Turkey breakfast sausage
This is a fun and easy kid-friendly cooking project for your weekend breakfast. The best part about making this sausage is that you know exactly what goes into it. This is my mom's recipe. One of my earliest memories of my mom cooking is her making batches of this sausage and freezing it. I used 96% fat-free turkey, but she uses pork. Which is delicious.
Herbed Breakfast Sausage
Note: I use a food processor to chop the onions, garlic, and herbs, then I combine that with the ground pork (or turkey and egg white), salt, and chilis. Also, wet your hands before forming the patties to keep them from sticking to your fingers.
1 pound lean ground turkey or pork
1 egg white (omit if you are using pork)
1/4-1/2 yellow onion depending on what you like
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
8-10 chopped fresh sage leaves
1 tsp salt
crushed red chilis to taste
Combine all ingredients, form into 6 patties and pan-fry or grill (over medium heat), or bake until cooked through. (I baked the turkey sausage for about 30 minutes on a lightly-oiled foil-lined pan at 325º.)
