Maple Turkey Breakfast Sausage

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. Are you on AIP, KETO, Paleo, or have allergies? Hopefully, my blog can help. I changed my diet to improve my health. If you are wondering whether it has or not? It totally has. I have renewed energy and my health labs keep coming back as improved on all accounts. I actually can’t believe at how quickly I improved. I have been revamping my diet since Oct of 2017. What a difference!! This is just my own personal experience.

I have been writing recipes since the 1980’s. I am new to blogging and sharing my recipes. I have been writing them down for my kids as I think family recipes are an amazing gift. I have always heard people say “I wish I had my mom’s recipe for … or I wish I had my grandmother’s recipe for…” Why not start a journal or cookbook of family recipes for your family. I know that they will appreciate it.

It was my husband who first got me to write my recipes down. Prior to that, I would create a recipe and 9 times out of 10 I would forget what I did. My husband would not forget the memory or the taste of the food. He would say “Please write down your recipe.” He always asks me now “Did you write down the recipe for this?”

I wanted to create a healthier maple sausage recipe that I could enjoy with my family. When I was a kid my family had a restaurant in Ririe, Idaho it as called the European Inn. We use to make our own sausage and put them in casings. My husband’s grandparents also used to make their own sausage. So with all that family history, I thought why not create a more healthy breakfast sausage. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family.

*Nutritional Facts are listed below and based on 5 oz. per serving.

1 lb ground turkey

1 teaspoon salt

5 tablespoons maple syrup

3/4 teaspoon ground sage

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Combine ground turkey with salt, maple syrup, sage, pepper, and garlic powder. Using your hands mix the meat until thoroughly combined. Make into patties or you could get pork casings and use a sausage stuffer make sausage links instead of patties. Cook in a frying pan on medium heat 5- 8 minutes per side or until done. Remove from heat and serve. Freezes well. To freeze: place them on a pan with a little space between each one then place in the freezer for 4- 5 hours. Remove from freezer. Place wax paper between each sausage and wrap in a gallon size sealable freezer bag. Not all bags are made for the freezer. Make sure your bag is a freezer bag. Then when you want to pull out a few at a time for one or more people. Heat up in a frying pan until thoroughly heated.
