Turkey Sausage

This morning I walked to the grocery store to buy some peaches, which I knew were on sale. While I was there, I found some ground turkey with a $2 off sticker on it, bringing the price to $1.99 for 1 ¼ pounds. This is the best price I have seen on ground turkey in my area. Do any of you use ground turkey? If so, I’m curious, what do you usually pay for it? I have been looking around to find a good price ever since I found a recipe for Turkey Sausage:

Turkey Sausage


-1 lb. ground turkey
-1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
-1/4 t. each cumin, marjoram, pepper, nutmeg, oregano, cayenne pepper, and ginger
-1/2 t. each dried basil, thyme, and sage
-2 t. sea salt
-2 T. whole-grain bread crumbs
-1 egg, lightly beaten
-2 T. butter


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with your hands. Form into patties and sauté in butter.

I made this recipe for lunch. Hubby and I both really liked it! The patties came out moist and flavored just right. I had been avoiding sausage for quite a while because of the MSG and/or nitrates in commercially-prepared sausage, so this was a treat. I think it would also be good crumbled as a pizza topping.
