Turkey Breakfast Sausage

SERVES: 8 – 12


  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (omit or reduce for less spicy sausage)
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons canola or olive oil


In large bowl, mix applesauce, salt, pepper, cayenne, sage, red pepper flakes, coriander, garlic powder, and onion powder. Add ground turkey; using a light touch, mix until well combined. Use approx. 1/4 cup mixture to form each patty. (Use more to form larger patties if you want them to be the size of an  English muffin.) Heat canola oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey patties; when browned, flip over and brown other side. Leaving patties in skillet, let juices that are released cook down and brown in pan. Add 2-3 tablespoons water to skillet to dissolve brown bits; as browned liquid cooks down, flip patties so they are coated in the brown liquid as they continue to cook. Remove and eat right away or freeze.
