Below is a recipe for sausage patties from a Christian Light Education unit. Instead of pork sausage or ground turkey I actually used ground chicken thigh. The pictures are below along with a YouTube video from DivasCanCook.com that uses ground turkey. I thought the recipe still tasted great with the ground chicken instead of the ground turkey. This is nice for breakfast and could work as mini hamburgers for lunch. Definitely a recipe worth trying and it is not too difficult to make. It just takes a little extra time compared to buying pre-packaged.
- 1 egg
- 1 lb pork sausage or ground turkey
- 1 t each salt, marjoram, sage
- 1/2 t black pepper
- 1/2 c quick oats
Beat the egg. Add ground meat, seasonings, and oats. Mix thoroughly. Shape into eight or ten flat patties. Fry over low heat, turning once to brown meat on both sides. For pork, add no oil to the skillet. For turkey, add two tablespoons of oil. Hint: Shape meat into balls then flatten with a metal spatula.
