Since I workout in the morning, breakfast is pretty much my biggest meal. I always like to make sure I get plenty of protein and carbs in this meal, but I don’t really like to eat non-breakfast foods either. I love eggs and almost always have those, but sometimes I like to throw in some sausage or ham as well. I was looking for a sausage without such a huge fat content and with no added sugars or preservatives. This sausage recipe is a combination of a few different recipes I found online. I mix up a big 2 pound batch on the weekend and then use it all week.
Makes 16 (2 ounce) servings
2 pounds 93/7 ground turkey
2 teaspoons salt (I use kosher so you should use a little less if you’re using normal salt)
1 1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried fennel, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (you can increase this to make it spicier)
Mix everything together!
When you’re ready to cook, heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Shape turkey into little patties (I usually make them about 1 ounce each). Cook until they are nice and browned on each side and no longer pink in the middle, about 6 minutes.
