*For easier mornings, make the sausage burgers the night before. Keep them, on a plate covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator. Add an extra 30 seconds or so per side to the cooking time to compensate for the fact that the burgers are chilled.
*You can substitute minced turkey breast or lean minced pork for the chicken.
Puréed prunes are great for healthy cooking. They replace the fat in this recipe, and can also be used as a substitute for butter, margarine or other fat when baking.
