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. Bacon goes really well with eggs, too. But a girl needs a little variety, even with clean bacon! Enter this clean eating turkey breakfast sausage recipe. It’s a delicious solution to the same ol’, same ol’ for breakfast!

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.

What You’ll Need

Ground turkey – You can use extra lean if you prefer, but they won’t be as good in flavor or in texture.

Garlic powder

Ground sage

Ground allspice

How To Make Turkey Breakfast Sausage

In a medium mixing bowl, mix together all the ingredients.

Form into 12 equal portions, shape into patties, and cook. You can either fry them or bake them. It’s up to you.

If frying: Coconut oil or olive oil is a great way to go.

If baking: Use parchment and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, give or take. Break one open to see if they are done cooking. I also highly recommend the use of a thermometer when cooking meat. The patties should reach at least 165 F. to be fully cooked.

    I use ginger and sage in mine. I love making my own! Most of the time I just scramble it and use it in burritos, omelets or stuffed peppers.

  3. I just have to tell you how much I enjoy all the great information that you bless us with. keep up the great work and just know you are touching people’s lives!

        CAN YOU MAKE AND FREEZE THE TURKEY SAUSAGES YOU MAKE?

        1. The Gracious Pantry says:

  4. I wonder how this recipe will be with tiny apple pieces added to this recipe, I will try that, one with and one without for breakfast for Christmas morning breakfast.

  5. andrea groom says:

    Mmmm! I never was one for the whole bacon and eggs breakfast thing, but I used to love sausage links with my weekend breakfast when I made it. Thanks for offering a healthy replacement. They will go great with my whole wheat clean pancakes!

  6. I love breakfast sausage, the protein helps to keep me full. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Garlic Girl says:

    I first saw Rachel Ray do this on Food Network and I thought…Hmmmmm! I tried it and have been hooked ever since. You can vary the spices according to your likes or dislikes. I do it when I don’t have bacon or leftover ground turkey and want to use up before go bad.

  8. Tammie Moran Smith says:

    Making homemade sausage aways seemed intimidating. You make it seem easy! I can’t wait to try this.

  9. Tiffany Hammond Christian says:

    I never thought about making my own- I’m really excited about this one. ONeo f my children doesn’t eat pork while the other 5 of us do. This sausage is cheaper, healthier, and we all can eat it. You’ve been very helpful on my journey toward “cleaner” eating.

  10. Very eager to make this for my future in-laws when the visit for the holidays! I think it would pair nicely with some french toast casserole for brunch!

  11. Stephanie Fish says:

    So thankful to find this! My boys love sausage, but I don’t like feeding it to them! I use a lot of turkey as a substitute for other meats. I like the idea of creating sausage from turkey without the added sugar and high sodium! THANK YOU!

  12. Maria E. Delgado says:

    I love making my own sausage!!
