These flavorful baked turkey sausage patties are so easy to make and they are perfect for meal prep! They reheat well and they freeze well too!
As much as I love the crispy crust that comes with shallow frying sausage patties on a cast-iron skillet, I have to say that I don’t love the mess it leaves behind. Oil splatters alllll over the stovetop.
When you bake sausage patties in the oven, chances are you’ll make homemade sausage more often. Baked sausage patties make less of a mess and there’s no need to babysit a hot pan on the stove. PLUS, they can taste just as good as sausage made in a skillet! I have a little secret to getting the meat to nicely brown! Once they’re done baking, I broil them for 2-3 minutes to help caramelize the sausage. That’s it, that’s my “secret.”
I think I’m a breakfast person at heart. I love sausage. I love pancakes. I love waffles. I love eggs. I love oatmeal/n’oatmeal. Basically, I love breakfast and breakfast foods. I’m also pretty particular when it comes to seasonings and the overall flavor of food. That’s how I know you will LOVE these baked turkey sausage patties. They are very flavorful: the patties are sweet, savory and have a kick to them. There is so much flavor in these little bites of turkey sausage!
When I make sausage, I always keep extra patties in the freezer. That way, I can thaw the meat and then easily heat them up whenever I want a warm, protein-rich breakfast.
My favorite way to eat these patties? As a side to my paleo pancakes or alongside some soft scrambled eggs. I hope you love these flavorful baked turkey sausage patties as much as I do!
