Another southern American staple I collected in my college years in Huntsville was Sausage gravy. The creamy, buttery gravy gives you all the feels when slathered all over biscuits and eggs.

Instead of biscuits I decided to use up some Gouda grits by making grit cakes. Such a wicked combination of flavors with the cheesy crisp grit cake and the creamy sweet sausage gravy.

For the Breakfast Sausage patties

Start by combining the turkey meat and seasonings with maple syrup. Roll into a tube shape, wrap with plastic and allow to marinate (For the best result marinate overnight).

2

Second, prepare the sausage meat by removing the plastic wrap and shape into patties.

Heat the pan on medium high and add a splash of oil. Place your patties into the pan and cook until brown on both sides.

3

Last, remove from pan and allow to rest before serving. This recipe makes 16 small patties (however I used half to make the gravy).

Freeze them patties

Can’t eat them all in one go? Load them up into a freezer seal zip lock bag. They will keep for well over 1 month, if they last that long.
