Continuing on the ground turkey theme from the previous post, I will post a recipe today for Turkey Sausage. Now, there are no pictures for this one. I prepared this for Monday morning breakfast, and I wasn't quite alert enough to begin photographing that early.:-) This is a recipe that came from the Weight Watchers Message Boards several years ago.
1 pound ground white meat turkey
1 teaspoon (or less) salt
2 teaspoons sage
1 teaspoon fennel seed
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon black pepper (or less)
1/2 teaspoon white pepper (or less)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne (or less)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
- Combine all together and blend well.
- Refrigerate overnight for meat to absorb flavor of spices. Use as desired: patties, crumbles, etc.
This will give you that taste of sausage without the extra fat. I have even used this mixture in Jambalaya and other recipes that use other sausages. As I have noted above, the amount of spiciness can be controlled, depending on your own personal taste.
Thank you for following along. I especially enjoy your comments.
Next post - More turkey!
