    Do you have to use gluten free crackers? I would prefer to not use them or substitute them. Would it make much of a difference? Thank you for sharing!

    I just made the turkey sausage this morning and it was AWESOME! I also made the french toast with sourdough bread and topped them off with fresh berries. This was the best breakfast that I have had in a very long time.

    I have been looking for a homemade sausage recipe for a long time and this looks wonderful.

    I too can’t find organic turkey so will use ground chicken and can’t wait to make them. Thank you Dr. AXE.

    I use to get the Mary’s Gone Crackers at Costco! They switch out things though…you are so generous with your recipes Dr. Axe. I too like chicken better. Where do I get fresh ground chicken? Never knew they had it!

    I make a homemade sausage with fresh ground chicken. I like the taste of chicken better than turkey. I season it more like original sausage….1 tbsp.sage, pinch of nutmeg, tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, red pepper flakes for heat (optional), maple syrup, if you like it sweet. It’s delicious. I make it into patties and freeze. Take out and fry as needed.

    Since hearing about the “pink slime” in processed beef, I can’t help but be leary about other processed meats in stores. Do you have a specific brand of ground turkey that you suggest? Thanks in advance!

    Mary’s Gone Crackers, and all varieties thereof and in new packaging is available at Fresh Market, if you have one in your area. Also, have bought at our local Outpost Natural stores in Milwaukee and Whole Foods. They are the best, also as a snacker cracker w/almond butter and make the best salmon burgers. Recipe from Dr. Axe. …and, he is the BEST.

        Yikes! I looked at the ‘Mary’s Gone Crackers’ using your link, Dr. Axe… sure, Amazon has them… at NINE BUCKS PER BOX!! Oh, Amazon…really? Well, people WILL pay that -just for the ease of ordering – however, one can look around and find a little better deal than that on Amazon or another site. I did so myself, and the best I saw was $4 per box, but it was a 12 pack. (amazon again) Not sure I want quite that many :) However, persistence will pay off and I will find them for less in a smaller quantity, or something comparable (organic, gluten free, etc). It’s about ‘want to’.

    Can’t wait to make this! I went into the “Mary’s Gone Crackers” hyperlink and it showed product was unavailable. I’m guessing my favorite crackers from Costco would suffice. Go to this website and get your coupon too get these non GMO, wheat and gluten-free crackers; they’re the best: https://www.crunchmaster.com/products/multi-seed-grain-club-pack.aspx
