Turkey Sausage Patties

With me following the Atkins diet since the start of 2012, I've tried to come up with a breakfast protein to accompany eggs. Bacon is fine but I'd love to have something with less fat.

Solution: homemade turkey sausage patties using ground turkey and a few spices.  I fry them in a non-stick pan or on the George Foreman grill.

  • 1.5 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • In a large bowl place the ground turkey and then all the spices on top.
  • Mix with your hands until well blended. You can use a food processor as well.
  • Heat a frying pan or non-stick grill or griddle.
  • Form the turkey mixture into patties and brown on both sides to 165 degrees or no longer pink in the center.  About 10 minutes.
Makes about 10 patties
