Ground Turkey Sausage

I got some spicy ground turkey sausage from an Amish farm the other day (1 lb.). It's in a long casing.

I have no idea what to do with it. I need some ideas. I'm getting so sick of all my standbys.

I'd like something I could make for dinner. Help!

  1. I should probably add that the turkey is made from all dark meat turkey thighs so there si a good level of fat in it.

    1. I'd say you want to highlight the sausage, so don't want something heavy and saucy. Is it cold up there? How about a soup? I just squeeze the sausage out of the casing and brown it, crumbling it up. Toss a bag of baby spinach on top and let it wilt. Pour in about six cups or so of chicken broth, let it cook for a minute or so, perhaps add some tomatoes if you'd like. Then, stir in a package of your favorite tortellini and cook per the package instructions. It's makes a nice, simple, quick soup that really highlights the few ingredients in it.

      1. I made this awesome soup from Kalyn's Kitchen with turkey sausage - it was wonderful!!!
        She has a lot of ideas for turkey sausage as part of her diet.

        1. Jambalaya or meatballs with pasta.

          1. add it to a stuffing mix with fried onions and stuff a chicken
