What’s this? Another heart-healthy recipe? Why, yes! As much as I love decadent entrees and ooey-gooey desserts, it’s not practical to eat like that every day. Truth is, I love to eat as much as I love to cook, so keeping snacks such as these spicy turkey sausage patties on hand helps keep me in line. Having baggies of them in the fridge makes for an easy, lean-protein snack any time of day–and it really does stave off hunger.
This is a recipe adapted from one that comes with the Six Week Body Makeover. The sausage is low in sodium and in fat, yet packed with lots of flavor. These sausage patties take virtually no time to throw together, and they can be eaten like this, or sometimes we make larger patties and serve them like turkey burgers. Either way, the recipe is sure to be a hit.
In a large bowl, mix together the chicken broth with all the seasonings.
Add the ground turkey and stir until thoroughly blended. Let this rest for a few minutes.
Divide the mixture into 10 patties. Spray a non-stick skillet with a little cooking spray, then over medium-high heat, brown the patties on each side.
