It’s been a busy few months over here at IBIH, and I’ve got lots of exciting things going on behind the scenes that I’ll fill you in on as I can. One thing that I can finally share with you today is that IBIH is the new Blog Ambassador for Jones Dairy Farm, a company that sells all natural sausage, bacon, ham, and other specialty meats.
I have been developing recipes (like these fantastic Mediterranean Pizza Bites, an easy and delicious party appetizer) for the Jones Dairy Farm website for over a year now, so when they recently asked me if I was interesting in taking the next step and officially representing them, I was all over it.
You would probably be surprised at how many requests I turn down from companies asking me to review or giveaway their products here on IBIH. Most of the time it’s because the product is at odds with the low carb, gluten free and/or Paleo recipes that you expect from IBIH, and sometimes I just don’t like the company itself because of its values (or lack of them.)
Jones Dairy Farm meets all of my criteria for a product/company that I can wholeheartedly endorse. Most of their products are certified gluten free, and all of them use high quality all natural ingredients. They are family run and are committed to making as good a product today (or better) as they did when they started over a century ago. To find out more about their products, recipes and company, check out their website, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Pinterest.
As a Jones Dairy Farm Blog Ambassador, I will be posting recipes monthly here on IBIH that feature their wide variety of delicious meats. This month I thought we’d start with one of my personal favorites, the Jones Dairy All Natural Pork Sausage Roll.
A super versatile product, you can purchase it raw in a plastic sleeve in your grocer’s meat case (where you’d typically find bacon and breakfast sausage.)

This easy low carb breakfast recipe is comforting to eat and simple to make. You’re basically throwing everything together and baking it until set. The subtle, herby flavor of the sausage pairs nicely with the salty feta and earthy spinach. You can bake this as a casserole to cut into slices for a crowd, or in muffin tins for a more portable breakfast or snack.

I made both styles this time, and threw the muffins in the freezer where they will keep for up to a month. Now I can just pop them out and nuke them for 30 seconds when I’m in a hurry and need something I can eat quickly.
Mr. Hungry and I both love this recipe and I hope that you will too!

- 12 oz. Jones Dairy Mild Sausage (roll)
- 10 oz pkg of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
- 12 eggs
- ½ cup heavy cream
- ½ cup unsweetened plain almond milk
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- Break up the raw sausage into small pieces and place it in a medium bowl. Squeeze any remaining liquid out of the spinach, and break it up into the same bowl as the sausage. Sprinkle the feta cheese over the mixture and toss lightly until combined. Lightly spread the mixture onto the bottom of a greased 13x9 casserole dish or 18 greased muffin cups.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl beat the eggs, cream, almond milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg together until fully combined. Gently pour into the pan or muffin cups until about ¾ the way full.
- Bake at 375 degrees (F) for 50 minutes (for the casserole) or (30 minutes) for the muffin cups - or until fully set. Serve warm or at room temperature.
