Recipe: Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Diet  restrictions (Basically limited to poultry, fish, fruits, and veggies), led me to create this recipe so I can have a more enjoyable breakfast experience....

Turkey Breakfast Sausage

2.5 lb ground turkey
1 tsp ginger
1 3/4 t salt
1 1/14 tsp rubbed sage
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp anise seed
1 tsp fennel seed

Combine spices, mix thoroughly into ground turkey.

Spread into an 8" square baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees (F) to an internal temp of 160 degrees (F).

Drain grease (unless you want the extra calories, in which case, let it sit, and the turkey will soak most of it back up).

Cool sufficiently to handle, remove from pan, cut in half, then cut the halves into 1/2 to 3/4 inch strips (so your dimensions will be approx 4"x 1.5" x .5").

Freeze for later use. (I place a strip of wax paper between each, to prevent stick-age during freezing, and then wrap in butcher paper.

Reheat "links" in a frying pan and enjoy.
