Turkey Sausage Recipe

This was developed for Alpha-gal allergies. What is Alpha-gal? We tried some store bought turkey sausage and quite frankly they taste like crap. So I make my own. It is not only a good breakfast sausage, but an excellent substitute for hamburger in chili or spaghetti. Use it where you would use ground beef or pork. These are very tasty, even your meat eaters will like them. Which prompts me to have to vent a little here - Why do manufactures think that specialty diet foods ore health foods have to taste like bad, so that the consumers will think that they are actually healthy? NOT in my kitchen.

Servings: 6     Prep time: 15 min     Cooking time: 10 to 12 min
    Ready to eat in: 25 to 30 min
Utensils: Mixing bowl, plastic gloves, cookie sheet

Turkey Sausage
1 lb ground turkey
2 heaping tsp ground sage
1 clove garlic - minced
tsp salt
tsp fresh ground pepper
tsp red pepper flakes
tsp celery salt
tsp cumin


Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead until mixed well. Form into six or eight balls and press out into patties. They cook better if they are thin. Freeze ahead or fry for breakfast.

I suggest making 2 to 4 batches of sausage patties and freezing the patties for a quick breakfast item. After forming into patties and place on a cookie sheet freeze and remove to a zip top baggie. Remove the quantity you need the night before and defrost in the refrigerator.

Alternative Recipe Ideas

  • Add diced red and green peppers and diced onions.
  • Add a little maple syrup, although I am not a fan of syrup in sausage some people love it.
  • Add a little liquid smoke.
  • Use as a substitute for ground beef in chili or spaghetti.
