What would be an equivalent alternative and measurement to the tomato powder if I chose not to use it?

Are you trying to use tomato sauce? If so, you could use about 15 oz.

I'm new to this! To say the least! What is the process for hydrating the FD Sausage?

To re-hydrate the sausage, add 1 cup of boiling water to ½ cup of Freeze Dried Sausage. Stir once, cover and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain off excess water and use the sausage as you would use fresh pork sausage.
