Is this recipe
As it stands, this recipe has low-carb ingredients, but is not considered completely low carb with the use of potatoes and corn. That said, adding some fresh broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, or green beans instead of the starchy veggies will round out your low-carb dinner.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
Of course. The sausage mixture can be frozen for up to three months, but two months are recommended for the best quality meat. As for vegetables, corn on the cob can be stored for up to six months and this amount of time can be extended if frozen corn is purchased in the store.
However, it is not recommended to freeze potatoes while they are raw due to the high water content they contain. If you plan to freeze your food, it may be best to set aside potatoes until the day you’re cooking or choose another vegetable that can be frozen.
Another option is to store your food in the fridge. With this method, everything in the recipe can be stored in your refrigerator and reheated for up to three days.
