When I'm cooking for a crowd, I always make an extra batch because these turkey sausage patties disappear from the platter fast. Some of my guests have even been known to drizzle them with maple syrup. Serve with our Sweet Potato Pancakes or as a hearty companion to eggs. Or slip them inside a toasted pita smeared with Cranberry-Pineapple Chutney, or filled with shredded lettuce, chopped onions, and sundried tomatoes.

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 lbs. coarsely ground turkey, preferably light and dark meat
