(Turkey Breakfast Sausage Version)
(Now if you can find in your supermarket Turkey Italian Sausage, follow instructions above.  If you can only find the breakfast sausage version, add these extra ingredients below.)

1 lb Turkey Breakfast Sausage (casings removed, if any)

1 Cup Mama’s Pancake Mix

2 Heaping Cups of Cheddar Cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp. Parsley
2 tsp. Thyme
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
1/4 tsp. Paprika
2 pinches of Cayenne Pepper or Red Pepper
2 Heaping Cups Cheddar Cheese
3 Green Onions, sliced thin
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil, for added moisture


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.

In a bowl, add sausage, spices, cheese, and onions.  Massage all ingredients evenly into sausage.  Add 1-2 Tbsp. of olive oil necessary to make the sausage ball slightly moist.  Pinch off about 1 1/2 inch of sausage pieces and roll into balls.  Place on baking sheet 1/2 inch apart.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the foil over onto bowl or plate and gently peal away each sausage ball. Place on serving plate.  SERVE WARM!


For the Turkey Sausage you can make a tasty dipping sauce by mixing 1 cup BBQ sauce with 1 cup Cranberry Sauce and simmer until combined and reduced to a nice smooth sauce.  For the Italian Sausage just a Honey BBQ sauce is great!
