A few years back I set out to make you a meal prep breakfast that wasn’t just eggs or oatmeal (though I do love both). Since I’m a huge fan of restaurant-style breakfast sausage, I decided to make you a delicious, healthy version of sausage patties with juicy blueberries and a hint of sweet maple syrup.

These maple blueberry turkey sausage patties are filled with lovely herbs and spices and are bursting with blueberries in every bite. They’re super easy to make and freezer-friendly, too, so here’s your sign to skip the Jimmy Deans and keep a stack right in your freezer!

I’ll leave you with a little excerpt from my original blog post, which still holds true:

“Old episodes of Felicity are playing as I write this post. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then disregard, but if you love Felicity, I have to know — are you Team Ben or Team Noel?!

I will forever love Ben and believe these blueberry turkey sausage breakfast patties are just as dreamy as he is.”

These sausage patties are still just as dreamy. I hope you love them!

What makes these turkey sausage patties healthier?

Compared to their pork sausage counterpart, these homemade turkey sausage patties are much leaner and have less fat than the traditional pork version. However, they definitely don’t skimp on juiciness! They have incredible flavor, are freezer-friendly and cook up in less than 10 minutes.

Ingredients in this blueberry breakfast sausage

These deliciously juicy turkey sausage patties are filled with flavorful herbs and spices, plus a wonderful hint of sweetness. Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

  • Ground turkey: because these are turkey sausage breakfast patties, you’ll need some 93% lean ground turkey.
  • Maple syrup: these sausage patties get a hint of sweetness from pure maple syrup.
  • Herbs & spices: add amazing flavor with fresh garlic and sage, dried thyme, ground cumin, ground ginger, allspice, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper.
  • Blueberries: you’re going to LOVE the bursts of blueberries in every bite. Feel free to use fresh or frozen!
  • Oil: you’ll need a little olive oil or coconut oil to cook the sausage patties.

The key to keeping turkey sausage moist

You may be wondering how to keep these turkey sausage patties from drying out upon cooking, and I’ve got the answer! It’s critical to use a 93% lean ground turkey. If you use too lean of turkey meat, the patties will end up tasting dry. A little fat adds flavor and moisture, so be sure that you do not use extra lean ground turkey or ground chicken.

How to make blueberry turkey sausage

  1. Mix the patties. Start by adding all of the ingredients besides the blueberries to a large bowl and mix everything well with clean hands. Then, carefully incorporate the blueberries into the turkey sausage mixture.
  2. Shape the patties. Form 8 even-sized patties about 1/3 inch thick. Make sure the blueberries are nice and tucked into them so that they don’t pop out while cooking.
  3. Cook & flip. Cook the turkey sausage patties in a skillet with a little oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Then flip and cook 4-5 minutes more until they’re fully cooked.
  4. Serve & devour. Serve your blueberry breakfast patties warm with all of your go-to breakfast sides! See below for plenty of inspo.

Storing tips

Store any leftover breakfast sausage patties in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Simply reheat them in the microwave or on a skillet when ready to serve.

Make them ahead and freeze for later

  • Freeze before cooking: shape your turkey sausage patties and place them in an airtight, freezer-friendly bag or container. If you’re stacking the patties I’d recommend putting wax or parchment paper in between the layers so that they don’t stick together. Freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, you can either let them thaw in the fridge before cooking or cook them directly from frozen – you may just need to cook them a bit longer from frozen.
  • Freeze after cooking: let your breakfast patties cool completely before placing them in airtight, freezer-friendly containers or bags. As I mentioned above, put wax or parchment paper in between the layers of patties if you’re stacking them. Freeze them for up to 3 months. To reheat, let them thaw in the fridge before reheating in the microwave or on the stovetop for a couple of minutes on each side. You can also reheat these directly from frozen – I recommend doing so on the stovetop.
