Grampa's Coriander Turkey Sausage

Rated as 4.44 out of 5 Stars

"My father-in-law is known for his Sunday breakfasts. Homemade sausage, fluffy eggs and tender fried potatoes and onions...yum. My kids loved spending time at Gramma's and Grampa's farm with the horses and other animals, and always came home talking about breakfast -- which was normally served well after 11 a.m.! (I have mixed all the ingredients together and fried right away -- tastes great, but don't tell Grampa!)"

  1. In a bowl, thoroughly mix together the turkey, coriander, salt, brown sugar, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate the sausage overnight.
  2. The next day, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Form the sausage into thin patties, and fry until browned and no longer pink inside, 2 to 5 minutes per side.

Easy to make and good flavor! Added a few additional spices to our liking. Family was 1/2 fans & 1/2 not convinced due to texture.

Hooray for Grampa! I make this now so often I have the recipe memorized. I use it for turkey burgers. A great addition is to chop some fresh basil and mix that up in there too. And, yes, it stil...

I have been trying to cook healthier, but wanted a heartier breakfast sometime, and I came across this recipe. I had 1 lb of ground turkey in the fridge, so it was perfect. It tasted pretty clos...

Used sage instead of coriander. Broiled in oven 4 minutes per side and topped with cheese. Absolutely fabulous! Tastes exactly like sausage but without the calories and fat.

Per other reviewers, I cut back the pepper to 1/2 teaspoon. I did add 1/2 teaspoon of rubbed sage. I made no other changes or substitutions. I used my 1/4 dry measuring cup to make uniform sized...

Usually I change recipes to suit my own tastes, but this one I left as is and the outcome was phenomenal! This tastes just like normal sausage, my boyfriend couldn't even tell I had used turkey....

This is are really yummy recipe. I sometimes change up the spices, adding sage, clove and ginger. It's just the taste that I have been looking for. Sweet, but not too sweet.

Yum!! So easy and delicious. Cooked some of these up with roasted potatoes, roasted broccoli and fried eggs... a great 'comfort meal' for a chilly evening. The coriander really does make it tast...
