Introduction: Hot Italian Turkey Sausage Mix

I needed a good sausage mixture to add in to a lasagna I was making and developed this recipe.

Using ground turkey keeps it a little healthier than using pork, and the spices add in the right amount of spiciness!

Step 1: Ingredients

So, this is very simple and straight forward, but comes out really delicious!


20 ozs. Ground Turkey

¼ cup Cold red wine

¼ cup Chopped fresh parsley

1 ¼ tsp. Salt

¾ tsp. Garlic powder

¾ tsp. Onion powder

¾ tsp. Ground black pepper

¾ tsp. Dried Oregano

1 ¼ tsp. Fennel seed

½ tsp. Crushed red pepper flakes (use more if you really like it spicy!)

1 ¼ tsp. Smoked Paprika

Step 2: Make Mixture

  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover bowl.
  2. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours - up to 3 days

Use with your favorite sauce, make patties, stuff into a sausage casing...
