This is quickly becoming one of our favorites! You can also use ground chicken instead for a change. This recipe is 80 Day Obsession friendly.
1 lb. raw 93% lean ground turkey
2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1½ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
1 tsp. finely chopped fresh sage
1 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
1 dash ground juniper berries
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. ice cold water
1 tsp. olive oil
1. Combine turkey, maple syrup, salt, sage, rosemary, pepper, juniper, nutmeg, and water in a large mixing bowl; mix with clean hands until just blended. Set aside. Cook’s Note: Try not to overmix as that will make the sausage tough; knead just enough to combine ingredients into a uniform, homogenous mixture.
2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Add turkey mixture; cook, stirring frequently to break turkey into crumblesized pieces, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until turkey is no longer pink.
• If possible, use dark amber maple syrup, which can be found at upscale
markets or online.
• If you can’t find juniper berries at your local store, check online.
• This sausage can also be sautéed in patties. Store cooked sausage in the
refrigerator for up to 5 days.
• Sausage can be held raw, in the refrigerator, for 3 days, or in the freezer
for up to 3 months.
