Whip up a big bowl of this sausage and freeze it in bulk or patties in batches sized right for your family. There is nothing like the smell of sizzling sausage to warm up a cold morning. This recipe is lower in fat than pork sausage, and you can fine-tune the ingredients to your family's tastes, such as using substitutes for the sugar or salt. If your family likes mild sausage, reduce the black pepper and go very easy on the cayenne. But if they like it hot, use the full measure of pepper, freshly ground, and kick up the cayenne to as much as 1/2-teaspoon.
6 pounds low-fat ground turkey
1/3-cup dried sage, crumbled
1/4-cup salt (or equivalent)
2 tablespoons brown sugar (or equivalent)
2 tablespoons black pepper
1/8- to 1/4-teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix everything together well and divide into batches. Freeze raw, or cook immediately and then cool and freeze.
