Blueberry Turkey Breakfast Sausage (paleo and whole30) \

Blueberry Turkey Breakfast Sausage ( paleo and Whole30))

  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8 sausages 1x
  • Category: breakfast



  • 1 pound ground turkey (I prefer ground thigh meat)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage, minced (or 1/2 tsp dried sage)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (omit for WHOLE30)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp butter, ghee, or coconut oil for cooking


  1. In a large bowl, combine turkey, salt, sage, thyme, pepper, and maple syrup until well incorporated.  Gently fold in blueberries.
  2. Roll into 8 even sized balls and gently flatten to about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Heat tablespoon of fat of choice in a large skillet on medium heat.  Add in turkey patties and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until nice a brown on bottom.  Flip and press down slightly to flatten a bit more. Cook for another 4  minutes, until cooked all the way through.
  4. Enjoy!  Leftovers can be stored in fridge for 2-3 days and frozen for several months.  Simply reheat in toaster oven or oven in covered baking dish.


I prefer ground turkey thigh meat for breakfast sausages.  Do not use extra lean as sausages will be too dry. You can also use ground pork if you like.
