Homemade Breakfast Sausage

Homemade Breakfast Sausage

recipe adapted from Momentum Magazine – Kate Brown


1 lb ground turkey breasts

3/4 C shredded apple (organic)

1/2 C silvered almonds

1/2 tsp dried sage, crushed

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp paprika

dash ground nutmeg


In large bowl, combine turkey, apple, almonds, sage, pepper, salt, paprika, and nutmeg. Mix well and shape into six 1/2 inch thick patties. Arrange patties on a greased broiler rack and broil 4 to 5 inches from heat about 10 minutes or until thermometer reads 165F, turning once. OR you can cook sausage over medium heat in a skillet for 8 to 10 minutes until no pink remains.

Serve with a side of in-season asparagus (drizzled with lemon olive oil) and sweet potato fries.
Have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend! Take a moment to remember those who have served and died for us.
Until next time…

Penzeys Spices – Breakfast Sausage

My sister, Kelli, introduced me to one of my new FAVORITE stores a couple weekends ago…drum roll please…
there is one in Des Moines located next to Toys R’ Us off of University

You will find ever combination of spice and herbs for every dish for every occasion!

I purchased some of their best sellers:
Italian Dressing– makes a wonderful homemade salad dressing with olive oil and vinaigrette
Fox Point– smells like butter 🙂 so good on baked potatoes or asparagus
Black & Red– the wonderful gentleman helping me threw this one in for free!!! Yipeee!!! It’s J’s fav since it is SPICY!

Chicago– have not tried yet, but will make the PERFECT steak.
Breakfast Sausage– made turkey burgers/sausage with this….YUM! Typically, just ground turkey breast can be a little bland and need LOTS of flavoring, but just a few tsp of this spice made the most amazing sausage.

Add spice to meat and mix in. I also add a little to the tops of each sausage.
Add less/more for spicy preference.
Pan fry in olive oil on medium till cooked through.

ps…these spices make WONDERFUL gifts as well.

Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
