I think this is the most excellent and healthy way to eat breakfast sausage. Low fat and better for you heart! I usually double or triple my recipe and freeze the patties for future meals or snacks! Very inexpensive to make. Did I mention they are so yummy!

I can help. Sausage needs fat & you just can't get around that BUT there are many choices of fats ! Ground turkey thighs will have more fat to keep the sausage moist but you are giving up some "health" & if you can find ground thighs, the strong flavor may be getting too far away from a sausage taste. If you use breast meat, adding 4 to 5 tablespoons of oil (I like Olive Oil) to this recipe will give you around 10% fat which is still very lean but you can have a healthy fat. To keep the fat in the meat where you need it, add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch & you will have juicy sausage with a velvety texture while using a healthy type & percentage of fat.
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey
