Turkey sausage meatballs

It's easy to make your own turkey sausage with an Italian flavor..this mixture can be shaped into patties and browned in a pan with a little olive oil for a good breakfast sausage or like I did...shaped them into meatballs and baked them for 20 -30 minutes at 350F and then simmered them in marinara sauce.  Great over pasta or on a sub roll with some provolone cheese melted on.

Here's the basic mixture:

1 lb ground turkey
1 Tbl crushed red pepper
2 tsp. ground garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbl sugar
2 tsp fennel seed
1 egg
1 cup panko bread crumbs

Thoroughly combine all the ingredients and cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours before shaping and cooking.
