When you buy breakfast sausage, you may find that up to 80 percent of its calories come from fat. Fortunately, you can skip much of that fat, without missing out on sizzling sausage texture and flavor, by making your own turkey sausage patties. This recipe uses the leanest turkey meat of all, skinless breast, so only 12 percent of the calories are fat calories. To make sure you're starting with really low-fat ground turkey, ask your butcher to grind the turkey breast meat for you.
