I and my family are most definitely NOT obsessed with turkey. At Thanksgiving, half of us still don't eat turkey. And I have spice issues (some are allergies and others just intolerances), a spinach allergy, and technically a tomato allergy (but it only causes my throat to swell shut once in a blue moon, so its fine as long as I am careful to limit consumption).Margo the US seems obsessed by turkey everything (you know you can consume 3 people's food if it's 'lean' turkey and it's not bad for you? Not sure if any of it's actually turkey though, I don't see the turkey population to provide.
So I'm assuming some kind of Italian type sausage ( fennel eg type) or really any sausage you like would work.
Remember so many American recipes revolve around processed ingredients that are easily substituted.
I eat hamburger and ham and bacon... And in the last couple years, i have added chicken breast (in very small, cut up pieces, I can eat about an ounce in a meal). Spicing things is done with salt, garlic powder or garlic salt or garlic, onions or onion powder, a very small amount of pepper, and a tiny bit of oregano.
If my FAM is eating something spicy, I eat something else or my sister makes me a bland version They also warn me about potential spice issues because they are not fond of the ER waiting room, lol.
