Healthy No Salt Sausage
- 3/4 pound ground meat (originally pork, but turkey works great)
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
Obviously, you can adjust to taste.
This can be either browned as loose meat or shaped into patties.
Mom got this from the dialysis clinic before she had her transplant, but we still use it all the time. One of our favorite dinners is rice (1 1/2 cups cooked), canned tomatoes (28-ounce can), and 1 recipe of this, and we usually add a chopped onion and chopped bell pepper. We used to use plain hamburger but this is much better. I think it would also be great in breakfast tacos.
It's not as strong as real sausage but it does add a nice flavor, which it really helps if you're trying to reduce fat and are using very lean ground meats.
