Low Carb Mozzarella Stuffed Italian Sausage

I am sure I have said this before, but I just love a good Low Carb meal. Especially if I can make it without Mark knowing its low carb. He doesn’t hate low carb meals, he just thinks I’m always trying to make him healthy, men I know. I just prefer a low carb meal because I feel so much better after eating it, I don’t have that bloated feeling and I actually feel full.

This was a recipe I found on Pinterest, but like every other recipe I create, it becomes mine because of the way I change things up. It’s pretty rare that I ever follow a recipe, to a T. I very much love a lot of flavor, so most of my recipe require more steps, because I want you to experience the full flavor. It may seem like a lot sometimes, but it’s totally worth it.

Below I will have a quick step-by-step and pictures showing how I created this meal. This was so delicious and easy to make and the kicker, it was cheap to make as well. At the very bottom will be the full recipe, be sure to check it out. Thanks for reading!

Ingredient List

  • Italian Sauage / Brats
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Onions
  • Desired Italian Seasonings

How Do I Put This Together?

This is a sort of challenging part, but really not that bad. Tedious may be a better word to describe. It just takes some patients and handy knife skills.
Lay your sausages out flat and take the tip of your knife or kitchen shears and cut an opening in each sausage, straight down the center. Don’t go all the way through, at least 3/4 of the way so you can stuff the cheese.

Slice your mozzarella cheese into thin pieces, thin enough to stuff into the sausage. I could have probably went a little thicker, but it worked plenty good for me. Stuff each sausage with as much cheese as you prefer and then squeeze the sausage around the cheese. Set aside for the time being.

Take our your baking dish and pour a small amount of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the pan. Place your stuffed sausages on top of the sauce and pour the remained of the sauce on top.

Here is where my favorite part comes in. Season your sauce to your liking, I chose to use oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. You can use whatever you would like, or you can skip this step. Take the remainder of your cheese and shred it up and toss that on top of the sauce. Add some onion on top of that and get ready for the oven.

Notes: You can certainly leave out the onions if you’re not a fan. Or add in some mushrooms if you want, that would be really good.

Cook at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until your sausages reach the internal temperature of 165 degrees. Serve with your favorite plate of vegetables or garlic bread. This pairs really well with Brussel Sprouts and garlic bread, coming from experience.
