Turkey Sausage Fake-Out

Some people love bacon.

Others, prefer sausage with their breakfast.

As much as I love bacon now, I actually wasn't a fan when I was growing up, and I didn't develop a real love and appreciation for bacon until I was in my twenties.  So whenever we would go out for breakfast, I always got sausage with my eggs and hashbrowns.

My husband, however, is not a huge fan of sausage.  He will occasionally eat it if it is crumbled into the eggs and hasbrowns, but he won't touch it if it's in a patty or link form.

He will, however, eat this Turkey Sausage Fake-Out, and has asked me to make it more than once.  Ground Turkey is turned into "turkey sausage" with the help of just a few simple herbs and spices, and works great in a pinch.  You can even add some red pepper flakes or chili powder if you want some heat behind it.  It is totally customize-able!

Turkey Sausage Fake-Out


1 pound Ground Turkey
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp rubbed sage
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp fennel
1/4 ts pepper


In a large bowl, combine the turkey, salt, sage, ginger, fennel and pepper until thoroughly mixed (use your hands to make sure all the spices are well incorporated).  Form into patties (if you want patties).

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Place the patties (or just the ground meat) into the skillet.  If making patties, cook on each side for about 2 minutes until cooked throughout and brown on each side.  If making ground sausage, break up the pieces and cook until everything is browned and cooked through.
