Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage

I was surfing around the web today, looking at recipe blogs – and man, there are some really great ones out there! I was really impressed by the quality of the writing, pictures and variety of recipes, I’m feeling like a very small fish swimming with dolphins!

While I was looking around I came across a recipe that I really have to try. This recipe for Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage, as well as the picture, came from Cora Cooks. She has a terrific site so wander over – you won’t be disappointed.

This sausage sounds not only tasty but also healthy – I have to give it a try, how about you?


Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage


  •  1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


Combine salt, pepper, fennel seeds, sage, and crushed red pepper in a bowl and stir to blend. Add ground turkey and mix with hands to combine. Add maple syrup and mix with hands again. Shape and flatten into 3″ round patties.

Heat skillet on medium and add olive oil. Cook sausage patties about 5 minutes until lightly brown on one side and turn to brown on second side. Remove sausage patties and drain on paper towels. Serve warm. Makes 6 – 8 small patties.
