Wow, wow, wow!! I halved the recipe just to make sure we liked it and now I wish I had made the whole thing! I made this for my dad because he really likes sausage, but I worry about the fat, sodium, and preservatives he’s eating in store-bought sausage. I used a 19.2 ounce package of extra lean ground pork and got 15 two-inch patties out of it. I omitted the red pepper flakes because my dad doesn’t care for spicy sausage and, based on a few reviews, I cut the brown sugar in half. The flavor was so good that my dad didn’t even add salt…something he applies in liberal quantities to store-bought sausage!! This will be our breakfast sausage from now on. I can’t wait to try it with turkey! Thanks for an awesome recipe :-) ****UPDATE**** I tried this with ground turkey this morning. I cut the recipe in half because I only wanted to "waste" 1 pound of meat if it didn't turn out good, but it was awesome! I use the cheap ground turkey, so it was kind of gloppy after mixing it up. It wasn't possible to form patties with my hands, so I used a tablespoon sized measuring spoon and scooped small mounds into my skillet, then smoothed them into roughly round, flattened shapes. The first time I flipped them over was a little tricky, because they hadn't fully firmed up yet, but after that it was smooth sailing. I made eight patties and then crumble-fried the rest of it for gravy. We had sausage patties with biscuits and gravy for breakfast. YUMMY!!!
