I thought these tasted good, but honestly felt like it was more reminiscent of a turkey burger in flavor than a sausage patty. There is another recipe for turkey sausage on the site, that I tweak and make a bit sweeter that I liked more. This has more of a heat taste to it. I followed the recipe exactly, only making 1/2 recipe and further cutting the hot red pepper flakes in half. Glad I did that, because these were plenty hot. The cook times were way off. I sat over the stove 25 plus minutes. At temp 7 they wanted to burn. At low, or temp 3, the internal temp would not move. Something in-between that would be good. I felt like I was standing over the stove forever. I finally gave up on my thermometer registering the best temp, because the patties would have been completely dry at that time. If I made again, I would add more sweetener, less heat, and probably broil them. The salt and pepper could be reduced some too. I got 9 thick patties and cooked them in 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil. Loved the calories count at 91 each, including the cooking oil, using lean turkey meat. I may make these in the future, with the intent for sandwiches though and stick to my other recipe for breakfast.
