A quick and easy recipe for classic tasty breakfast sausage patties. Great with pancakes and eggs. This recipe has a mild to moderate zing. Increase cayenne and black pepper if you like more of a punch. Thyme may be substituted for sage, or use both.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 pounds ground turkey
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, ginger, salt, sage, cayenne pepper, and black pepper until well blended.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Form the turkey sausage into patties, and fry until browned on both sides, and no longer pink in the center. This should take about 15 minutes.
