Turkey Breakfast Sausage (Paleo and Whole30 compliant)

I am doing some diet experimentation. ¬†And trying to cut out sugar and up my protien. My biggest hurdle is breakfast. Today for a treat I made myself some breakfast sausage. I have found that whole3o and paleo recipes are great resources even if you don’t follow the plan. My original inspiration is from Primal Palate but I couldn’t find ground pork and I failed to follow the recipe, so I am presenting mine here.

It’s pretty good (for turkey sausage). The smoked paprika helps is feel a little more savory and gives it a little extra heft, makes it a little porkier.

 

Turkey Breakfast Sausage
Makes 10 patties so serves 3-5 ish

1 pound ground turkey (not turkey breast only or extra lean)
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning (or any combination of dried oregano, basil and parsley)
1/2 teaspoon smoked salt (or salt if you don’t have smoked)
2 tablespoons coconut oil (or other oil for pan frying)

  1. Combine ground turkey with herbs and spices, I use the spoon then hand method like with meatloaf)
  2. Separate in to 10 equal amounts (8 for larger patties) and form in to patties.
  3. I’m not the best at patty making, I expect it comes with practice. I did make a ball, flatten a little then squish between clean hands. Your mileage may vary.
  4. Heat cooking oil in large saute pan over med-high to medium heat.
  5. Cook the patties in two batches about 6 -7 minutes depending on thickness, flipping once. I covered the pan for the second half of cooking.
  6. Check for doneness, turkey should be cooked through to at least 165 degrees F.
  7. Remove from pan and enjoy. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
