Sausage Stir-Fry

Sweet Italian Turkey & Chicken Sausage Stir-Fry


Hi There!

So, every Wednesday over the summer, my job hosts a BBQ. All you can eat for $5! I’m talking all the goods: hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork, chicken, chips, watermelon, cookies, etc. Everyone looks forward to BBQ Wednesday’s and not only is there a ton of food, but it becomes a social gathering for co-workers.

The first BBQ came and left and I didn’t bother to go. Then week two rolled around and a big group of my colleagues wanted to attend together so I said “why not?!” and went for a bun-less burger with tons of pickles on top and watermelon on the side. Not too shabby! Today I brought my lunch with me, as I typically do, but it was so nice out that I wanted to enjoy the weather and the company of my co-workers so I took my lunch to the party and I did not even miss all that delicious food staring me in the face!

I used Applegate Farms Sweet Italian Chicken & Turkey Sausage as the base of my stir-fry and then threw in lots of filling veggies and served it on a bed of cauliflower rice. The best part about the Applegate Farms sausage is that it’s Whole30 Approved and has none of the bad stuff that comes with typical store-bought sausage.

Next time you are in a tempting food situation, I highly recommend bringing this recipe along!
