Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich
with fruit parfait

Active: 40 Total: 40
We had so much fun recreating this fast food-inspired breakfast and hope you love making it as much as we did. Our homemade version is more delicious and a lot healthier than the drive-through favorite.
Smarts: Just for fun, if you want to make perfectly round eggs, use the metal lids from 8 oz mason jars, tuna cans with the top and bottom cut off, or a round cookie cutter to hold the eggs in place on the skillet as they cook. Spray them with nonstick cooking spray first so the eggs don’t stick.


Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich:
  • English muffins - 4
  • Butter - 2 Tbsp
  • Eggs - 4
  • Cheese, yellow or white cheddar - 4 slices
Fruit and Yogurt Parfait:
  • Yogurt, plain or Greek - 1 1/2 cups
  • Berries, fresh or frozen - 1 cup , chopped if using large pieces of fruit; defrosted if frozen
  • Granola (opt) - 1/2 cup
Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage:
  • Sage, fresh - 3 leaves , finely chopped
  • Garlic - 2 cloves , chopped
  • Thyme, dried - 1 tsp
  • Brown sugar - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Ground turkey - 1 lb
  • Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp


  1. Make sausage seasoning - Finely chop sage and garlic. Combine sage, garlic, dried thyme, brown sugar, and salt (portion for sausage). (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  2. Make sausage patties - Combine turkey and sausage seasoning until evenly combined (it’s easiest to do this with your hands). Form into 4 even patties (for 4 servings; adjust if customizing). Make the sausages wider than the English muffins because they will shrink as they cook. Form a depression in the center of each patty with your thumb (this will prevent them from rounding in the middle). (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Make parfaits - Divide yogurt between glasses or small serving bowls. Top with berries and then granola (if using).
  4. English muffins - If not already sliced in half, slice.

  1. Turn on the oven’s broiler.
  2. Place English muffins cut-side up on a sheet pan. Set aside.
  3. Heat a nonstick pan with oil over low-medium heat. (Be sure to keep the heat fairly low because the sugar in the sausage can cause them to burn if cooked over high heat.) Add sausage patties to heated oil and sear on both sides until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total (depending on thickness). Set aside, covered to keep warm.
  4. To heated pan add butter and swirl in the pan until melted. Crack eggs into melted butter. Cook eggs on one side until whites are set and yolks are still a bit runny, 4 to 6 minutes. (If you’d like the eggs more cooked, flip and cook on the other side.) In the last minute of cooking, season eggs with salt and pepper.
  5. While eggs are cooking, slide English muffins under the broiler until golden and toasted. In the last minute of cooking, top bottom halves of the muffins with cheese.
  6. Finish each English muffin with a sausage patty and a fried egg.
  7. Serve McMuffin with parfait on the side. Enjoy your homemade 'fast food' breakfast!
