This Breakfast Sausage Recipe is a healthy alternative to traditional sausage. Extra lean turkey (read the label to make sure), apples and brown rice form a healthy base while thyme, cayenne pepper and allspice provide bold flavor.
- 1 tart apple, peeled, cored and shredded
- 1/2 Cup of brown rice, cooked
- 2 Tbsp onion, grated
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 tsp sage
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/8 tsp allspice
- 1 lb. extra lean ground turkey
Toss apples with rice, onion and garlic in a large mixing bowl.
Season with sage, salt, pepper, thyme, cayenne pepper and allspice.
Crumble the ground turkey into the mixture and blend with your hands.
Form 8 patties.
Coat a skillet with cooking spray and cook the patties over medium heat.
Cook for 5 minutes, flip and cook another 5 minutes.
Patties are done when juices run clear after being poked with a fork.
