Germans are master sausage makers, producing an estimated 1,500 varieties. This recipe includes typical bratwurst spices like ginger and nutmeg; lean ground turkey is a lower-fat alternative to traditional pork and veal. Serve these patties with Brown Beer Rye Bread and mustard for a hearty sandwich.

How to Make It

Combine all the ingredients except cooking spray, and mix well. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Add 4 patties; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Repeat procedure with the cooking spray and the remaining patties.

God, easy...I also added some chopped shallot and a touch of grated garlic and served them, on onion rolls.

Excellent. All the brat taste without the unhealthy nastiness. I served it with a Vidalia onion relish and a sweet Bavarian mustard.
