How to make Turkey sausage?

  • Black pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • Garlic powder
  • Lean ground turkey (93% lean)
  • Olive oil


  1. In a bowl add 3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt, 3/4 teaspoon of rubbed sage, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder.
  2. Whisk or stir to combine.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the ground turkey and the spice mixture. Stir until combined and be mindful not to over mix.

  7. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and, working in batches, cook the turkey sausage patties for 3 to 4 minutes per side. If needed, add more oil.
  9. Drain on a paper napkin and repeat with the remaining sausages.
