Chicken, Sage Breakfast Sausage

Submitted by: THYMEWARRIOR

Introduction

I love Jimmy Dean's Sage sausage but with 180 calories per 2-ounce serving (and 140 of those calories are from fat) it is an indulgence. Compare this chicken sausage, which is delicious, to Jimmy Dean's and then give it a try. This chicken sausage has less sodium, less than half the calories, only 1 gram of fat compared to JD's 16 grams and over twice the protein. JD's sausage also has some undesirable additives like corn syrup, dextrose and monosodium glutamate (MSG).

Ingredients

    1 pound boneless, skinless ground chicken breast
    1 tbsp sage
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp ground garlic
    dash of black pepper

Directions

Weigh 16 ounces of defrosted, boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cut into 2"-3" pieces and place in your food processor with other ingredients. Pulse until the consistency of ground meat.

Separate into approximately six, 2-1/2 ounce servings. Form into patties and store in a plastic bag, separated with wax paper. Store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

To cook, rub a little cooking oil on a non-stick skillet and cook the patties over medium-low heat until cooked through. About 10 minutes.

Makes 6 servings

You can also make this into an Italian sausage by substituting the sage with rosemary and basil.
