Turkey breakfast sausage made with fresh herbs and real maple syrup is perfect for breakfast sandwich meal prep as well as Sunday family breakfast. These patties are incredibly delicious.
They are a great balance between sweet and savory with a rich maple flavor you can only achieve with pure maple syrup and only 1 WW SP a patty.
I love to prep a big batch of folded eggs along with bacon or sausage at the beginning of the week. I mark them, and my wife and I (both high school English teachers) grab one each morning.
These sandwiches are also freezer-friendly. Having a full week’s worth of breakfast prepped in advance makes us feel like real adults, which is a plus.
Kid-friendly and delicious breakfast sausage
I love center-cut bacon for my breakfast sandwiches, but I have always and will always choose sausage over bacon on any given day–at least when I’m throwing caution to the wind and eating whatever I want.
I never found a turkey breakfast patty I really liked. Sure, there are plenty of frozen ones out there, but I try to keep the preservatives and strange ingredients to a minimum–especially for my kids.
As you probably know if you follow my Instagram, I have one daughter who is a bacon thief. Our oldest loves bacon, but BOTH of my daughters will eat their weight in breakfast sausage if I let them. With this turkey sausage recipe, I’d feel less bad if they did that.
Now, sure you can add these to English muffins, but who wants bland English muffins when you can have buttery, flaky biscuits? Find my biscuit recipe and breakfast sandwich meal prep tutorial here to live your best meal prep life.Print
