Amish Sausage

10

I love sausage but not all the fat and other things that are usually in it. Perfect solution, make my own. I started making this a couple of years ago and everyone loves it. I trim all the fat off the pork before I grind it or use ground turkey breast, way less fat.

12
2 pounds lean ground pork, or ground turkey
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
In a deep bowl, combine all ingredients, using hands. On waxed paper, shape and roll into two logs, 6 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate over night. Slice rolls into rounds about 1/2 inch thick and fry in heavy skillet over medium heat, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately. Makes 24 slices.
