Turkey or ground beef sausage patties

This is my sausage recipe for making breakfast sausage patties at home and saving a ton of $$! The two pictures above are the way I package them for freezing. I make about 4 large hamburger sized patties for burgers or spaghetti sauce. I package the breakfast patties 4 to a plastic bag.


2 to 3 lbs Ground Turkey, hamburger, or pork

1 tsp. Ground Ginger

3 tsp Dried Sage crumbled or powdered

1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 tsp Black Pepper

2 tbs Maple Syrup (optional)

1 tsp Ground Fennel or Whole Fennel Seeds

We have added these extra ingredients because we like these spices

1 or 2 tbs Italian spice

1 tps Paprika

1 tbs Garlic Powder

The recipe I use calls for salt, but we both are on a low salt diet. Your choice.

I mix all the spices together in a small bowl, put the burger in a large bowl, and sprinkle small amounts of the mixed spices on and mix. I use my hands, you can wear gloves, we all should have them now. I keep mixing the spices in with my hands until all spice is used and mixed thoroughly.

I make them into small patties, heat a frying pan with olive oil and brown them on both sides. Set the patties aside until cool and wrap in plastic wrap or use sandwich packages for storage. I freeze them and take them out the day before I need to cook them.

I keep a package in the fridge for a quick protein snack.

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.
