How to Make these Turkey Breakfast Sausages

  • Place the turkey in the freezer for 20 minutes to make it easier to work with.
  • Combine the turkey with the maple syrup and fresh herbs.
  • Either form into sausage patties, or line a baking sheet with parchment paper and thinly spread the mixture. Use a biscuit cutter to cut uniform sausages and set aside with a spatula.

  • Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat and transfer 2-3 sausages at a time to the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F. Repeat until all of the sausages are cooked.
  • Serve fresh or store in the fridge for a meal prep breakfast.

 

How long will these turkey breakfast sausages last in the fridge?

These sausages will easily last in the fridge for 3-4 days which makes them the perfect meal prep breakfast to prep on the weekend and serve throughout the week! I like to store them together in glass Tupperware, or you can prepare a fully prepped breakfast with the sausages, and a side like sweet potato hashbrowns in a Tupperware for a grab and go breakfast!

 

Can you freeze the turkey breakfast sausages?

The freezer is a secret weapon for efficiency in the kitchen! I love freezing food that I’ve batch cooked or having prepped/uncooked food in the freezer for easy cooking.

You can wrap the prepared sausages tightly and store them in the freezer for ease. You can also freeze them raw and cook them later, however, you can only do this is the turkey is fresh and not previously frozen!

The Ingredients for the turkey breakfast sausages

Ground turkey

I love getting ground turkey from my local farmer, Rehoboth Ranch and highly recommend it if you’re in the Dallas area! You can also use something like ground chicken.

Maple syrup

Maple syrup adds tons of that breakfast flavor to these sausages!

Sage, rosemary, and thyme

You can use dried versions of these seasonings, but I love using them fresh!
