If you like the taste of sausage, but need to cut back on fat, ground turkey breast offers a healthy substitute. A generous combination of herbs provides "sausage" flavor. I added 1/4 tsp. more salt and 2 cloves of mashed garlic. Instead of 2 egg whites I added 1 whole egg. I used 60% whole wheat bread for the fresh bread crumbs, whizzed in my food processor.. My husband thought he was eating sausage. The One-Day-at-a- Time Low-Fat Cookbook.
