How to Make Your Own Turkey Breakfast Sausage (Low Carb, Low Calorie, All Natural)

This is a great make ahead recipe that is seasoned the same in taste as regular breakfast sausage, but it is made with ground turkey.

These turkey sausage patties keep well for several days in the fridge and makes for a quick “grab and go” breakfast.  It also freezes great!

This recipe is very well liked in our house by the adults and kids! It is great alone, with eggs, or on low carb bread with cream cheese (my personal favorite)!

This recipe makes about 10 turkey sausage patties and has no measurable carbs in it.

This recipe can be doubled to make a large freezer batch. 

1 lb ground turkey (ground turkey, NOT ground turkey breast – that is too lean)
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Cayenne or Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Mix ingredients and then form sausage shaped patties.  Pan fry in non-stick cooking spray or a bit of olive oil until cooked though. 

*I like to put a lid on over the sausage the first 5 minutes or so before flipping the sausage – then I leave the lid off and turn up the heat to high to brown both sides.  Sometimes if I get a batch of watery ground turkey (it just happens sometimes) I’ll drain the water after it is cooked through so it will brown on high.

Here is how you can make a weeks worth of breakfast in a very short amount of time! 

Electric griddle: this is the one I own shown below:

I like it because the plug comes off and the whole griddle can be washed with soap and water.
