When I was first married, one of my favorite breakfast sandwiches to eat on a car trip was an egg, cheese and sausage sandwich.

However, the last few years, I’ve almost completely cut sausage from my diet, since it’s hard not to wonder sometimes what’s in it, but since some of the best casserole and sandwich recipes, breakfast and otherwise, contain sausage, I’ve tried seasoning ground turkey to taste like sausage.

In the past, I’ve just thrown in sage and called it done, but after searching a bit, I’ve found a great combination of spices on All Recipes.com that you can add to ground turkey to make “sausage” patties, and I adjusted it a bit to add to loose ground turkey that I can add to beans, eggs, or casseroles which call for cooked sausage.

I reduced the sugar and salt to suit our family’s tastes, and also the pepper because it was too hot for me.
