Turkey Breakfast Sausage Recipe


I have not been able to find organic and nitrite free breakfast sausage anywhere. I’ve reluctantly been buying regular chicken or turkey breakfast sausage and just eating it sparingly. My mom even got fresh sausage from a neighbor’s pig they sent in to the butcher, and it even had msg as an ingredient. But we really love sausage. I don’t know why it never dawned on me to use organic ground turkey and just add spices myself. I now make this in quadruple batches and freeze it!

Sausage, egg, and cheese sandwiches and sausage and gravy will now be able to be enjoyed more freely. We also add it to omelets a lot. Dave is super happy to have this recipe, sausage is one of his favorite foods.

Turkey Breakfast Sausage

makes 5 good sized patties

12 oz ground turkey

1 tsp sage

1/2 tsp fennel seed

3/4 tsp thyme

1/4 tsp rosemary

1 tsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp cayenne

1 egg, beaten well (only if using a really lean meat)

Put all spices into a small food processor (magic bullet) or coffee/seed grinder and process until all spices are a fine powder.

Mix spices and beaten egg into the meat and make sure its all evenly distributed. Refrigerate overnight or freeze.

Form into 5 patties and cook over medium heat in a lightly oiled frying pan. Or cook as you would ground meat and use for sausage gravy or omelet filling.
