I’m all about some breakfast sausage! And it’s really hard to find any that is Whole30 compliant…with no sugar and no added “crap” in it. So I decided to try to make my own & I’m so glad I did! This was really easy to make & it tastes delicious! I also think the recipe would be easy to make and freeze if you wanted to use the patties at a later time. This was my first time making these, so I am sure I fill find some better tips and tricks along the way & I will certainly share when I do! If you have any suggestions to make it better, just leave a comment to help everyone!
I also feel like you can add in any other spices/flavorings that you love to change this recipe up from time to time! This is just the one I used for now, so I wanted to share. If I start adding new things in, I’ll definitely update this post!
1 lb. ground turkey (or chicken or pork) — I bought mine at our local butcher. Be sure to check the ingredients if you are doing the Whole30 program to make sure that it does not have any added “stuff” in it!
1 tbsp. organic garlic powder
1 tbsp. organic sage
1 tbsp. fennel seed
1 tbsp. sea salt
1-2 tbsp. ghee or any cooking oil of your choice (Olive oil or coconut oil would work really well with this too)
Optional: 1 tbsp. Flavor God “Everything” seasoning (This is not necessary at all, but it made the flavor THAT much better!)
1) Put all ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl and mix with your hands (wear gloves if possible!)
2) Roll into about 2 inch balls. Pat down to form a patty. You should get approximately 10-12 patties.
3) Heat frying pan with ghee. When the pan is hot, cook the patties 4-5 at a time. (The bottoms should get crispy and you can flip when they do.) **If you prefer to bake these, you definitely can!
4) Cook thoroughly. There should be NO pink. Your best bet is to use a meat thermometer and make sure the meat is at or above 165F either way you decide to cook these.
