"This is a VERY simple way to enjoy Middle Eastern flavors in an American format... the hot dog! Serve on a bun or wrapped in a pita. I like adding banana-ketchup, but any condiment will do! Tahini might be appropriate. Rice or couscous or an Israeli salad would make a fine side dish. Use ground turkey with a 7% or 8% fat content, as the super lean turkey will be harder to cook with." — CURIOUSKANGAROO

I already rated this once before, but I had to write again! So good and so easy. I used plain yogurt mixed with mango chutney as a sauce and served with warm tortillias. Thank you so much. I only used about 3/4 of a teaspoon of each spice... perfect!UPDATE ON REVIEW: I now usually serve with warm whole wheat pita bread and mix the mango chutney with light sour cream....YUM!
Not bad, the spices were a bit overpowering though. These were good in a hotdog bun or on their own.
Very easy and surprisingly authentic tasting. My husband told me that these taste as good as the kafta (beef sausages) he gets at our favorite Middle Eastern restaurant. We ate them two to a pita with tzatziki sauce. My only complaint was that they were a little dry -- I think I cooked them too long. Next time I will not let them brown so much in the pan or only bake them for four minutes.
We love these! I mix the spices in early in the day and refrigerate until just before dinner. It is wonderful to have another low-fat decadance up my sleeve. Thank you!
Fantastic! I have made these sausages into patties as well. I never thought i could enjoy a low fat sausage without bread or egg. i like to dip these in dijon mustard and eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Excellent with hummus and tzatziki in a pita! Easy to prepare, and tasty!
This had a great taste, but I didn't form it into tubes as directed. I ended up making this a loose meat sandwich, using pitas and a california style israeli salad from this site. The seasonings were great. I would recommend getting in there and using your hands to mix the seasonings in with the meat, I made the mistake of not doing that, and ran into spots of heavily seasoned meat.
We thought this was a great change from "the usual". I thought before I made them that it seemed like the recipe called for a lot of spices, but we decided after eating the meal that we wouldn't change any of the spices or amounts. The one thing we did do, was to check to see if they were done after 4 minutes in the oven and they were. We ate them in wholewheat pitas with Tzatziki sauce, and loved them! We will definitely make them again!
