Well you all inspired me to make my own! I found this turkey sausage recipe out on the interweb somewhere! I did cook them on a Foreman grill instead of the frying pan, they came out much better and I didn't have to use extra oil or butter, instead used PAM spray to make them not stick. They didn't seem to cook evenly enough for me in a frying pan.
I made 1oz patties out of these then I whipped up a batch of Finn's IP Fluffy Potato Rolls
, made 6 of them instead of 5. When the rolls were done I let them cool just a bit until they unpuffed a bit, then made 3 little sausage biscuits with cheese out of them! Each muffin was a side, it seemed impossible to cut these rolls in half. I took 1 slice of veggie cheese and quartered it, used 3 squares and saved the last for the next day! These are my new weekend breakfast! They are awesome!
1 lb ground turkey
1½ teaspoon seasoning salt or smoked salt (I used our IP Salt)
1½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of clove
pinch of red pepper flakes
pinch of cayenne (optional)
1 teaspoon sage
½ - 1 tablespoon of SF Syrup
½ -1 teaspoon fennel seed
1 teaspoon thyme
1 Tablespoon olive oil (optional)
Place ground turkey in a large bowl; set aside.
Mix together spices.
Add spices to ground turkey and mix until spices are evenly distributed throughout the meat.
Mix in olive oil if using. (this adds extra moisture)
Shape turkey sausage into small 1 oz patties.
Fry up a small sample patty to test out the seasonings. Adjust the seasoning if needed.
Heat a bit of olive oil and I can't believe its not butter in a large skillet on medium heat.
Place sausages into the hot skillet and cook until until browned and the middle is no longer pink.
Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the patty.
Be careful not to overcook or the sausages will be dry in texture.
Let sausage drain on paper towels.
Serve or freeze.
