1 pound sausage, casings removed
2 onions, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/8 teaspoon salt
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Stir in the sausage, onion and garlic powder. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 1 minute or until completely cooked. Drain, reserving the grease.
In a large skillet, heat red pepper flakes over medium heat. Mix in salt and basil. Working in batches, place sausage into the blackened skillet. Cook, turning, until evenly brown. Drain and crumble into little pieces.
