Turkey Sausage and Scrambled Eggs
with fruit parfait
These homemade turkey sausage patties are healthier and more flavorful than most commercially available breakfast sausages. Round out this breakfast-for-dinner with scrambled eggs and a coconut yogurt parfait.
- Eggs - 8
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
- Butter - 2 Tbsp
- Hot sauce (opt) - for serving
- Coconut Yogurt, paleo-friendly - 1 1/2 cups
- Berries, fresh or frozen - 1 cup (chopped if using large pieces of fruit; defrosted if frozen)
- Sage, fresh - 3 leaves, finely chopped
- Garlic - 2 cloves, chopped
- Thyme, dried - 1 tsp
- Salt - 1 tsp
- Ground turkey - 1 lb
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Make sausage seasoning - Finely chop sage and garlic. Combine sage, garlic, dried thyme, and salt (portion for sausage). (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
- 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). 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)
- Make parfaits - Divide coconut yogurt between glasses or small serving bowls. Top with berries.
- Eggs - Whisk eggs with salt and pepper.
- Heat a nonstick pan with oil over medium heat. Add sausage patties to heated oil and sear on both sides until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total. Set aside, covered to keep warm.
- To heated pan add butter and swirl in the pan until melted. Pour eggs over melted butter. Scramble, stirring gently with a spatula, until cooked to your liking, 4 to 6 minutes.
- Serve scrambled eggs with sausage patties and some hot sauce if you’d like. Enjoy parfait on the side.
Ok, so I was hesitant about this one, especially when I saw sugar being added to the ground turkey, which I was worried would get dry. Man was I mistaken. Made this as is and it was spot on. Legit tasted like an egg McMuffin, only without the accompanying belly ache since it was homemade! I've learned to trust CS over time and as usual, that paid off!3 Helpful
Didn't have eggs, so skipped that part. Probably would have made it better as the sausages - while tasty - were also dry. Calorie count was really high as well. Fun idea - the kids loved breakfast for dinner! - but likely won't make this again.0 Helpful
We made both the original and vegetarian versions (mixed eater house). Both the turkey and black bean versions were delicious, and we were glad we doubled the recipe (rather than doing half-sized versions of both recipes), so we could have leftovers.0 Helpful
We regretted not buying the parfait ingredients. We had yogurt and a banana on the side. Hubs loves the sausage recipe.0 Helpful
We loved this! The turkey patties were fantastic, I used coconut sugar in them to make them paleo, skipped the muffin and ate mine with eggs, my husband and daughter had the sandwich as written in the recipe. We also skipped the parfait and made side salads. This is a new favorite and so easy!0 Helpful
Made 6 sandwiches from the turkey instead of 4, felt like the right amount.0 Helpful
I made the sausage and precooked it in the morning so the kids could make the remainder of the meal when they came home from school. They loved the homemade turkey sausage and of course, their McMasterpiece.0 Helpful
