Homemade Turkey Sausage

This is a very nice recipe. I substituted fresh, finely minced garlic and sweet onion for the garlic powder and onion powder. This added moisture and texture, so the patties weren't dry. A small amount of dried sage was also added, which made the patties taste just like regular pork breakfast sausage. My family didn't even know these were actually turkey!

Very tasty and easy breakfast using frozen patties from this recipe. I intend to make even more sausage and freeze it. Yummy!

i made turkey sausage and it was very dry is there something i can do to prevent the dryness ? Dietitian comment: You could add either applesauce or olive oil to increase moisture.

I'm going to try this recipe since I can't have regular sausage. Sometimes I want meat for breakfast.

Based on comments by others I added some sage to mine. Haven't tried one yet. If you want to easily make them all the same size, each one is 2 Tablespoons of meat after adding spices .

I tripled the recipe and added 1lb ground pork, but kept the fennel to 1 tsp, added 2 tsp paprika, 3 tsp sage, made into patties and froze them. Great for quick breakfast with egg as mcMuffin.

I made the sausage patties using half ground turkey and half ground pork. they were very dry. Next time I will try just using pork.

Although I have yet to make this, adding the sage and perhaps a few grains of cayenne pepper would make this very good.

My wife has made this for a couple of years now and I think that it is terrific. I got her to use 2 tsp. sage instead of the fennel seed. I love sage in it. Not greasy either.

I have made this recipe many times. It has a good flavor and is so much healthier than regular sausage.

I used the same measurments for 1/2 lb. of turkey & it turned out great. I loved not having all that grease.

This was ok but needed something more to give it more of a sausage flavor.
