Like many breakfast proteins, sausage is typically very high in saturated fat and sodium but these sausage patties are made with ground turkey and less salt than store bought sausages making them a healthier choice. Pair a sausage with a hard-boiled egg and a piece of toast for a quick breakfast!
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 pounds ground turkey
- 1 tablespoon fennel seed
- 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- "Safe" cooking spray
1) Heat the olive oil over medium high heat in a skillet. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
2) Combine the turkey, fennel seed, rubbed sage, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Add the cooled onion and garlic mixture. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together. Measure 1/4 cup of the turkey mixture and form into a 1/4- 1/2" patty. Continue until all of the turkey mixture has been formed into patties.
3) Preheat a large skillet coated with cooking spray to medium high. Working in batches, add the patties and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Remove from the skillet and serve or cool and, in a freezer safe container, freeze for later use. Makes 15 patties.
Note: To reheat, microwave on high for one minute per patty.
