Homemade Turkey Sausage

(8 servings)

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup onion - finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried apples - crumbled or finely chopped (can be replaced by 1/2 cup fresh apple - but not as good)
  • 1 egg white - beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh parsley - finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 dash ground red pepper
  • cooking spray
Lightly coat a 10-inch skillet with coating spray. Set aside.

Place three or 4 paper towels on another plate and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the onion, apples, egg white, oats, parsley and all spices. Add the ground turkey and mix well.

Shape mixture into eight 2-inch wide patties. Preheat the skillet over medium heat. Place patties in skillet. Cook over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once until sausage is browned and completely done.

Transfer patties to paper towel-lined plate to pat of excess grease. Transfer to serving plates and enjoy.

Way better and fresher tasting than the turkey sausage you buy in those crazy tubes.
