Mix all ingredients including egg white OR oil, if using, in a bowl. For best flavor, cover bowl and refrigerate overnight so that the meat can absorb the flavor of the spices. Or skip this step, and go right to cooking.
Shape the mixture into small patties of equal size. Meat will be sticky, you can grease you hands to make it easier to shape patties.
Gently warm olive oil, in large skillet over medium heat, add sausage patties until browned, about 5 minutes. Turn patties over and brown on the other side.
Make sure sausage patties are cooked through but do not overcook or they will be dry since lean ground turkey does not contain all of the fat that traditional pork sausage does.
Serve with scrambled eggs and a glass of unsweetened coconut or almond milk.
HEALTHY HINTS & QUICK TIPS: You can make the sausage and keep the meat or the patties in the refrigerator up to 5 days. You can also cook all the patties and freeze the leftovers then reheat them for a quick breakfast.
Less meat? Cut ground turkey to 1/2 pound & add 1C cooked brown rice mixed in a food processor along with an egg white + 1T oil or 1C oatmeal processed into "flour" in a food processor added to meat with an egg white + 1T oil.
