Homemade Turkey Sausage
16 (2 ounce) servings
I use this sausage to make little sausage patties for breakfast. I was looking for a sausage without such a huge fat content and with no added sugars or preservatives. This is a combination of a couple different recipes I found online. I mix up a big 2 pound batch on the weekend and then use it all week. I usually eat 2 ounces for breakfast with some eggs, but if you’re a bigger guy, definitely double that, at least.
2 pounds 93/7 ground turkey
2 teaspoons salt (I use kosher so you could 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.
