All before 7:30 this morning I had the dishes unloaded and loaded, a weeks worth of turkey breakfast sausage baking in the oven (hopefully a weeks worth, everyone is addicted to it,) and dinner (paleo chili) going in the slow cooker. This is all with me waking up sick with a cold this morning. I should wake up sick more often — I get things done!
The turkey breakfast sausage is super easy to make, I’m only disappointed that I didn’t start making it the moment I discovered Penzey’s and memorized their catalog.
It took the trip to Stanford for me to finally get my hands on their breakfast sausage seasoning, I was a week and a half into primal eating. I had just read through Elana’s new paleo cookbook, liked the sound of her turkey breakfast sausage… but didn’t want all the work of gathering the seasonings.
With Penzey’s Breakfast Sausage Seasoning blend, it’s as easy as measure (1lb meat = 1+tbs seasoning,) mix, form patties, and bake. I form a large golfball sized portion then smash it to make the patties. With lightly greased glass baking dishes, I bake the patties at 400* for 25 minutes. It’s ridiculously easy. No nasty additives like store-bought sausage.
Sorry, no nice picture of the end result… they’re hiding in the fridge and freezer so I wont be tempted to eat more. Everyone who has tried theses sausages has loved them, my in-laws even placed an order for me to make them some. Seriously — I’m going to have to buy the 1lb bag of seasoning next time.
