Sage Turkey Sausage with Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms

Sage Turkey Sausage with Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms


4 ounces lean ground turkey breast

1 Tablespoon fresh sage leaves, finely chopped

¼ teaspoon dried thyme

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons extra-virgin coconut oil, divided

½ cup grated sweet potato

2 large white mushrooms, sliced


In a small bowl, combine turkey, sage, thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper, mixing until seasonings are distributed throughout turkey. Shape mixture into 2 patties and set aside on a plate.

Heat a skillet over medium heat with 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil. Add patties and cook 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through in center.

Place cooked patties on a clean serving plate, then add remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil to the skillet (the same one you used to cook the sausage) and sautee sweet potato and mushrooms 4 minutes, until just becoming tender.

Serve sweet potatoes and mushrooms with sausage.
