Recipe of the Month – August, 2021

Maple Sage Breakfast Sausage


19 oz ground turkey or chicken
1 tsp dried sage
½ tsp dried thyme
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp salt
Freshly cracked pepper
1 tbsp cooking oil


1.) Add the ground turkey, sage, thyme, garlic powder, smoked paprika, maple syrup, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper to a bowl.  Use your hands to mix the ingredients together until the ground turkey is evenly seasoned.

2.) Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, portion and shape the ground meat mixture into patties.  After measuring out ¼ cup, make sure to flatten the patties until they are very thin, as they’ll shrink inward and get thicker in the center as they cook.  The shaped patties should be about 3 inches wide.

3.) To cook the maple sage breakfast sausage, add 1 tbsp cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium.  Once hot, add the sausage patties (working in two batches if needed to prevent over-crowding the skillet) and cook 3-5 minutes on each side, or until browned on the outside and cooked through.  Serve hot.
