How To Make Turkey Sausage Patties From Scratch

Cook these turkey sausage patties perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This dish is made with lean ground turkey tossed with chives and spices.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • cooking spray
  • 1tspolive oil
  • 1small onion,diced
  • 1clovelarge garlic,chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper,to taste

  • 1lbground turkey,93% lean
  • 1tbspred wine vinegar

  • pinchraw sugar

  1. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and add the oil, onions, and garlic. Stir frequently for about 4 to 5 minutes, until onion is translucent. Lower heat, if needed, to avoid browning too quickly.

  2. Once the onion is softened, add fennel and toss quickly for about 1 minute until fragrant and toasted. Remove mixture to a medium bowl to cool slightly.

  3. Add ground turkey, red wine vinegar, chives, paprika, sugar, and nutmeg to bowl with onions, garlic, and fennel. Mix together with a fork until all ingredients are well-distributed.

  4. Form mixture into 6 even patties and lay on parchment or wax paper while working. If making ahead, patties can be refrigerated or frozen.

  5. Spray a non-stick skillet and set over medium-low heat. Once hot, brown turkey patties in two batches for 3 minutes on each side.

  6. Once a browned crust forms on each side, reduce heat to low and cover. Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

  7. Remove from heat and repeat with the second batch.
