Especially For Aimee!
JeanCats: Jeanetta’s Personal Recipe: Maple Breakfast Sausage Patties or Sausages
As you all know I have to find LOW FAT and NO to LOW sugar alternatives. When my father was very ill and dying, I made all his meals using crock pot.
1 lb of ground turkey
Add a bit of Kitchen Bouquet Gravy Brown to crumbled ground meat before cooking. About 1/4 tsp to 1 /2 tsp
1/8 to 1/4 tsp of garlic powder
Maple extract 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp (more if you prefer)
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp fennel powder (Fennel seeds, 1/2 tsp Anise liquid flavoring or powder or 5 Chinese Spice can be substituted)
Optional: ½ tsp of Splenda from envelope
Option: Leave out the Maple for a traditional sausage.
Add pepper and salt to taste.
Add any other spice such as chile powder or 21 salute
Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of beef bouillon powder granules
Increase fennel or anise flavorings for a stronger flavor
Sweet Italian sausage:
Omit Maple: Increase fennel/anise flavor by at least two, increase garlic powder to 1/2 tsp add 1/2 to 1 tsp of either Italian herb seasoning (increase for stronger flavor).
Hot Italian sausage:
Omit Maple: : Increase fennel/anise flavor by at least two, increase garlic powder to 1/2 tsp add 1/2 tsp Italian herb seasoning , ADD 1 tsp chile flakes, ¼ chile powder
Optional: use fresh garlic
Optional: use 1 to 2 tsp of olive oil and count points.
Mix by hand well like you do a meatloaf. If you need moisture just add water or a bit more liquid KB.
Divide mixture in to 8 equal parts, roll each into a ball then flatten into a pattie: 8 patties Adjust points accordingly. 2 ounces of meat per pattie.
Fry in a pan with non-stick cooking spray (PAM), until done. Flip in the middle of cooking. Try frying a pinch of meat mixture to taste and adjust spices.
Serve with real eggs or Egg Beaters. Try it in the AIMEE or Jean Cat Egg McMuffin .
Makes a great low, fat low point breakfast and they can be made in advance then frozen if individually wrapped in plastic wrap then in a Ziplock with all air squeezed out. To use heat in microwave on 50% power for about 2 minutes and check; continue reheating until ready. May also heat in skillet.
Add fine bread crumbs to mixture or dredge/coat in fine bread crumbs. Adjust points. Then fry.
Roll into a cigar shaped form for a sausage instead of patty.
Add a small dash of cardamom.
Add a small amount of olive oil if you prefer a fattier sausage, adjust points.
I do hope that you like this recipe Aimee.
I made it especially for you in mind after reading the following link:
Please let me know what you think. Ratios have to be played with as you make the sausages. That is why I do a dime size patty test for flavor before I form the sausages.
Recall the purpose is low salt and low fat. While brands exist they are rarely low salt.

Notice the last icon is for sleep! That's where I will be after this post!!
Thanks JeanCat! I love sausage of all kinds, so I'll have to give these a try. :)
Be sure to try a dime sized mixture to adjust seasonings.
Also try adding a bit of thyme if you want a Jimmy Dean like flavor.
