Turkey sausage

10 Jul

Here is a recipe for turkey sausage that can be used as a breakfast patty,

or in all kinds of recipes where sausage is needed (lasagne, stuffing. ect.)

*always clean surfaces, utensils and hands before and after handling ground meat*

Turkey Sausage (makes 1 1/2 lbs)

1 lb.  regular ground turkey or chicken ( do NOT use extra-lean or breast meat)
1 Tbl. grated onion
1 Tbl olive oil
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 Tbl dried parsley
1/8 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup grated apple ( optional, see note following recipe)

Mix all ingredients together and let sit for a least an hour before using.
To use as breakfast sausage, shape into patties. Fry in pan with a bit of oil. Cook over medium heat until brown on one side and turn only once. Do not press patties with spatula, or poke with knife to test doneness or sausage will become dry. Press with finger. If firm, sausage is done. Don’t cook longer than five minutes total time, or it will be dry.

To use in other recipes, don’t shape into patties. Cook in pan with a bit of oil until halfway done, remove from pan and chill before adding it to your recipe in place of cooked pork sausage.

Note- for Sweet Turkey Apple sausage, omit pepper flakes and add 1/4 cup peeled  and grated golden delicious, red delicious or any other sweet apple.

Try the sausage for breakfast this weekend
