I happen to like sausage. I like the flavor, not the calories. I am not particularly attached to the pork and grease either. So I was delighted to find a turkey sausage recipe that lets me have sausage, but just with lean, ground turkey.
This recipe works well for adding to spaghetti sauce, lasagna, pizza, scrambled eggs, fried zucchini and tomatoes, biscuits & gravy, etc. And of course you can shape it into patties for breakfast.
It is from a cookbook called Lickity Split Meals by Zonya Foco, a health personality that has a lot of reasonable, good advice about a healthy lifestyle based on exercise and eating smart, but not dieting.
You can get her Homemade Turkey Sausage recipe online for ground turkey in the amounts of 40 oz. or 120 oz. I buy ground turkey from Sam’s Club in 80 oz., so here is the recipe I’ve been following. As I review her recipe, I see I must have figured some things out incorrectly, but I’ve enjoyed the recipe, so here it is.
Actually, I think she may have changed her recipe (I got it out of the library a while back). Obviously it isn’t chemistry, so adjust as you prefer. Next time I’m going to try it with more applesauce than listed below.
