We like most any type of sausage ~ whether it’s beef, pork or veal ~ whether it’s fresh, cooked and smoked, or dry. Now, a new one has been added to the list ~ turkey sausage.
Bill is really big on turkey so when I saw a package of Italian-style turkey sausages in the grocery store the other day, I bought it for something new to try on him. There are a plethora of recipes for turkey sausage on the Internet, and I zoned in on this one from Dr. Oz.
This was good! If you’re a fan of sweet turkey sausage, bell peppers and tomatoes, you’ll like it too. The next time, I’ll be making this with hot turkey sausage, instead of sweet.
This recipe is a keeper! I served it with brown rice and a green salad.

1 package Jennie-O Sweet Italian-style turkey sausage (5 sausages)

Spray skillet generously with cooking spray again and add onions.
