Turkey Breakfast Sausage

This is the best turkey sausage EVER!!!!!!!  These are great by themselves or used with Whole Wheat Biscuits to make sausage biscuits.

Turkey Breakfast Sausage
Yeilds:  12 patties
Serving size:  1 patty
Weight Watchers:  2 pp+

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (omit or reduce for less spicy sausage)
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil - I used organic Pam spray

  1. In large bowl, mix applesauce, salt, pepper, cayenne, sage, red pepper flakes, coriander, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  2. Add ground turkey; using a light touch, mix until well combined.
  3. Use approx. 1/4 cup mixture to form each patty.
  4. Heat canola oil in skillet over medium-high heat.  - I used olive oil Pam
  5. Add turkey patties; when browned, flip over and brown other side, until juices run clear.
  6. Remove and eat right away or freeze.

TO FREEZE the cooked patties: let cool, place it in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze. Transfer frozen patties to plastic bag. To thaw 1-2 patties, place on small plate & microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, flip patties and repeat for 30 seconds more, or until heated through.
