I made America’s Test Kitchen’s turkey breakfast sausage before, but it took a lot of work cooking and re-cooking the meat. Well, more work than I would care for just for some sausage. So, here is a recipe I came up with throwing things in and it tasted really good and pretty close to regular breakfast sausage, minus the pork grease. The kids loved them and gobbled them up without knowing the difference. I put them on a 100% whole wheat biscuit which will be the next recipe.
These could be shaped into patties, used in a casserole, added to a frittata, etc.
Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage
yield 1 lb.
1 lb. ground turkey
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried sage (don’t leave this one out!!)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for kids)
1 and 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. coriander
1. Mix it all up in a big bowl.
2. Cook on medium to medium-high heat in a skillet.
This sounds fantastic and one recipe I’m going to have to try! I love breakfast sausage but often don’t eat it because of the high fat content.

Yes, ground pork is pretty high in fat. Fat is great for you, in moderation of course. I make my own to avoid the MSG or BHA that most manufacturers add to their pork sausage. Even the “homemade” stuff at our local grocery store uses BHA in it.

Thank you for this recipe. I pinned it ages ago and just made it this weekend. Made the sausage and then used it with gravy for sausage gravy and biscuits. I added more of the same spices to the gravy. Fantastic!

Thank you! Yes, I end up with pins that sit for quite a while as well! Glad you enjoyed it.
