Crystal's Turkey Sausage

This is an awesome make-ahead breakfast sausage. It’s easy to adapt to the spices you like, too. I like to cook mine crumbled instead of patties and almost burned. (But that’s the Cajun in me…) Oh, I also add mushrooms to mine, but I’m weird like that.

Makes: ~ 4 servings


  • 1 lb. ground meat 93% fat free

  • 1/3 onion, shredded

  • 1 carrot, shredded

  • 1 medium apple, shredded

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Divide into four equal patties.

  2. Heat sauce pan on medium-high heat.

  3. Brown patties for about 7 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through. Each patty is one serving.

Tips ‘n’ Tricks:

  • Make these up on the weekend, and store them in individual sized baggies for a grab-n-go breakfast.

  • You can completely customize the spices and vegetables to what your family prefers - try a Mexican themed sausage with cumin, chili powder, jalapeno peppers, and tomatoes.

  • Need a non-paleo idea? Chop one of these bad boys up and stuff it in a pita or tortilla with a little cheese - instant bliss.
