We like Johnsonville Italian Sausage, but we also need to watch the fat intake. Thus, experiments with ground turkey.

Ingredients

1 pound lean ground turkey
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-1/2 teaspoons fennel seed, crushed
1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Mix the turkey, garlic powder, fennel seed, sugar, salt, oregano and pepper. Cover and hold in the refrigerator 8 hours or more.

If made into patties, cook about 3 minutes or so per side. If crumbling, cook until all pink has disappeared.

Yield: 8 servings. Originally published as Homemade Italian Turkey Sausage in Light & Tasty December/January 2004, p16 Read more: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/homemade-italian-turkey-sausage#ixzz3QiUfact2
