Breakfast Burger with Mango Fries
This is a great brunch sandwich! If you want to spoil your Mom this Sunday, give her breakfast with the works. My Mom always appreciates everything I cook for her. :)
This was my first time making my own turkey breakfast sausage and it was so delicious! This version has hardly any fat, you can add olive oil to the mixture of ground turkey, spices and minced apple if you want it richer, but it was really good and didn’t need it. The apple adds sweetness and keeps the meat from drying out. And with the cheese and egg, it’s pretty rich already to be adding more fat. That being said, I contemplated cooking some bacon for the top of this dish.
I didn’t fry the mangoes, I cut them to look like fries. You could make French fries or breakfast potatoes to go with this, but I wanted a low calorie option, so I had fruit. Turns out, the mango strips were amazingly yummy with the flavors of the sagey turkey sausage. It tasted like Thanksgiving, Summer and Good Morning all rolled into one. I can’t wait to make this again.
Season 1 lb 99% lean, organic ground turkey with a mixture of 1/2 tsp celery salt, fresh ground pepper, sage, nutmeg, cinnamon, dried basil, red pepper flakes, a few fennel seeds, onion powder, and garlic powder, fresh chopped garlic, and fresh chopped green onions, 1 fresh chopped sage leaf. (As far as spice amounts go, I just put a sprinkle of each spice in my mortar and pestle and crushed them together). Mix in 1/2 to 1 whole minced apple and the juice of 1/2 lemon.
Form into patties and cook on both sides until cooked through. Top with cheddar cheese, sliced heirloom tomatoes, and a fried egg. Serve on a whole wheat bun with a side of fruit or fries. Yum!
