Breakfast sausage: yes or no?
Truthfully, the answer to this question for me personally (and I’m willing to bet many of you) depends on what type of meat the sausage is made from am I right?
I’ll come out and say it: I’m not a huge pork fan. Phew, glad that’s out there.
Meaning, if my breakfast sausage needs to be made from a turkey or chicken in order for me to give it a chance.
Luckily for all of us, this simple Whole 30 Breakfast Sausage Recipe is made from lean ground turkey!
What You Will Need to Make This:
Take note, this isn’t a laborious recipe! Yay!
Meaning more time for you to enjoy the weekend if you’re whipping this up for a weekend meal prep.
Just be sure you have the following:
- 1 pound lean ground turkey or chicken
- dried sage
- dried rosemary
- dried minced onion
- garlic powder
- table salt
- ground black pepper
If you prefer fresh herbs and spices, just remember the simple equation to ensure you still have the same flavor profile:
1 tsp dried = 1 tbsp fresh
Tips On How to Make This Recipe:
To save time, I like to batch cook these in the oven for 20-25 minutes (internal temperature should be 165 degrees for turkey.)
Then, pan fry them a minute per side to get the crispy outer edges.
You can store in the refridgerator for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
Mr.CEO likes to put these on a biscuit and make a healthier McMuffin, whereas I like to have them on a bed of arugula with a fried egg!
Both are equally delicious.
Other Ways to Spice Up These Sausages
Here’s the deal: you can really make these your own!
If you prefer to have a spicier sausage, toss in some red pepper flakes.
If you want the maple flavor of your favorite store bought brand, then add in 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup. Note, this will change the added sugar content though and negate the Whole 30 if that’s what you are going for.
Last but not least, feel free to use your preferred meat of choice, even if that is pork! It’s not my jam, but it may be yours!
