Turkey Sausage


1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (2:1; dark:white meat)
1/4 cup brandy
1 tablespoon fresh thyme — chopped fine OR 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces bacon
6 egg whites
2 feet sausage casings


For this sausage, the turkey should be 2 parts dark meat to 1 part white meat. Ground turkey from the supermarket works well in this recipe. Combine brandy, thyme cloves, onion, pepper and salt in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook 3 minutes, then scrape into the bowl of a food processor. Add the bacon and puree until smooth. Place the mixture in a mixing bowl, add the ground turkey and egg whites and mix well. Stuff the mixture into casings or form into patties. Grill or cook sausages and serve immediately.
