Breakfast sausage is healthier with lean ground turkey instead of pork and fresh herbs make it oh, so yummy.


  • 1lb Ground Turkey, 93% lean
  • 2 cloves Garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon Fennel Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Italian Parsley (or 1t dried)
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Sage (or 2t dried)
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Rosemary (or 1t dried)
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Marjoram (or 1t dried)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chipotle Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Fresh Ground Peppercorn Medley (or use fresh ground black pepper)
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt (avoid refined salt, it's processed with harsh chemicals)
  • 1 Egg white (optional to keep meat moister )
  • 1 tablespoon Safflower or Grapeseed Oil (optional to keep meat moister )
  • Safflower or Grapeseed Oil (expeller pressed, or other oil suited for high heat cooking)


Less meat? Cut ground turkey to 1/2 pound & add 1C cooked brown rice mixed in a food processor along with an egg white + 1T oil or 1C oatmeal processed into "flour" in a food processor added to meat with an egg white + 1T oil.


Step 1.
Set aside oil for cooking and mix all other ingredients including egg white OR oil, if using, in a bowl. Cover bowl and refrigerate overnight so that the meat can absorb the flavor of the spices - optional.
Step 2.
Shape the mixture into small patties of equal size. Meat will be sticky, you can grease you hands to make it easier to shape patties.
Step 3.
Heat skillet with expeller pressed oil suited for high heat, like Safflower or Grapeseed oil and cook sausage patties until browned, about 5 minutes. Turn patties over and brown on the other side.
Step 4.
Make sure sausage patties are cooked through but do not overcook or they will be dry since lean ground turkey does not contain all of the fat that traditional pork sausage does.
Step 5.
Serve with scrambled eggs and a big glass of unsweetened coconut or almond milk.
Step 6.
HEALTHY HINTS & QUICK TIPS: You can make the sausage and keep the meat or the patties in the refrigerator up to 5 days. You can also cook all the patties and freeze the leftovers then reheat them for a quick breakfast.
