Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat an 8-in. cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned (165 degrees), stirring occasionally to break sausage into small crumbles. Drain sausage on paper towels; set aside. Remove skillet from heat; discard drippings in skillet.
