How to make your own breakfast sausage, quickly and easily

I mentioned in the recipe for the breakfast cups a few days ago that I had made my own bulk turkey breakfast sausage. In case some are interested, I thought I would share how I did it.  I've been using this recipe for years with pork, and decided to try it with turkey.


2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1 pound either ground turkey or ground pork

In a bowl, combine water and seasonings.  Add ground meat and mix very well. 

This can be formed into patties and cooked immediately, for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or it may be crumbled and used in any recipe that calls for bulk breakfast sausage. 

I hope you'll enjoy this yummy breakfast sausage as much as we do!


  1. And you make your own sausage?! I can actually see where this would be much faster and less expensive, too, for many applications. Have a super day, Mrs. T!

    1. It is really delicious, Vee, and not much trouble at all!

  2. Never thought of doing mine. Thank you for this recipe
