Homemade Breakfast Sausage


  • ½ lb ground pork
  • ½ lb ground turkey
  • 2 tsp natural sugar (Sugar in the Raw or Turbinado) - or brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sage
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes, optional
  • very small pinch of cloves


  • In a small bowl, whisk the spices together
  • In a larger bowl, add the ground turkey and pork
  • Mix the spices into the meat, using a large rubber spatula or your hands. Work in a folding motion, instead of squashing or smashing (leaving the ground texture in-tact).
  • The sausage can be cooked as is or formed into patties. You can also freeze the fresh sausage, wrapped tightly with plastic wrap and bagged in a Ziplock bag, for up to 3 months
