Total time
Serves: 8-10 sausage patties
  • 1 large bay leaf
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp dry sage powder
  • ½ tsp dry thyme powder
  • 1 tsp dry mustard powder
  • ⅛ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 pound ground turkey (I used 90% lean) (You can also use ground pork or ground chicken)
  • 1 + ⅛ tsp salt or to taste
  • ¾ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  1. In a spice grinder, grind bay leaf and red pepper flakes. To it then add sage powder, thyme powder, mustard powder, grated nutmeg and give it few more pulses.
  2. Add all this spice mix to ground meat. Using your hands or a fork, mix it all together so all the spices are evenly distributed in the meat.
  3. Now cover the bowl with the mixture and let it sit in fridge for 4-6 hours so flavors intensify.
  4. Once ready, you can either cook them on skillet or grill. I cooked them on grill. I heated my indoor grill and while it was heating up, shaped up the meat into sausage patties and sausages.
  5. Then placed the shaped sausages/sausage patties directly on the grill and covered. In my indoor Hamilton beach searing grill it took just around 10 or so minutes to cook BUT make your own judgement as times will vary hugely depending on what kind of grill you are using and how hot the grill temperature is.
Ami says:
1. You can freeze half cooked sausages/sausage patties. Once these are half cooked, let them cool down fully. Then wrap them in indivisual parchment paper and place in ziplock and freeze.
2. You can also freeze them uncooked. Thaw them for like 20-30 minutes on the counter and then cook them on skillet on medium heat on both sides so they are evenly cooked.
