Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties Recipe - Easy, Quick, & Flavorful
Sausage and Turkey Burgers
This burger recipe, which uses ground turkey and sweet Italian sausage in the patties, may have been conceived as a low-fat alternative to beef burgers, but due to some shopping snafus, my burgers were juicy and full of fat. Just the way I like them! I used ground turkey that included breast and thighs, and not just the lower-fat breast meat, and I couldn't find turkey sausage so I used sweet pork Italian sausage. Served with oven fries from the freezer section.
The original recipe is here. I started by tearing up 2 pieces of regular old sandwich bread. I used whole wheat bread because that's what's in the cupboard, and it worked fine. I poured 1/4 cup milk over the bread and gave it a couple minutes to soak in. Then I mashed it a bit with my fingers before adding 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3/4 pound ground turkey and 3 sweet Italian sausage links, casings removed. I mashed that all together with my hands, then formed into patties (after wetting my hands so the patties wouldn't stick).
I made 4 small patties for the kids and 4 big ones, much smaller than the recipe directed. I heated a big cast iron skillet over medium-high heat with a bit of olive oil in it, then cooked the burgers for about 15 minutes total, flipping them once during that time. I used an instant-read thermometer to make sure the centers had reached 170F before serving. Served with lettuce, mustard and mayonnaise on burger buns.
I loved these and couldn't wait to eat one of the extra burgers the next day for lunch. They were juicy and the sweet-and-spicy sausage flavor is subtle but definitely there. The bread keeps the patties tender, even though I have a tendency to overcook. I did make the big patties too small for my big buns, but I'd rather just buy smaller buns next time. The kids ate their tiny burgers on slider buns and seemed to really like them, too.
