I love having this on hand for breakfast.  You can also use this as the sausage for Sausage and Peppers.  If you like a spicy sausage, add a generous pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.  If you like it a bit sweeter, add 2 Tablespoons maple syrup.  Do not use the really low fat ground turkey, or the sausage will be too dry.

The Recipe: Homemade Turkey Sausage


  • 20 oz. package ground turkey
  • 4 Tablespoons finely minced onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon sage
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg, optional


  • Mix all ingredients. Shape into patties. I usually use about 1/4 to 1/3 scoop to divide the meat. Place onto a cookie sheet lined with plastic wrap or parchment. Place into the coldest part of the freezer. After the sausage patties have frozen, place them into a freezer bag or container separated with waxed paper. Remove as much air as possible, seal and freeze.
  • To serve: Thaw or cook from frozen. Put into a skillet that is lightly oiled. Cook until golden on each side and cooked through.
