Breakfast sausage recipe

About 2 weeks ago my local grocery store had for sale pre-made chicken sausage patties. I have gotten into the habit of making my own little breakfast sandwich in the mornings because it is A) Cheaper and B) Healthier. These little guys were actually really, really good. And supposedly all natural. So I went to buy more last night and, well, they are gone. Never to be carried again. Of course. So after wandering around the meat department for about 20 minutes (I shouldn't be allowed in a grocery store alone) I found NOTHING that was even remotely comparable to the chicken sausage patties. So now what....

I'll make my own. Here is how it went...

1.3 lbs of 99% Fat Free Turkey
2 tbsp dried sage
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp marjoram
1 tbsp ground white pepper
red pepper flakes to taste (I like heat)
a pinch of ground clove

Mix all the spices together, add meat, make patties, cook on stove. 

Actually really good. I made 5 patties and one taste tester. I could (and next time will) make 6 or 7. The clove, while I believe is necessary, is WICKED powerful. When I say pinch, I should have said simdge. It'll definitely do the trick for the next 5 days at least. I cook them in advance and leave them in the refrigerator so I can quickly microwave them in the AM before the hour commute I have to work. Pictures to come...
