Not only were these turkey breakfast sausage patties really easy to make, but they are also made without any chemicals or preservatives that you would normally expect to find in processed and frozen version. This recipe does have a small amount of sugar in it from the breakfast sausage spice blend that I used from Penzeys, so if you are doing a sugar free diet, keep that in mind. Personally, I’m not going to obsess about the miniscule amount of sugar in the spice blend that used for the entire batch of patties. Especially when paleo friendly desserts and even a breakfast smoothies filled with fruit will have a lot more sugar. That being said, I didn’t want to accidentally break someone’s diet or sugar free cleanse. You can always make your own sugar-free breakfast sausage spice blend, but it might not taste the same, since breakfast sausage tastes a bit sweet. Plus, I’ve been wanting to try this spice blend for awhile. It’s been neglected in my pantry for ages.
My husband and I were very happy with the results. They were easy to make and tasted like breakfast sausage, and since we both love breakfast, we will likely use this recipe quite a bit. They best part is that these can be made ahead and frozen, similar to meatballs. I used almond flour and an egg to bind the ground turkey together before baking. I also add some fresh herbs, because what recipe doesn’t deserve some fresh herbs?
- 1.5 lbs ground turkey
- ½ cup of blanched almond flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
- 3 tbsp fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
- 1.5 tbsp breakfast sausage seasoning (Penzeys)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
- In a large bowl, add ground turkey, chopped rosemary and parsley, and breakfast sausage seasoning.
- Then crack in one large egg, and mix with hands.
- Then add blanched almond flour, until ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Line a cookie sheet with foil for easy clean up and grease it with olive oil.
- Form mixture into patties and line them on cook sheet.
- Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature is at least 165 F degrees.
