This easy recipe is a great way to get the taste of fresh sausage at home without having to bother with casings. By grinding the meat yourself in a food processor, you get meat that stays juicy and flavorful during cooking while still containing minimal fat. I like these on crusty french rolls, but feel free to shape the meat into burgers and serve on hamburger buns or even toasted bread.

In a food processor, pulse chicken until ground (6-8 times). Add onion, garlic, mango, bread crumbs, cumin, salt and pepper and process until well-combined, about 30 seconds. Shape mixture into 4 patties that mimic the shape of the buns.
Brush a grill or heavy frying pan lightly with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook the sausages, working in batches if necessary, until no longer pink in the center (about 5 minutes on each side).
To assemble the rolls, split each roll lengthwise and smear both sides of the inside bread with avocado. Place a sausage in each roll and top with tomato, onions or more cilantro, if desired. Serve.
Makes 4 sausage sandwiches.
