Turkey Sausage

Jan 21, 2011


I found a great substitute for pork breakfast sausage. I usually crumble and brown it all at once and freeze it until needed. It's good crumbled in breakfast burritos, spaghetti, on pizza, or made into patties.


Turkey Sausage


2 lbs ground lean turkey (I usually use a combo of 99% FF and 85% to get good flavor)
1 1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Crumble turkey into a large bowl. Add seasonings; mix thoroughly. {You can use latex gloves or your Kitchen-Aid to make mixing easier.} Shape into 2 1/2 in patties (or not). In a large skillet, cook patties or crumbles over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until it is all cooked through (no longer pink). Drain on paper towel-lined plated or bowl.

Tip: If you use all 99% fat-free turkey, add a little olive oil to pan before cooking.

  1. Christy, we also do not eat pork and only eat fish with fins and scales (salmon, tuna, halibut, etc.). This was because we were in a church that was teaching OT laws on NT Christians, but thankfully God showed us that was not correct, but we still think it is a healthier way to eat. BTW, Jennie-O makes a great Italian Turkey Sausage, but I take it out of the casings, and then it can be crumbled almost like it's ground turkey. It has great flavor. Have a great weekend!

  2. Visiting from the blog hop. Thanks for the recipe. Funny enough, for my husband's birthday he wanted a sausage grinder and a book on making our own sausage.
    Have a blessed weekend.

  5. This is so ironic! I just made "turkey sausage" for supper tonight. I added ground fennel, basil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and red pepper flakes. Turkey is a great substitute for pork. It even fooled my hubby! I'll have to try the ginger next time. I love ginger!
