I never thought of making breakfast sausage. That looks really good, minus the sugar to suit my taste. Does it freeze well if I make the patties and freeze them raw?

I have never frozen them raw. I cook them all first then freeze them. I warm them up in the pan when I make my eggs. You could microwave them too. They are really good and nice to have on hand.

Thanks! That sounds convenient. There is stuff in commercial sausages that I don't care to eat so making my own is very appealing.

I can't have most sausage anymore because of what's in it. (I still get the urge to strangle my neurologist when I think about it.) This is a great way for me to get my fix! You have perfect timing to save me from breakfast drudgery, I've been on the verge of caving and eating the stuff in my freezer. I'm a huge fan of having stuff that's super quick and easy, so having precooked patties ready to just heat up and enjoy with my eggs is perfect.

Wow, never thought I would eat breakfast sausage again. It just doesn't sit well. I hope it's okay if I take the fennel seeds out, they freak me out just looking at them.

Thanks again for the recipe. :D

You can leave the fennel seeds out..no problem. I have made it both with and without. I also have used McCormick rubbed sage in place of fresh. Sometimes it's hard to find.

How much rubbed sage? Maybe a teaspoon? The store didn't have fresh when I got the rest of the ingredients. Can't wait to try this tomorrow!

I make my own sausages too, only I use ground turkey and substitute basil for the sage. They are good and really easy to warm up later.

If you bought McCormick, it says on the bottle how much dry to use in place of fresh. I don't have it near but it's on the back.

I hope you like it!!

I have to avoid corn like I do gluten...Same reaction. Ground turkey has corn in the "natural flavors" Basil sounds good too.

Sage and fennel? Sauteed onions? I already know I'll like it. :) I'm just going to leave the sugar out and only use the apple because I like sausage that's more savory than sweet. My sage is Spice Island and there's nothing on the bottle. I think the rule of thumb for herbs is 1/3 the amount of fresh when you use dried.

I'm making it with ground beef instead of pork.

And no sugar.

Thank you!

Colleen,

You are so cute and you continue to amuse me. Fennel seeds freak you out?

Look at it this way, they are a lot smaller than the horned tomato worms you love so much. :)

Crack just one fennel seed open and see if you like the aroma.

AWESOME flavor, but a little goes a long way.

Glad to see you are experimenting in the kitchen! yaaay!

I LOVE this idea--recipe and freezing it. Also, thanks Skylark for the 1/3 dried herbs per fresh herbs advice.

Yes, this is very good. Thanks! B) 1 tsp. dried sage works, and for me they were perfect with just the apple and no sugar.

For non-pork people, this would probably work with ground turkey.

IH, I first saw fennel seeds in Italian sausage, they looked like these worm things I found in an old box of rice years ago. I saw them in sausage on a pizza once and lost it. Do you think I have a bad relationship with worms? :huh:

But, I will Crack one open and sniff. Maybe I can just grind up some and use it that way. That would be easier than 10 years of therapy about pseudo worms. :lol:

Just buy your fennel pre-ground. It won't have quite as strong a flavor but it beats feeling ill from looking at them!

Well, Sky beat me to it....thanks, SKY!!! :)

but, really honey, we need to get you over the "ICK" thing you have about SOOOOO many things.

Sky? Colleen is afraid of bugs..... and apparently, thinks other things look like bugs too, including harmless fennel seeds. :lol:

But we're being extra nice and understanding of her because she is quitting smoking right now.

And that is a HUGE thing and we are sooooo proud of her!!

Go, Colleen, Go Colleen, Go Colleen.

I'm sure the recipe is good as is, I make substitution because we don't eat pork for religious reasons and Bob is allergic to sage. We all do what we have to do.

That's the truth! :)

I prefer the ground turkey, too (in most things I sub in for the red meat ) and so, may I ask you, when you use it recipes, do you notice it is much drier (from lack of fat) and therefore, seems to stick to the pan? I make a chili with ground turkey and boy, I have a hard time keeping it from getting TOO brown and stuck to the bottom. I end up using EVOO to keep it moist.

Any tips most appreciated!! :)

I've had the same sticking problem with ground turkey, IH. I usually use ghee rather than EVOO because I don't like heating vegetable oils. Besides, butter flavor improves everything! :lol:

    • Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away.  The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock.  The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening.  I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative.   I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!   PPS( )  Inasmuch as your post can convey emotion, your's seemed positive  Stay that way! At times the diet can be a bit isolating and some friends and family may struggle to understand. I'm sure it will be difficult at times making good choices and staying vigilant when everyone around you doesn't have to think twice. Stick with it, your health is paramount and it will be worthwhile. In time your good friends will get it and those that don't aren't worth worrying about. There are great foods you can eat and if not, learn to cook them yourself
