A delicious breakfast

So I have figured out with any diet transitions, the best way to go is with a fantastic breakfast. It makes the transition soooooooo much easier. I found a fabulous recipe and wanted to share it with everyone. Homemade turkey sausage patties!!! The best part is, you take a few of these, add some fruit and/or veggies, a handful of nuts and tah-dah! you have breakfast. These little beauties can also be wrapped up and saved in the fridge or freezer for days to come. Good luck making enough for the freezer though, they are so tasty its hard to not eat them all in a matter of a few days.

Turkey Sausage Patties

2 lbs ground turkey (can also do pork)
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp cumin, black pepper, nutmeg, ginger
pinch of red pepper flakes (more to taste)
3 tsp poultry seasoning
1-3 tsp sea salt (to taste)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
olive oil or fat of choice

Mix together all of the ingredients (except for the olive oil). Heat a healthy drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once its hot, take about 2 tbsp of the meat mixture at a time, and drop into skillet. Smoosh the meat into a patty using a spatula. Allow to cook until brown, then flip. Cook until both side are browned and meat is fully cooked. Repeat until all of the meat is done. Enjoy!

  1. another easy idea :) I have a similar recipe that uses grated apple too~which helps if you are using really, really lean turkey breast (vs. a higher fat content like 93 or 85%)
