What are breakfast sausages made of?
Often you will find most breakfast sausages made out of pork. For this healthy turkey sausage recipe, you’ll only need a few ingredients which most of us will have at home if we enjoy an array of cuisines.
Organic Ground Turkey: I like to use ground turkey that is 85% lean and 15% fat.
Almond flour: In this recipe, almond flour increases the quality of fat content. Consequently, the burgers remain moist when reheating!
Herbs & Spices: Most breakfast sausage recipes will call for cinnamon, sage, and red pepper flakes. In this recipe, we are using an array of spices to really build the flavors without adding too much sugar.
Maple Syrup: This is not an unusual choice for these turkey patties. We’re using real syrup here to give us that homemade breakfast sausage taste.
Garlic & Fennel Seeds: Fennel seeds and garlic always remind me of the classic sausage which gives these patties wonderful flavor.
