Turkey breakfast sausage patties

January 5, 2020

I switched to the purple program for the month of January, I wanted to see how I felt following it and to have experience with all 3 programs. I have followed both green (my preference) and blue so it just felt right to try out the purple program. It is definitely scary having only 16 daily points but that got me wanting to create as many low point, if not zero point meals as I could so I can save as many as my daily points for snacks and my favorite foods. These turkey breakfast sausage patties are so good, this recipe is simple and is all about those spices! It is best if you make these up the night before to let the spices really soak into the meat but if time does not allow they are still delicious. These sausage patties are 0SP on both blue & purple program and just 1SP on green.Β  This whole breakfast pictured below is 0SP on the purple program, the potatoes were cooked in the air fryer with a little cajun seasoning.


Turkey breakfast sausage patties
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
0SP blue & purple, 1SP green per pattie.. 2PP
  • 1 lb ground turkey *weighed raw
  • ½ Tbsp maple syrup *I used a sugar free one but regular is fine, it should not add any points per serving
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, diced
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 1.5 tsp fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp onion salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  1. *If time allows make the mixture the night before and let patties sit in the fridge overnight so the spices can soak into the meat.
  2. In a bowl mix together the turkey, maple syrup and all spices, mix well then divide into 6- 3oz patties. Place in sealed container in the fridge. You can cook them right away if needed just the spices really come out more when left overnight in the fridge.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and coat with some non stick cooking spray.
  4. I cooked 3 patties up at a time, cook for 3-4 minutes then flip and repeat until the patties are cooked right through, mine took about 14 minutes, time may vary depending how thin or thick you make the patties.
  5. Serve warm.. They will reheat well, and you can freeze them both cooked or uncooked.

      Thank you!

        yes you should use 99% fat free however I can’t always find it so I use what I can find and don’t stress about it, my motto is ground turkey is not why I am on WW haha

    These look delicious. Thank you. I switched to purple (as recommended) for about 1 month. It made me nervous to have so few points so I switched back to blue and I feel more comfortable.

        I’m definitely going to try these! I’ve been buying them at Walmart for my breakfast sandwiches but know they have stuff in them that’s not healthy, so I’ve been wanting to try making them myself.

    Can I ask another question please? How does ground turkey taste like sausage?
    Is it the seasonings all mixed?

        Can you use ground chicken. I assume flavor profile would be the same. There is something about the ground Turkey that I don’t like but love the ground chicken. Than You

    These look awesome! My kids always ask for turkey sausage, and I don’t like giving them the nitrate-laden frozen turkey sausage from the store. These will be great to keep in the freezer. I imagine they’d be great w/ egg and cheese on an english muffin (more points, though) w/ a little sriracha, too. thx!

        Recipe sounds terrific, but honestly I despise fennel and rarely can find sausages without that seasoning. Is there any other seasoning you would recommend since I have to replace the fennel? Love your recipes SO much … really glad you went purple for all our sakes!

          Hi Rebecca, you really can throw any seasoning in there that you like, that is the great thing with seasoning .. make it your own.. maybe some dried parsley, or Italian herb seasoning..

    You inspired me to try purple for the month of January. I love it. I’ve lost 8 lbs since then and I’m still going strong.
    I made these the first time following your recipe and they were pretty dry. Especially when reheated. I saw on a random cooking show to add shredded zucchini (squeezing out most of the water first). I tried it today and they are awesome. I love the combination of spices. Thanks for so many great recipes. I’ve been making your sweet recipes for years!

      HI Amy, depends how many I am doing but I just either coat them with some salt & pepper or cajun seasoning and then air fry at about 400F for 12-15 minutes, sometimes I add a splash of olive oil to them but you don’t need to

    Hi and let me say how much I appreciate what you do!!! Love your muffins and baked recipes!!

    I made these sausage patties today. I did leave them in the fridge overnight but I think the flavors/spices could have need a tad stronger. But that being said, I’ll definitely try again but maybe upping some of the spices! 😁

      Hi Linda, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes.. Feel free to add to the spices, everyone has different taste buds so maybe you just like them stronger πŸ™‚
