Spicy Turkey Sausage Patties

What’s this? Another heart-healthy recipe? Why, yes! As much as I love decadent entrees and ooey-gooey desserts, it’s not practical to eat like that every day. Truth is, I love to eat as much as I love to cook, so keeping snacks such as these spicy turkey sausage patties on hand helps keep me in line. Having baggies of them in the fridge makes for an easy, lean-protein snack any time of day–and it really does stave off hunger.

This is a recipe adapted from one that comes with the Six Week Body Makeover. The sausage is low in sodium and in fat, yet packed with lots of flavor. These sausage patties take virtually no time to throw together, and they can be eaten like this, or sometimes we make larger patties and serve them like turkey burgers. Either way, the recipe is sure to be a hit.


In a large bowl, mix together the chicken broth with all the seasonings.

I also like to make my own turkey sausage. Great idea to add chicken broth for a bit more moisture.

thanks the broth really does help keep the juice in!

These patties look so delicious and juicy! I never add broth or stock to my patties, and I think I will try it next time. I have a pack of ground turkey in the freezer, and I will try this recipe with it. Love the spice combo too 🙂

Try adding a couple of Tablespoons of tomato paste! Gives it some zest and heartiness!

Followed recipe to the tee. Just didn’t do it for me. It’s missing something.

Hi Rob–sorry to hear it didn’t work out! Could it simply be the lack of salt? I know that can be an adjustment… then once I got used to unsalted foods, everything started tasting too salty to me!
