I love sausages in the morning. And for a while, I was eating a breakfast sausage that I found at Whole Foods that seemed pretty okay in the ingredient department. But over time, the more I ate them, the more I felt like I somehow wasn’t getting the best nutrition at breakfast. So rather than give up sausage patties, I created this low carb turkey breakfast sausage patties recipe. It’s tasty and I feel a lot better about what I’m eating.
The best part is that you can make large batches of these and freeze them. Either before you cook them or after. Either way. And if for some reason you want to keep the fat low, you could bake these instead of frying them in a skillet. But most low carb eaters I know want the fat content. So be as liberal as your eating plan allows when it comes to the oil.
I love mine served with eggs over medium and a chopped up avocado. I get plenty of protein and fiber along with a healthy dose of fats. This particular balance always gets my morning off the the best start. I really don’t feel well if my breakfast is anything else. So I stick with it!
And honestly, for me, there’s nothing like that liquid gold lava from my over medium egg dripping over my sausage patties. I love it!! Me and Mini Chef both close our eyes and have a “magic moment” when the yolk and the meat blend together in our mouths. The taste and texture are simply divine.
