Turkey and Sage Breakfast Patties

Turkey and Sage Breakfast Patties

These savory Turkey and Sage Breakfast Patties, flavored with fresh herbs and spices, are a great way to add healthy protein to any breakfast. Quick and easy to make, they cook up in no time. Serve the patties by themselves, with some leafy greens, or as a tasty breakfast sandwich with coconut bread.

To save preparation time, double the recipe and freeze the extra patties in a single layer on parchment paper. Then, stack the frozen patties with a layer of parchment paper between each one, and store in a resealable freezer bag. Remove the patties from the freezer as needed.

This recipes includes two ingredients – onions and olive oil – that are on our antifungal foods list. Both of these can help to normalize your gut flora and restore a healthy balance to your gut. By incorporating foods like these into your diet, and limiting the sugar that you eat, you can take a big step towards beating your Candida overgrowth.

One of the best things about this dish is that it will give you sustained energy throughout the morning. Rich in healthy proteins, it won’t spike your blood sugar like a bowl of breakfast cereal. That means you’ll still be going strong when lunchtime comes around.

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh sage, finely minced (or 1 tsp. dried sage, crumbled)
  • 1 Tbsp. green onions, finely minced
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp. dried garlic flakes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. olive or coconut oil
  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until just combined (over-working the mixture will make the patties tough).
  2. Divide mixture into eight equal portions. Form into 1/2 inch thick patties, set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties, four at a time, about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until they are nicely browned and cooked through. Repeat with remaining patties. Serve.

    I’m a young African American female who had symptoms of recurrent yeast infections. I’m trying new things in my diet and this receipe was surprisingly very good. I had this with organic advocads, eggs and tomatoes.

    Used 1/2 tsp ground sage, 1/2 tsp ground thyme and 1/2 ground garlic powder because that’s what I had on hand. Omitted green onion due to not having any but will try next time. I am sure it’s tasty as listed.

    I made these today and they came out so delicious and flavorful! I had to make some modifications and used 1/4 tsp. of ground sage (couldn’t find dried sage) and used 1 clove of fresh garlic, minced (couldn’t find the garlic flakes).
    So good!
    I’m definitely using this recipe again!

    Delicious, a mild sausage good for any meal. Cooked in my wrought iron skillet they also looked beautiful. Will make again. For a change, a few added spices will give a bolder flavor and take no more time.

    This is a nice blend of spices for turkey (or chicken) patties, for whatever meal. Have some patties for breakfast, or a light green salad mix with cherry tomatoes, onion, and the Mediterranean Zucchini Dip as a topping for the patties. I and Mrs. Gentleman will be having that again.

    Made these today and they are fairly quick to put together. Liked using fresh sage. May add one more spice/herb to strengthen the flavor but overall very good.
