Ingredients

  • 1  Pound  lean ground turkey sausage
  • 1/4  Cup  finely chopped celery
  • 1/4  Cup  chopped onion
  • eggs
  • 2  Cups  chopped cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2  Cup  chopped summer squash, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1  Teaspoon  dried parsley
  • 3  Teaspoons  dried sage
  • 3  Teaspoons  dried thyme
  • 1  Teaspoon  minced garlic
  • 1/8  Teaspoon  black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Break sausage up into a skillet. Put skillet over medium heat, add the celery and cook, stirring often, until the celery starts to get a little soft, then add onion and cook, stirring often, until the onion gets soft.

Continue cooking, stirring often, until the sausage is totally cooked through.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs, then add the cooked sausage mixture to the bowl, mix eggs into meat, then add remaining ingredients and mix together until blended.

Turn into a small casserole dish, cover, and put in preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. 

Check, and if it's too moist, uncover and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until edges start to brown.
