Homemade Turkey Sausage: Heart-healthy
Prep time:10 minutes
1 package Ground Turkey
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Cut 4 inch squares of wax paper - approximately 16 squares
Mix all ingredients together very thoroughly by hand. Roll mixture into approximately 2 inch balls. Place each ball in the center of a wax paper square. Cover the ball with another piece of wax paper and flatten into a patty. Stack the patties 4 high and be sure to cover the top patty with wax paper square.
Put the patties in a resealable freezer bag and freeze.
To cook: Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat. Unwrap frozen patties (no need to thaw) and place in skillet. Cook patties 6 minutes on each side until no longer pink inside. (Do not overcook or they will be dry).
Serve with multigrain muffin, egg whites, and fat-free American cheese for a healthy egg sandwich.
