(NEW RECIPE BELOW) You’ve probably noticed I rarely do sponsored posts. I get asked pretty much daily to try products but for me to share something with all of you, I have to really like it. Well let me tell you, this sponsored post is all about al fresco fully cooked chicken sausages and I couldn’t wait to share them with you. I’m in LOVE!!! Get ready to try some super yummy, heathy chicken sausages. Even though they are so low in calories and fat, you’d never guess. They are amazingly tender and juicy. I tried the Sweet Apple with Pure Vermont Maple Syrup and Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage. Both are quite different in taste and both are equally flavorful!
In addition to their fabulous taste, I know you’ll love that al fresco chicken sausages are all natural, contain no artificial ingredients, MSG, preservatives, are gluten-free and have 70% less fat than the leading sausage brands! And did I say extremely delicious? al fresco chicken sausages have no preservatives, nitrites, or artificial ingredients, which should make all you moms feel good about feeding these chicken sausages to your kids.
In 1994, al fresco was born out of the idea, that “good” and “good for you” shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. Today, they’re the #1 chicken sausage brand in the U.S., with over 40 exciting, flavorful, gourmet varieties of chicken products and all with 70% less fat than pork sausage and free of gluten, nitrites, nitrates, preservatives and artificial ingredients. Most large supermarkets carry them.

Although I’m featuring al fresco’s fully cooked chicken sausages, they have over two-dozen gourmet, flavorful, healthy chicken products, ranging from Wild Blueberry Breakfast Chicken Sausage to fully cooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage to Tomato & Basil Chicken Meatballs. Happily, each has 70% less fat and 35% less sodium than pork products, and they’re all gluten free. Check out their delicious product line: http://alfrescoallnatural.com/
You’ll greatly reduce the sodium from the sauerkraut by pouring into a colander and rinsing under cold water. One rinsed well, be sure to drain well. Or buy Low-sodium sauerkraut. It may cut the total sodium by half, but check the label because the amount of sodium varies depending on the brand.
