  1. Stir salt, sage, black pepper, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, and ginger in a small bowl. Place turkey into a separate bowl and thoroughly mix in the spices. Form sausage into patties.
  2. Fry the sausage patties in a skillet over medium heat until browned and the meat is no longer pink inside, 3 to 5 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For dinner sausage or hot sausage, add 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed and more crushed red pepper. If desired, substitute ground pork for turkey and add 2 tablespoons water to the meat.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.
