Ingredients

Homemade Breakfast Sausage —Anytime

  • 2 tablespoons Coco Treasure Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1 large clove garlic finely minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes if desired
  • 1 lb. low-fat ground turkey allowed to reach room temperature

Instructions

  1. Combine 1 tablespoon of the organic extra virgin coconut oil and all of the spices in a large bowl, mixing them into a paste. Add the ground turkey and blend the spice paste evenly into the turkey. Make sure to allow turkey to reach room temperature before mixing. The chill from cold meat will harden the coconut oil, making it difficult to mix the spices and fat evenly through the sausage. Use a 2-ounce scoop to measure out eight patties or estimate the amount needed by dividing the meat into 8 equal portions. Shape patties.
  2. Place remaining one tablespoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil in non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Cook sausage in the hot oil approximately 3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink in the center.
