Savory Sausages

Savory Sausages
1 cup black-eyed peas, somewhat drained;)
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
One half of a 4 oz. can of mushroom, well drained, finely diced
or 1/8 cup very finely chopped fresh mushrooms
2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon crushed fennel
1 or 2 dashes crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon basil
1 or 2 sprigs parsley, finely chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
1 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Mash black-eyed peas and flour together in bowl. Add mushrooms together with peas and flour. I like to sprinkle a little of the seasonings into the "meat" mixture. Roll into sausage shapes. Put spices on clean surface, like a plate and roll the sausages over the spice mixture, coating well. In frying pan on medium to low heat, in a little oil fry the sausages, carefully turning as they brown. (And they do turn a nice golden brown)Serve hot and enjoy!

We had this at Tammies house over general conference weekend on her homemade pizzas! Oh my goodness it was so tasty. Fun, Fun, Fun!

We just made these as sausage patties for dinner tonight and wowza! They were so good.

It has been so long since I have had meat but I thought these tasted like the real deal. I think the trick for us was to not hold back on the olive oil when frying them in the pan. I forgot how fattening pork is and adding extra oil gave it the same texture/flavor.

Thanks for another great recipe!

I have made these sausages several times for my family's dinner. I had to laugh when my two year old son said, "More meat please." They are better than meat any day!!

"Your sausages actually look like sausages!"

:) I didn't have mushrooms, but did have onion, so I chopped a bit of that. I had kidney beans rather than black eyed, and found mine to be a bit sticky, so I put in 1/2 cup oat flour, and followed the suggestion to fry in more oil, and coated my hands with the oat flour which made them a cinch to roll. I am so excited, they are yummy! I'll admit I am pleasantly surprised. :) This was a test drive to see how they'd work for the fam. This recipe made about 6 hot-dog sized sausages.
