From Cooking Light. Nice substitute for a full-fat brat. Except for the salt and pepper, I use the full amount of spice for one pound of turkey. I tried with ground chicken (not ground chicken breast) the other day and that was great too.


  1. Combine all ingredients except spray and mix well.
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2 inch thick patty.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over med high.
  4. Coat with spray.
  5. Add 4 patties; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done.
  6. Repeat procedure with spray and remaining patties.
  7. Serve with rye bread and spicy mustard.

Followed the recipe exactly as it is and was pleasantly surprised how good they turned out. As the other reviewer stated not as full flavored as the fully loaded high fat sausage in the stores, but if you look around the ingredients are quite similar to other bratwurst recipes. I made 4 oz patties and put them on the grill medium heat for 4 minutes each side. The only thing I would change next time is to let the meat sit with the seasoning for 24 hours before cooking to see if it brings out the flavor.

Very tasty. Hubby thought they tasted very much like brats. Even the kids enjoyed this one. Thanks.

I have this recipe from when I received the magazine and I love this recipe! It tastes just like a brat but of course without all the fat! I have accidentally used the amount of spices stated for 2 lbs of turkey while only using 1 lb of meat and now I purposely do it with 1.5 lbs of meat because I like my food highly seasoned (especially ground turkey). These are so good on toasted bread with cheese, mustard and ketchup and homemade oven fries!
