A quick turkey breakfast sausage that is easy to make, delicious to eat and plays friendly with your waistline.
Ingredients
  • 1 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1 tsp ground thyme
  • ½ tsp dried marjoram
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
Instructions
  1. Add brown sugar, kosher salt, black pepper, sage, thyme marjoram and red pepper flakes to a bowl and mix.
  2. Add the ground turkey. Mix thoroughly to combine.
  3. Form the mixture into 2-3 oz patties and pan fry.
  4. Serve as is or along with a fried egg and cheese in a breakfast sandwich.

This sausage was flavorful, delicious and easy to make.  Make sure to make nice and thin patties.  I tried making a 4 oz patty that was similar to a hamburger.  It was delicious, but a ton of meat for 8 AM.  It totally overpowered the egg and cheese.  However, it was good, so if you like a lot of meat, try it out.

    Would these work well if you cooked them and then froze? I buy frozen turkey patties for breakfast but would prefer to make my own and stash them in the freezer.

      Cameron – I don't see why not. I have not tried it, but this is how I would do it. I would freeze them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Then after about 3-4 hours remove them from the cookie sheet and place them in a freezer zip top bag to store for the long haul. Individually freezing them on a cookie sheet will allow them to freeze faster and will make breaking them apart a lot easier.
