Homemade Turkey Italian Sausage: Tried

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I decided to try this one today, although I have never made anything resembling sausage before. :) It turned out really well, though I may "up" the spices next time ~ because our taste is a little spicier. You do need to have a rather extensive spice cabinet ~ I did not have anise seed, crushed fennel seed or coriander, but they came out fine.


I shaped it into 8 patties, and cooked it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes. They will be easy to reheat and have for breakfast this week. A little extra shot of protein in the morning.

Thanks again Christine. You are just a recipe machine this morning! I was thinking that we had to use turkey breat for sausage, but I just looked in the book and I guess any ground turkey is CORE? Seems like some ground turkey has an awful lot of fat grams????? This would be great, as I love Italian sausage and can only find 1 ready made kind I will even consider counting points which is Isernio's Chicken Italian sausage @ 1 point ea. It is made in Seattle and may not be widely available. But it is hard to catch it!

Another favorite. Family voted this one a 4 star must repeat! I served it with pinto beans and brown rice that I made in the crock pot with cut up onion and garlic. Yummy combo!! :bcb_up

This sounds yummy! I think Penzey's spice makes their own pre-mixed breakfast sausage seasoning, maybe a little easier then having all the seperate spices.
