I used ground pork this time, but next time I'll lighten it up using ground turkey. If you have leftover sausage mixture, I'd recommend making it into patties and freezing it.
Here's my recipe, which made four good-sized sausage patties:
One pound of ground pork or turkey
1 T. fresh sage, diced
1/2 T. each kosher salt, black pepper, oregano, ground cumin, cinnamon, rosemary, thyme, smoked paprika, garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes
1 egg, slightly beaten
Mix all ingredients using your hands. Shape into patties and pan fry until cooked throughout.
