My family loves breakfast food but some breakfast foods are not good for you. Breakfast sausage is full of unhealthy ingredients, most I can’t even pronounce & it is very easy to make a healthier version at home.
I modified a version I found on allrecipes.com. This version contains less salt, sugar & all those unpronounceable words than the packaged sausage we buy at the store. This is an advocare-friendly recipe & perfect for all our families trying to eat clean as well.
I cooked up 8 patties & we used them on Day 3 & 4 of the Advocare 10 Day Cleanse. My husband crumbled his up & put in his omelet! Perfection!
1 lb ground turkey (I used organic, but it is not always easy to find)
1 1/2 tsps ground ginger
1 1/2 tsps ground thyme
1 tsp salt (I use sea salt)
2 tsps dried sage
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Dash of red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tsps black pepper
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl & make patties with your mixture. I made 8 nice sized patties.
- Spray skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Cook patties in a skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown & no longer pink inside. Based on size, takes 8-10 minutes.
