One of the things that we enjoyed during our time in Europe was having breakfast at one of the many outdoor cafes. Europeans eat healthier breakfasts than what most restaurants here in the United States serve, so we don’t tend to go out for breakfast now that we are back home. We do, however, still enjoy a good healthy breakfast and since pork sausage or bacon can be high in calories, we decided to make a healthier alternative. We used ground turkey and spices to create a very tasty breakfast sausage that won’t leave you feeling guilty when you are done eating. It was actually really easy to make and we think that it tasted as good as store-bought pork sausage.
- 1tsp Dried Sage
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/8 tsp Dried Marjoram
- 1 lb Ground Turkey
Combine all of the herbs and then mix them in a bowl with the ground turkey. Be sure that all of the spices distribute equally throughout the ground turkey. Then, using your hands, make small patties that are each 2 to 3 ounces of ground turkey. Ours were about 2 1/4 ounces each, which resulted in 7 patties. To cook, fry the sausage patties in a skillet heated to medium-high with a couple of tablespoons of oil for about four to five minutes per side. Serve with your favorite breakfast items such as eggs and fruit.

Sounds and looks yummy. Will have to try it, but without the salt.
P.S. What is the last dried ingredient in the list, just before turkey?
It is dried marjoram. Sorry for not catching that we missed putting that in.
