Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey (93/7 ground turkey)
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons coconut sugar optional (omit for sugar free or keto)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried marjoram
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Creole/Cajun spice
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (or 1/2 teaspoon if you want more spice)

Instructions

  • Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • While your skillet or griddle is heating up, combine the coconut sugar, spices, and herbs in a small bowl and stir together. 
  • Add the spice mixture to the ground turkey and mix together until well combined. 
  • Divide turkey mixture into 12 pieces, roll into balls, then flatten into patties. These will shrink a bit when they cook, so don't make them too thick.
  • Cook each turkey patty about 4 minutes on each side in the preheated pan or griddle until cooked through. Make sure you don't over cook these or they will be dry since they don't have as much fat in them as regular pork sausage. 
  • Cook in batches if necessary to make sure you don't over crowd your pan or griddle. 
  • Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and serve hot.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • The Creole seasoning has salt in it, so you shouldn't need to add salt to this recipe.
  • Make sure not to over-cook these since they can get dry if overcooked
  • These freeze well! You can make a big batch and freeze half for later of you want to have quick breakfast options.
