Instructions

Sausage

  • In a small bowl, stir together baking soda and water until baking soda has dissolved in water. Add turkey and stir until well combined. Let sit for 20 minutes.
  • Stir in maple syrup, oregano, garlic powder, thyme, salt, and pepper.
  • Form sausage into 8 patties that are about 4 to 5 inches in diameter and about 1/3 inch in thickness Set patties on parchment or wax paper. NOTE: You only need 6 patties for this recipe, so you can freeze the additional 2 patties for latter.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to skillet. Cook for about 2.5 minutes a side, or until side has browned well. Then flip and brown other side of patty. NOTE: If you cannot fit all the patties on the skillet at once, you will need to add oil before the next addition.
  • Set patties aside, but leave grease in pan to cook eggs.

Eggs

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9 baking pan or a muffin tin pan with baking spray.
  • Place the skillet you used for the sausage over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper. Saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  • Place vegetables in a small bowl and stir together with eggs, salt, and pepper.
  • Cooking and cutting: For 9x9 baking pan: Pour eggs into greased pan. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes. Flip onto cutting board. Use 3" biscuit cutter to cut out egg rounds. For muffin pan: Pour eggs evenly among 6 greased muffin tin wells. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing.
