Turkey Sage Sausage Patties

Let’s be honest. How many of you set a New Year’s Resolution to eat better? I am guessing a lot of Americans said that just a couple of days ago. Part of eating right is eating a balanced and nutritious breakfast. And just because it is good for you doesn’t mean that it has to be bland. This sausage is a great way to start out any morning. It is full of lean protein and does not come up short on flavor. You could even mix it the night before and quickly cook it in the morning; or if you want an even simpler morning cook it the day before and reheat it in the microwave. Any way you decide you are going to be pleased.

Turkey Sage Sausage Patties


1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

1 teaspoon rubbed sage

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 Tbls. pure maple syrup

1 pound lean ground turkey

Canola Oil for cooking


In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble turkey over mixture; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into eight patties.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat about 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add patties; cook for 6-7 minutes on each side.  If you can not easily fit all eight patties at once; cook four at a time.  You do not want to over crowd your pan.
