I've been experimenting with turkey breakfast sausage because my cardiologist wants me to watch my fat and salt intake Tdown: Here's what I've come up with. I think it's pretty good for what it is; while my family would rather have the pork fat laden good stuff, they haven't complained.

INGREDIENTS
o 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
o ½-1 teaspoon salt (depending on taste and Dr’s orders)
o 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
o 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
o *1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
o ½ teaspoon Cajun Spice (I use Tones from Sam’s Club)
o 1 teaspoon olive oil
o 1 pound lean ground turkey (dark and white mix)

DIRECTIONS
1. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
2. Place the turkey in a large bowl and add the mixed spices and olive oil to it. Mix well with your hands.
3. Cover bowl with Saran Wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours 24 is better.
4. Mix again and form into patties
5. Sauté the patties in a large skillet over medium high heat until the meat is no longer pink.

*Clove is a strong spice and causes some folks indigestion problems so experiment with the amount. My family prefers more rather than less.

It sounds pretty good to me. My doctor says the same thing to me.
Were getting pretty use to using ground turkey and ground chicken in recipes.
I wonder how your recipe would be with the ground chicken? I perfer it over the turkey in most things.
