Turkey Sausage

Turkey Sausage

It was only when we needed freezer space just before Christmas that I remembered that we'd bought a large turkey when they were selling them off after last Christmas! The time had come to use it up - there was 10lb of meat once I'd boned it.

I was confident that some of the Chicken recipes I'd seen over the years could be easily adapted for Turkey. I was so confident that I didn't do the small trial batches I would normally do when developing a recipe. How wrong I was proved to be; talk about 'pride comes before a fall', we hated them!

The two (badly stuffed!) sausages pictured above are Turkey, Spring Onion and Chilli, which also included some garlic and fresh ginger; and Turkey, Spinach and White Stilton, an adaption of one with Feta to make it more local. Whether the turkey was 'past it', or whether chicken and turkey aren't as interchangeable as I thought they were, I don't know. What I do know is no-one liked them.

Oh well, back to the drawing board.

Now, the Turkey 'Ham' that I made at the same time? Now that's another story...
