½ cup chicken broth
Garlic powder ½ teaspoon
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Cook’s Note: The hot italian sausage makes this dish a little spicy. If you prefer less heat, use mild italian sausage instead.

Did you know you can also cook frozen sausages in the Instant Pot? Simply add sausage to Instant Pot and add water! it’s a major time saver! Perfect to make and chop for a recipe like this sausage & cabbage hash or even for this egg roll in a bowl. I now stock up and keep extras in the freezer (using this Food Saver helps to keep food fresh) for busy nights where I don’t know what to cook.
