Hi friends.  This homemade turkey sausage recipe is super easy to make and as an added bonus, you skip the weird ingredients and preservatives in conventional turkey sausage.  If possible, buy organic ground turkey. Ground chicken or pork would work too.


Homemade Turkey Sausage


2lbs of ground turkey
1 ½ tsp of salt
1 tbsp of brown sugar
1 tsp of black pepper
2 tsp of sage
1 ½ tsp of thyme
1 ½ tsp of marjoram
½ tsp of red pepper flakes (more if you like the spice)




1. Mix all of your ingredients together in a bowl. I use my hands so that I can get in there and mix up the spices real good.

2.  Shape into patties.

3. Cook patties in a skillet over medium heat until cooked through. Depending on the size of your patties, it will typically take 5 minutes per side.



I usually split the uncooked patties in half and eat 1lb during the week and freeze the second 1lb. The frozen patties are good to pull out individually the night before for a quick, hot breakfast before school and work. Plus, the protein will help you to stay full longer.


Give it a whirl and tell me what you think!
