This is exactly how I make my breakfast sausage from ground turkey only I do go a little lighter on the salt/pepper. My whole family loves this. NOTE: This can be used in just about any recipe t...

Family loved it. Only used 1 tsp of salt as husband needs to watch sodium. Also added 1/4 tsp of ground ginger. Definitely will make again, and will mix it up the night before so the flavors can...

Absolutely spot on in the seasonings for this sausage. I didn't have marjaram so left that out but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I made the Jimmy Dean Breakfast casserole with it and ...

I was looking for a good recipe to make my own sausage and this one is a GREAT starter recipe. I used all of the ingredients with the exception of the brown sugar. (Watching our sugar intake) Ho...

Best turkey sausage recipe I have ever tried, only thing I did diffrent was add a couple of minced cloves of garlic. Only because in my opinion galic goes with everything!

I love this recipe! I've tried several versions of homemade turkey sausage over the years and this one is by FAR my favorite. I made it exactly as written.

Made this twice and tweaked it just a bit. I added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder. This has great flavor. Keeper!

Best turkey sausage I've ever eaten. I put a pinch more sage in mine, because I like it that way. The brown sugar makes all the difference. I'll be making this forever.

Flavor was great! However my turkey was super dry. Not sure what I did wrong. I will use this recipe again but will use ground pork instead.
