This sausage is great!  It may not taste like good pork sausage, but it is as close as we have tasted so far.  And it costs WAY less smart points.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground 99% fat free turkey
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes adjust based on how fresh yours is and how hot you like it
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon Oregano
Instructions
  1. Combine all of the seasonings (everything except turkey and olive oil) in a small bowl/cup.
  2. Place ground turkey fresh from the refrigerator in a large bowl.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over it and then the seasoning.
  4. Mix well. (Just squeezing it repeatedly with your hand seems to work best, but it does make your hand pretty cold... and messy.)
  5. Form into 2oz patties (optional)

  6. Pan fry on medium heat until it begins to brown. If not making patties, break the sausage up as it cooks to make breakfast crumbles.

Recipe Notes

Results are slightly better if you let it sit in the fridge for an hour or two for flavors to mingle, but we cooked ours right away and it tasted great.

We reduced the olive oil to 1 tsp. You could tell the difference vs 2 tsp, but it wasn't enough of a change to matter.  Either option is still extremely low points.

If you are making crumbles, I recommend this chopper:
