Uncooked 93% lean ground turkey

½ pound(s)

Fresh sage

2 tsp, or 3 tsp, finely chopped

Fresh thyme

1 tsp, finely chopped

Table salt

¼ tsp, or 1/2 tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp


4 large egg(s), poached, scrambled, or fried

Cooking spray

1 spray(s)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. Using fork, gently mix until seasonings are evenly incorporated but not over mixed.
  2. Place sheet of parchment paper or nonstick foil on a work surface. Divide the turkey mixture into 8 equal portions and place on parchment using about 2 tablespoons of mixture for each. With damp hands, shape into 2 1/2-inch patties (don't worry if edges crack).
  3. Generously spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Place the patties in the skillet and cook until the sausages are lightly browned and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with eggs of choice.
  4. Per serving: 2 sausage patties and 1 egg
