Food Find: HoneySuckle White Italian Turkey Sausage

We’re big fans of Italian food in my house. We’d eat pasta or pizza every night if we could get away with it- but we can’t. My Food Find this week is HoneySuckle White’s Italian Turkey Sausage.

honeysuckle white turkey sausageI’d had a craving for stuffed shells for a while, but wouldn’t give in because I just didn’t want to let myself eat the Italian-style pork sausage and lean ground beef combo I typically use. While grocery shopping I spotted the HoneySuckle turkey sausage, and figured I’d give it a shot.

My Recipe
We were pleasantly surprised. The flavor is fantastic, it crumbled just the way I wanted and I didn’t feel bad for eating it. I added chopped mushrooms, shredded carrots, chopped sweet red pepper and fresh basil to my sauce, packed the mixture into whole grain pasta shells, sprinkled the top with a little parmiggiano-reggiano cheese and baked a fantastic pasta dish, with a healthy kick.

You should definitely consider this turkey as an alternative to make your favorite recipes healthier. HoneySuckle White, and its sister brand ShadyBrook Farms, make a quality product with a broad variety like Turkey Brats and Tenderloins (also good, and will save calories at the summer cookouts!). It’s definitely something you can sneak in and your family won’t quite notice the difference.

I have tried the Honeysuckle White Italian Sausage twice now and think it is the worst Italian sausage I ever tasted. I grew up in Chicago where they make the best Italian sausage. Put some Fennel seed and Italian spice in there to give it some taste, please! I love your other turkey products and use them all the time.

I am definitely going to try this italian turkey sausage. I think it would be great to still have the flavor without all the calories of pork sausage!

I have been using this prodcut for about a month. We put it in pasta dishes and on pizza. My husband has yet to figure out the difference! What a great product. No grease, no guilt!

SPICY. We had to ask the growcery chain to please bring in some
turkey products. They responded by stocking your products.
We eat & use either chicken or turkey in most or all of our cooking
needs. The ground turkey makes excelent spagetti, with out any
