About Turkey Sausage

What is Turkey Sausage? It is basically made using ground turkey as opposed to ground pork. Using ground turkey in dishes is a low fat alternative to beef or pork.  The ground turkey sausage I purchase lately has been been a Walmart brand.  Lately, we’ve had a shortage on pork but I have always been able to find the ground turkey.  I’ve used ground turkey sausage in various appetizers and meals over the past few years.  This blend of herbs with the ground turkey really tastes amazing and taste like pork.
