I just realized that I hadn't rated this!! This is wonderful! I love having the control over the fattiness of the turkey as well as the spicyness. My only changes are no poultry seasoning, which I don't miss at all, and I usually don't need canola oil since the turkey I generally use is 93% fat free. This has become a family staple. I do up about 3 lbs. at a time and then freeze it to have on hand for pizza or to throw into sauces or soups/stews. Fabulous!!

yay finally a turkey sausage recipe that is good! I halved the salt and Ill probably leave it out next time. I didnt have poultry seasoning so I left it out. I also added a bit of sage. Will make again!

Thanks so much for sharing this. My husband enjoyed it! I cut the poultry seasoning amount a lot, too--used about a quarter of the amount. I also cut the salt amount in half. I didn't have caraway seed, but found out you could use a little cumin instead, and I had no celery seed! I also left out the oil. The fennel seeds & crushed red pepper made a huge difference. Used lean ground turkey & plan on using this in calzones & soups. Thanks again for sharing!!!
