Turkey Sage Sausage Patties

I like to eat smart—starting with this homemade turkey sausage. If you like garlic, try substituting it for the sage. —Janice Wuertzer, Dubuque, Iowa

    I loved this recipe with just a few changes. I used ground pork instead of turkey to suit my taste. I also used poultry seasoning instead of the sage. It does have sage in it but not as strong. Also, just a splash of oil was needed in my non-stick skillet. I made these as part of a Sunday brunch and they were everyone's favorite!

    They were okay. Tasted too much like plain turkey.

    I really didn't like the mix of spices at all. Something tasted bitter and overall I found the patties blah!

    We found this recipe to be just what we needed to cut fat and pork from our diet. The spices seemed to be the right combination. I would cut down on fennel simply because I don't appreciate the taste of it as much. It might have been better had a taken more time to crush it. We will make this recipe again!
