These turkey sausage patties are one of my favorite ways to eat ground turkey! The seasoning in them makes them a perfect breakfast sausage option, or even a perfect meat option to add to bowls or meals. They are filling, flavorful, healthy, and easy to make. They are also naturally dairy free, gluten free, Paleo and Whole30 compliant.

I know sausage patties are usually known for breakfast, but I love using them to top big veggie bowls. If you also love one-bowl meals, try my Korean Beef Bowls.

Expert tips

  • Do not overcook the turkey patties or they will dry out. Make sure to cook them until the middle is not longer pink and there is a nice brown on either side.
  • Use turkey meat with some fat in it. This will give the patties more flavor.
  • Make sure to use the fennel seeds. These give the patties their “sausage” flavor.
