Bought some cheap, whole frozen turkey, this week, boned out the breasts, one we had for our Sunday Lunch, the other is in the fridge in a brine cure and then stripped the rest of the meat and skin off the bones to make some sausages. Here are the sausages, fantastic, juicy, full of flavour, cheap and easy to make.
1.2 kg of turkey meat, thigh, leg, wing and trimmings after removing breasts from the carcass, I also used some skin, as I like the extra textural element in the sausage
100g of defrosted, chopped spinach, squeezed dry. (weight after squeezing dry)
150g of olive oil marinated, feta cheese, available in the local grocer in small jars.
1 level tsp of marjoram
1 level tsp of oregano
1level tsp of sage
1 level tsp of dried parsley
3 tsp salt
3 level tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
75g dried breadcrumbs
150ml of chilled water
Freeze the chunks of turkey meat until they become slightly crisp
Mince the meat through the coarse disk of your meat grinder
Add all the dry ingredients and the spinach, and mix by hand until the forcemeat become sticky to the touch, 3-4 minutes
Add the Feta cheese pieces, and the spiced oil from the jar, and mix again until the mixture once more becomes sticky, it will remain slightly shiny from the olive oil.
Stuff into collagen casings.
Place in the refridgerator overnight.
Fry, or grill, and eat and enjoy a surprisingly tasty low fat treat!
