Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean turkey breakfast sausage, uncooked I use Jennie-O
  • 4 large carrots finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 stalks celery finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium sweet onion finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp thyme dried
  • 1 tsp ground sage dried
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 6 oz packages already prepared stuffing mix I use Stove Top
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar I use Sargento Sharp Cheddar
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup egg whites or egg substitute

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

  2. In a large hot skillet add your turkey sausage and break apart with spatula. When the meat is broken up add all of the chopped vegetables, thyme, sage, and kosher salt. Continue to cook over medium-high heat until meat is cooked and vegetables are softened. 

  3. In a large mixing bowl add stuffing mix, cooked sausage and vegetables, chicken broth, shredded cheese, and egg whites. 

  4. Dig in and mix with your hands! This needs to be combined VERY well.

    (If for some reason the mixture seems a little dry add a bit of chicken broth.) 

  5. Form into 40 golf ball sized balls. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 


  6. Place in preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Serve with a toothpick stuck in them for a fun appetizer feel! Enjoy!
