Sometimes, you just gotta have some sausage with breakfast. Am I right?! That’s been my experience anyway. What else could possibly pair so well with eggs? Well, okay.

I’ve searched high and low, but I’ve yet to find a store-bought turkey sausage that qualifies as truly clean and doesn’t have any added sugar, so I decided it was high time to make my own. And the nice thing is, the sodium content won’t give you a stroke just by looking at your plate.
How many calories are in a turkey breakfast sausage?
By making your own breakfast sausage, you are able to control the ingredients that go into it. You can choose to use healthier oils and the leanest ground turkey possible.
These homemade sausage patties are approximately 57 calories each. That number can vary, depending on how large you make the patties.
You can make up a batch of these and freeze them either before cooking or after cooking. Whatever your preference is. Just be sure they are packed up air-tight to avoid freezer burn. They’ll last in the freezer for about 4 months before they start to taste funny. But the good news is, they are tasty enough to not last that long in your freezer.
