Whether you’re hunting wild turkey or just buying some from the grocery store, this recipe is one of my wife’s favorites for meal prepping breakfast. 3 lbs of ground turkey make plenty of sausage patties for fat-burning high-protein breakfasts during the week.
As a bonus, it’s super simple to make. For best results, either cook them on a cast iron skillet or grill them.
Breakfast Sausage Recipe
- 3 lbs ground turkey
- 3 teaspoons sea salt
- 2 teaspoons ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried ground sage
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar, maple syrup, or coconut palm sugar
- 3/4 teaspoons nutmeg
- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well so that all the herbs and spices get combined evenly.
Form into 12 patties. If you have a food scale, they’ll each be roughly 4oz each.
Saute in coconut oil or grass-fed butter or grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
Serving Size: One 4oz Sausage Patty (raw weight)
