I've been searching for the perfect turkey breakfast sausage and this is it! Finally! Not only is it much healthier than store-bought greasy pork sausage, it's delicious too! The seasonings are spot-on. I did use 93/7 lean turkey and the packages I bought (Jennie-O) were 1.25lbs each, so it made a little more than the recipe stated. I think if I used 1lb packages of turkey, I might lower the salt a tiny bit since the 2tsp stated was perfect for the 2.5lbs turkey I used. Also, DO NOT overcook these or they will be dry. Personally, I think 5mins per side is too much. Thank you cathy35 for the great recipe!
I made this recipe while on a clean eating challenge, and I will probably never buy sausage again. I'm not the biggest sausage fan because of the gristle or fat that can be in it. With ground turkey, I know I'm not going to get that gross stuff. This is definitely going to be a staple in my house.
I followed the recipe pretty exactly, just added a touch more of the spices. SO easy to make! I wrapped my sausage patties individually, then put them into a ziplock freezer baggie and froze them. Just had one this morning with 1 scrambled egg, baby spinach and a piece of Provolone cheese on whole wheat toast for a healthy breakfast sammich! Delicious!
I made it as directed and made another batch with 1 TB olive oil & 1 large egg (slightly beaten) to it. The batch with the egg & olive oil was more tender and juicier although it was also stickier and a bit more difficult to make the patties. We fried the patties allowed them to cool then froze them. They were very easy to just pop into the microwave.
Have changed this up to be a hot Italian style for lunch sandwiches too. Added fennel garlic oregano and increased the red chili flakes. Flavor is very much of a good hot Italian sausage without the fat.
I cut the recipe in half. I had all the spices on hand except for dried sage, so I used ground sage. 1 teaspoon dried sage equals 1/4 teaspoon ground sage. I did increase the red pepper flakes just a tad. Very tasty! I will make this from now on. One Very easy way to get the patties is to use an ice cream scoop then flatten out to a patty shape. I froze patties on a sheet then put them uncooked in a bag. I cooked up frozen patties and they were just as good as the ones I made before I froze them.
I have made this several times now and it is easily my favorite homemade sausage recipe. Sausage is very flavorful but it's too salty for my taste so I cut the salt in half. Very flavorful and the best part is I don't have to worry about preservatives and any other ingredients I cannot pronounce. I normally eat it with sourdough english muffin fried egg and Kraft Deli cheese. Yum!
Lol its in the pan as I type and now that it's done Oh my goodness absolutely delicious! I haven't ate pork in over 7 years and most definitely better than what's in the store. Flavors are spot on! Thank you for sharing
I haven't made this yet. I am curious what a serving size is to have it equal the nutritional value. What size/weight do you need to make the patties? Any help is appreciated. I selected a 3 star rating because it sounds delicious. I will update the review after I can make it.
