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!
The flavor of these is dead on! They were enjoyed very much by my family. Thank you.
These are a keeper!
I made these patties for DH and me last weekend and we both loved them. I'm a bratwurst lover (grew up in WI, where it's the law) and the flavor of these patties is spot on. I have to admit that it's not quite as good as a brat (how could it be without all the juicy fat?), but it's a nice healthy version that gives a good fix without all the fat. I was lazy after the first batch and just browned the rest of the turkey at the same time; each day I'd then just serve it open-faced over bread and drizzle with mustard. I also grilled some red onion and threw that in the mix. healthy, low-fat and tasty lunch that is easy to make ahead of time and reheat through the week. Thanks for posting!
