Turkey Breakfast Sausage

20 oz. pkg. ground turkey
1 t. rubbed or ground sage
1 t. ground black pepper
1/4 t. red pepper flakes

In large bowl, combine turkey and seasonings. Mix thoroughly. Shape into patties (for calorie calculation, it is easiest to make 20 1 oz. patties). Heat skillet sprayed with Pam. Add patties and cook thoroughly until no longer pink inside.

Patties may also be frozen, and warmed up in the microwave for a quick breakfast.
