We were looking for another way to add protein to our breakfast besides just eating eggs. I found this recipe on food.com, and I played with the amount of spices and supersized it so I could make a big batch to put in the freezer.
These are SO good. You will never want to buy store bought breakfast sausage again, I promise. Here is the yummy result:
Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties
6 pounds ground turkey
2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. sage
3 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. pumpkin spice
Combine all ingredients except eggs in a large bowl and stir thoroughly. Put in the refrigerator and let flavors blend several hours or overnight.
Add two eggs and stir thoroughly immediately before cooking. (This helps keep the sausage moist.)
Form into small patties and cook in a skillet with a splash of oil over medium to medium low heat.
Cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side, until no longer pink and nicely browned on each side.
Freeze individually on a baking sheet and then move to a freezer storage bag.
Thaw in the refrigerator the night before cooking and warm in a skillet or pull straight from the freezer and reheat in the microwave.
Makes 30 to 40 servings, depending on patty size.
