I got this basic recipe from another site but changed it a little for my family. The original recipe called for orange juice as the liquid instead of milk. I also added the vanilla as we think it gives it a nice flavor.
A family tradition in our home. We like to serve a special breakfast in our home to honour a birthday or some other special occasion. We always have these on Christmas morning too! Strawberries or cherry pie filling and whip cream are some of our favourite toppings.
I combined different spices to achieve what tastes almost as good, if not better than regular sausage. Be sure to use regular ground turkey (not ground turkey breast, which is too lean so it doesn't have enough moisture). UPDATE: After all the positive reviews, I decided to submit this to Taste of Home's Light & Tasty and they published it in the Dec/Jan 2008 issue. It's also in the Light & Tasty Annual Recipes 2008 Cookbook.
I started experimenting with breakfast ideas for my husband who is too busy at work to sit down for long to eat. The seasonings, cheese, meat and bread I have listed are just suggestions (my husband's preference). Add veggies if you like! The possibilities are endless!
If you want to cut down on the meat and save some money, replace part of the sausage with textured vegetable protein. It will take on the flavor of the sausage and make it a little lower in fat. Just follow the directions on the TVP package to prepare. TVP is usually in the health food section at the store.
A great grab'n'go breakfast muffin recipe born from the happy accident of getting maple syrup on your bacon after piling your brunch plate a little too full! (And yes, I'm speaking from experience!!) I often add more bacon than the recipe calls for and you can use whatever pancake syrup you like or have on hand.
Great for that run in the morning breakfast. You can also take frozen burritos with you when going camping. Just place the bag of frozen burritos into the ice chest, and by the time you're ready for breakfast the first morning, the burritos are fully thawed. Then simply reheat them in a large skillet over the campstove or fire grate.
Feed the family a substantial, hot breakfast, fast. Keep these in the freezer for inexpensive zap-and-run convenience! Adapt the recipe to your tastes, dietary needs. Try another variety of cream soup, such as cheddar cheese. Sub diced beef or ham for the sausage, cubed potatoes or broccoli for the veggies, tortillas or English muffins for the pita.
