Pens Joyce Haworth from Des Plaines, Illinois, "When the stores in my area stopped carrying our favorite turkey sausage, I was desperate! I went to the library for some books on sausage-making...and was surprised to learn how easy it is! We use this sweet spicy sausage on pizza, in spaghetti sauce, casseroles and breakfast patties."

- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1-1/2 teaspoons fennel seed, crushed
- 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- In a bowl, combine the turkey, garlic powder, fennel seed, sugar, salt, oregano and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Shape into eight patties. Cook in a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray for about 3 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165°. Or crumble turkey into a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray.
