As promised I mixed up the turkey sausage last night and cooked it this morning. It was actually very good, but I did go a bit overboard with the spices. It was a bit peppery and Cheryl thought it too salty. Although it tasted fine once I scrambled in the eggs. So here’s the revised recipe, I cut the salt and pepper back to two teaspoons. Overall I was quite pleased with the results. What’s not to love about a delicious egg and sausage burrito?
Green Chile Turkey Sausage
1 pound of ground turkey, 93% Lean
3 heaping tablespoons of chopped green chile.
2 teaspoons of kosher salt
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of black pepper
1 teaspoon of white pepper
1 teaspoon of sage
1 teaspoon of green chile powder
Mix all ingredients and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
I took this picture last night. Looks pretty spicy, huh?
Browning the sausage in a hot pan with a little bit of peanut oil. The meat was really lean and it need a little oil to get the meat to brown.
Scrambled in some eggs for the burrito. My favorite thing about egg burritos, is it’s a one dish kinda meal.
Heat up a nice tortilla and add some manchego cheese.
Here’s a nice picture of the plate before I made the burrito. We have a set of plates with Lotteria images on them. Does that make for a sexy blog or what?
Well the week is off to a good start, I cooked something and got a blog post up. Later this week I am going to tackle grilling some elk meat. I’ll probably start off with a burger, because it’s really hard to screw up a burger and it’s a good way to get a real flavor for the meat. I’m also excited to try my spice mix on a some game meat.
