Another southern American staple I collected in my college years in Huntsville was Sausage gravy. The creamy, buttery gravy gives you all the feels when slathered all over biscuits and eggs.

Instead of biscuits I decided to use up some Gouda grits by making grit cakes. Such a wicked combination of flavors with the cheesy crisp grit cake and the creamy sweet sausage gravy.

Start by combining the turkey meat and seasonings with maple syrup. Roll into a tube shape, wrap with plastic and allow to marinate (For the best result marinate overnight).

2

Second, prepare the sausage meat by removing the plastic wrap and shape into patties.

Heat the pan on medium high and add a splash of oil. Place your patties into the pan and cook until brown on both sides.

3

Last, remove from pan and allow to rest before serving. This recipe makes 16 small patties (however I used half to make the gravy).

Freeze them patties

Can’t eat them all in one go? Load them up into a freezer seal zip lock bag. They will keep for well over 1 month, if they last that long.
