Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties are so Much Better when Homemade


These turkey sausage breakfast patties are more tender, like meatballs, thanks to the soaked breadcrumbs. And unlike store-bought, you control the ingredients to ensure they are dairy-free, and allergy-friendly as needed. In the morning, we prefer homemade sausage like this. It tastes cleaner, and far less processed, than pre-made brands.

Make Healthy Mornings Easy with Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties

This recipe is a variation on the Lean Sage Breakfast Sausage Recipe in Eat Dairy Free: Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and Sweets. This version incorporates bread crumbs, and has a different blend of herbs and spices.

If you plant to make these turkey breakfast sausage patties often, you can make a bulk batch of the seasoning. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup dried parsley, and 1 teaspoon each dried sage, crushed fennel seeds, marjoram or oregano, salt, and pepper. Use a scant 2 1/2 tablespoons of the seasoning per batch.

You can also freeze these turkey breakfast sausage patties – raw or cooked. Tony prefers to freeze them raw, so he can cook them fresh. But if you need a quicker breakfast, you can pre-cook them and flash freeze.

This healthy, lean breakfast sausage is very easy to make. I prefer to use 90% lean ground turkey for more tender results. If you use ground turkey breast, the patties will be a little drier. If preferred, you can use all or part lean ground pork instead!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3 servings
  • ¼ cup dairy-free bread crumbs (gluten-free, if needed)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
