These days, holiday entertaining can be complicated. With allergies, dietary preferences, and health-conscious guests, finding delicious recipes that check all the nutritional boxes can be difficult.
Isernio’s is here to help. With filler-free sausages that comply with Whole 30 guidelines and are naturally gluten-free, along with leaner and lower-calorie chicken sausages, you can offer your guests a high-quality, flavorful dish they will feel good about eating no matter their restrictions. Here are some recipes to try.
LOW FAT AND LOW CALORIE
Our chicken sausage is a great option to lower the fat and calories in any traditional brunch recipe. Using lean chicken, it has 80% less fat than the USDA “standard” for typical pork sausage.
Sausage, Cheese, and Veggie Egg Bake – This veggie-packed recipe has only 200 calories per serving!
Skinny Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole – Low-fat dairy and cottage cheese make this recipe creamy while keeping the calories low. Use Isernio’s chicken breakfast sausage instead of turkey sausage.
KETO AND LOW CARB DIETS
Keto and other low-carb diets are not necessarily interchangeable, but these recipes should work for any guests that are counting carbohydrates.
Sausage & Spinach Crustless Quiche – You won’t even miss the crust with all the flavors in this filling quiche.
Keto Frittata with Sausage – What’s the difference between a quiche and a frittata? A frittata has more eggs, more veggies, and less cream.

WHOLE 30 AND PALEO LIFESTYLE
Whole 30 and Paleo diets are not identical, but there are a lot of similarities. Stick to recipes with fresh, whole ingredients and avoid grains and dairy.
Italian Sausage Breakfast Pepper Bake – This dish offers a beautiful presentation, each perfect portion served in its own bell pepper!

When hosting a holiday brunch, it’s best to keep it simple. Avoid made-to-order omelettes or individual pancakes that will keep you in the kitchen and away from your guests. Instead, serve make-ahead or hands-off dishes that will allow you to enjoy your guests, enjoy your meal, and enjoy the togetherness of the holidays.
