Sage Turkey Sausage with Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms
4 ounces lean ground turkey breast
1 Tablespoon fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons extra-virgin coconut oil, divided
½ cup grated sweet potato
2 large white mushrooms, sliced
In a small bowl, combine turkey, sage, thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper, mixing until seasonings are distributed throughout turkey. Shape mixture into 2 patties and set aside on a plate.
Heat a skillet over medium heat with 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil. Add patties and cook 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through in center.
Place cooked patties on a clean serving plate, then add remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil to the skillet (the same one you used to cook the sausage) and sautee sweet potato and mushrooms 4 minutes, until just becoming tender.
Serve sweet potatoes and mushrooms with sausage.
