Turkey Sausage

I started making my own turkey sausage and I must admit it's pretty tasty.   I love it just as it is or with in a whole-wheat sandwich thin with a poached egg & a slice of reduced fat cheddar or swiss cheese.

Turkey Sausage
(serves 6)

*1 pound ground turkey
*3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon dried sage
*1/4 teaspoon mustard seed
*1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
*1 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1 garlic clove, minced
*1 teaspoon onion, minced
*1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)

~In a small bowl, mix ginger, salt, sage, mustard seed, cayenne pepper & black pepper.
~In a medium bowl, mix ground turkey, maple syrup, garlic, onion and spices together until well blended.
~Form turkey into patties.
~Heat skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray (if you don't the sausage will stick to the pan).
~Fry sausage patties until browned on both sides and on longer pink in the middle.
