At first, I wasn’t eager to try Sausage Crumbles. The concept seemed strange — crunchy pieces of sausage. What an odd idea! However, it turns out using freeze-dried sausage crumbles is easy and tasty.

My First Experience Learning How To Use Sausage Crumbles

The first time I tried Sausage Crumbles, after being convinced by my Thrive Life friend, Holly, was on pizza. So I rehydrated a handful of the Crumbles in warm water, drained them, squeezed out the excess water in a paper towel, and then sprinkled them over my pizza.

My family loved the flavor and said there was no difference between this sausage and what I would have bought from the store.

A nice added feature is that the sausage is already cooked, leaving one less greasy stovetop and skillet to deal with!

Since then, I’ve stocked up on several cans of Sausage Crumbles and gave a can as a gift to my prepper-minded nephew one year! The flavor is versatile and goes well with Italian dishes, breakfast eggs-and-sausage recipes, and more.

And it turns out they are good to eat right out of the can if you want something crunchy and salty!

Here are just a few ways you can put these Crumbles to work in your kitchen. Be sure to rehydrate first, unless otherwise noted.

Creative Ways To Use Sausage Crumbles

These are just a few ways to use this versatile freeze-dried item:

  1. Add to bread or cornbread stuffing.
  2. Combine with white gravy for a biscuits & gravy meal.
  3. Add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of rehydrated Crumbles to meatloaf or meatball mixture for something more flavorful.
  4. Throw a handful into any soup. The Crumbles don’t need rehydration first as long as the soup contains enough liquid.

  6. Add to any pasta meal — baked ziti, for example.
  7. Include in a potato dish, such as potatoes au gratin or hash browns.
  8. Use as a filling for omelets or mix in with scrambled eggs.
  9. Add to corn chowder.
  10. Include some Crumbles in the meat mixture filling for tacos or burritos.

  14. Take a Pantry Can of Sausage Crumbles on your next camping, hunting, or backpack trip for a very lightweight, ready-to-eat protein source.
  15. Combine with eggs and cheese for a yummy breakfast burrito filling.
