Jamie Eason's Post-Pregnancy Recipes: Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Meat patties can be a great addition to any morning meal. Learn how to make them from scratch with all the protein and much less fat!

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
2 lb.

3/4 tsp

1 tsp

1 tsp

Cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp

Black pepper
1/4 tsp

  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except for ground turkey.
  2. Place the ground turkey in a large bowl. Add spice mixture and mix by hand until well incorporated.
  3. 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.

  4. Tip: Cover with lid when browning for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook.
