Turkey Sausage

I've always wanted to make sausage, but without the piggy!  You can buy low-fat sausage, but you're still talking about 8 to 9 grams of fat per serving and that's for Turkey or Chicken Sausage.  

So, I took it upon myself to make some Italian Turkey Sausage that hardly has a gram of fat, and it's absolutely delicious!  All you need is some Ground Turkey, a few spices and TA-DA!  You have the perfect sausage!  Oh, but the possibilities are endless!

Makes 10 servings, 2oz. Each


20 oz. Pkg. Ground Turkey (Honeysuckle 99% Fat Free)
1 tbsp Parsley Flakes
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Basil
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt 

- Medium Bowl
- Breville Mixer or KitchenAid Mixer (optional)

Place all ingredients in a bowl or mixer and knead really well.  You want the turkey to absorb all those spices.  If using your hand, this should take you about 3 minutes.  If using the mixer about 1 -1/2 minutes.  The turkey should come out sticky and gooey like sausage. 

Breakfast Sausage, Burgers, Meatballs, Lasagna, and much, much more!!! 

I like to make my sausage a day or two before I use it, because the turkey has absorbed the spices and the flavor is much more robust.  I store them in the freezer sometimes in a Gladware plastic container like this one.
