Whether you prefer it smoked, baked or fried, turkey makes for a delicious component of any meal. With Turkey Lovers Month upon us this June, it’s time to celebrate this yummy poultry with some new turkey sausage recipes. You can add some new dishes to your repertoire with these bold and flavorful ideas.
Apple Butter and Turkey Sausage Rolls
If you’re looking for a burst of flavor, these elegant and portable hors d’oeuvres fit the ticket. Start by thawing out a puff pastry, dusting it with flour and then cutting the roll into pieces. Afterwards, brush some apple butter over each piece before adding slices of our Turkey Summer Sausage and a sprinkle of our Farmhouse Cheddar. Finish everything off by rolling the pastry and baking until golden brown.
This fun version of a turkey wrap is sure to be a family hit. Start by sauteeing onion, celery and turkey sausage in a pan before adding a can of cream of mushroom soup. Simply spoon the mixture onto croissant dough, roll it up and bake for 8 to 9 minutes.
These cigars make for a fun twist on a classic combination — turkey and cranberry. In a skillet, mix together the sausage, shredded Mission Jack Blend cheese, parsley, walnuts, a dollop of honey and a bit of mustard. Brush some phyllo dough with butter, add the mixture, roll and bake. Serve your Turkey Cigars with our Cranberry Mustard for dipping and an extra burst of flavor.
Cheese and Sausage Appetizers
These slightly spicy appetizers can add a little something special to your bread course. Start by combining our Smoked Cheddar Blend with butter, flour, salt and a dash of cayenne pepper before mixing in the sausage. Roll the dough into small balls and place on a baking sheet. You can enjoy these yummy little biscuits fresh out of the oven.
