Breakfast meats can get a bad rap, especially when they conjure up images of greasy stacks of bacon and fat-rimmed slabs of ham. But they can actually be a clean, healthy source of lean protein! Nix some of the fat while harnessing all the good-for-you, muscle-building power of protein with this homemade turkey sausage recipe that's fit for the whole family!
Extra-lean ground turkey breast
- In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except for ground turkey.
- Place the ground turkey in a large bowl. Add spice mixture and mix by hand until well incorporated.
- Heat a skillet coated with nonstick spray over medium-high heat. Form meat mixture into 12 patties using a 1/4-cup measuring scoop. Pan-fry on both sides until they're brown and center is no longer pink.
Tip: Cover with lid when browning for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook.
