Ingredients

  • 14 ounces turkey sausage, removed from it’s casing
  • 1 small or ½ medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • Vegetable oil

Preparation
Prep Time: 15min | Cook Time: 6min

  1. Add the sausage meat, onion, sage and fennel to a sauté pan.
  2. Cook over medium heat, breaking up the meat as it browns, about 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer the sausage to a bowl and set aside.
  4. Add the salt, pepper, egg and flour to the mashed potatoes.
  5. Mix well until the egg and flour are well combined.
  6. Take a golf ball size handful of potato and shape into a flat pancake.
  7. Place 1 tablespoon of sausage in the center, then place another pancake of potato on top, sealing the edges. Shape into ‘hockey’ puck shapes.
  8. Add the oil ¼ to a sauté pan over medium heat.
  9. Once the oil starts to ripple, carefully add 3 dumplings (don’t overcrowd the pan).
  10. Fry the dumplings for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel and serve warm.

Notes

A quick way to cook potatoes: Prick holes in the potatoes with a fork and microwave them 1 at a time on high for 4 minutes, turn over and repeat. Allow to cool enough to handle, then they are easy to peel and mash.

After making them put them in an egg and butter bath and roll them in cracker crumbs. I added a little bacon the the sausage fried them up and served them with eggs for breakfast. A little gravy might be nice as well

I suggest chilling the hockey pucks before frying...also perhaps 1/4 cup flour instead of 1 Tbls.
