Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® All Natural* Turkey Sausage
  • 2 cups egg substitute or 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¾ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 (16-ounce) can buttermilk biscuits

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small saucepan over medium heat, combine maple syrup, apple juice and brown sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved; set syrup aside. Cook sausage as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Crumble sausage into pieces.
  2. In large bowl, whisk 8 eggs. Reserve 2 tablespoons egg; set aside. In skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 minute or until eggs begin to set. Stir in cooked sausage, onion and cheese. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until eggs are set.
  3. Lightly grease baking sheet. Press or roll biscuits on lightly floured surface to form a 6-inch circle; spoon turkey mixture into center of each biscuit. Fold biscuits in half to enclose filling. Press edge of biscuits together to seal. Place on baking sheet. Brush with remaining egg mixture. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with syrup.
