Authentic Homemade Red Chile Enchilada Sauce | The Best Homemade Italian Seasoning

This is a recipe that has been on the blog for quite some time now but I never connected it to my low carb and keto peeps.

It actually was kind of out of sight, out of mind.

Oh, I use it for our sausage, but the old post was actually on a sponsored post and the pics were pretty dang bad, so I just never shared them. Then I got a comment from a reader that made my whole day. That was when I decided that this recipe needed to be shared again with a post of it’s own. 
What did that comment say? 
“Your recipe was a total hit! 
My hubby has always made our breakfast sausage from scratch even grinding our own pork. He always used the same spices from a pack he would buy at a local store he used for decades. Well, we were out of both breakfast sausage and spice pack last Sunday so I offered to try to find a recipe. He wanted to wait until I could order more spices. I found several but when I found yours I had all the ingredients for it, so that was what made the choice! 
We made it almost exactly as you posted, we had several heated moments over how he said it didn’t have this and not enough of that etc. He is old and set in his ways and change is very hard for him. In the end the only thing we changed was we added a touch of water (this was the process with the old mix he would buy) mixed and let it sit in the fridge while we cleaned the barn etc. I had to make a compromise somewhere or he wouldn’t even try it. 
So we got back and ground it and it smelled delish! Once he cooked it and I made eggs etc. I watched closely as he chewed his first bite, almost on edge as if his liking it or not would make or break me. LOL. 
He put his fork down when he was finished eating everything on his dang plate and looked at me and said, “simply better than any breakfast sausage he had ever made with the old spice mix, absolutely better and it will now be our new sausage spice. ” I ’bout fell out my chair. 
So, there you have it. Your recipe is a perfect simple mix of quality spices in the right ratio. Perfect to change an old man’s mind about what is good. Great job and many thanks! Thanks again I will be checking our more of your recipes!”
That is the best review I could ever hope for!!

Is Country Breakfast Sausage really OK for keto? I can’t speak for store-bought sausage as many brands use high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which adds carbs. But this recipe is 100% keto friendly with just .14 net carbs per serving!
Can this Keto Country Breakfast Sausage be made ahead of time? If you want to make it and store it in the refrigerator it will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 days. It will keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
Can I add fat to the Keto Country Breakfast Sausage mixture? Yes, you can add 1/4 cup of fat (bacon grease, beef, pork, chicken, or duck fat) if you prefer a fattier sausage or need drippings to make gravy with.

Last thoughts about Homemade Keto Country Breakfast Sausage

I try to do as much meal prep as possible to make my life easier through the month. Hubby likes to make breakfast on the weekends so I will prep some of this sausage to have it available to him when he cooks. 
There are two ways I prep this.
If it is close to the weekend (just a couple days away) I will make a batch and pop it into the fridge.
For later in the month I will form it into patties and freezer them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and then place the frozen patties in a ziplock bag in the freezer. That way he can put them in the fridge the night before and be ready to go in the morning. 
No muss no fuss!
If I am really thinking ahead, or ground pork goes on sale, I will freeze the patties as I mentioned above, but then I will use my vacuum sealer to keep them from getting any freezer burn.
