    In an effort to keep my body fueled for my morning workouts and busy days chasing around little boys, I like to start the day with a high protein, low carb breakfast. While I almost always have eggs around, I had been itching to create my own homemade turkey breakfast sausage patties.

    Made with slightly toasted fennel seeds and just a bit of pure maple syrup, these breakfast sausage patties couldn’t be easier to make. Not only are they way more flavorful than anything I’ve purchased in a package but they are a lot more affordable when you make them yourself. Plus, you get to control the quality of ingredients which is always important to me.

    1. Thank you for posting this, Liz! I’ve had thoughts of making my own breakfast sausage for some time now, but haven’t done anything about it. I really don’t care much for the commercial sausage patties, especially the turkey ones. So I’m looking forward to trying these.
