Ingredients
  

For the Turkey Chorizo

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey breast meat
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme leaves
  • ½ tsp dried oregano leaves
  • tsp ground cloves
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • cooking spray

For the Breakfast Sandwich (per sandwich)

  • 1 cooked Turkey Chorizo sausage patty
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ avocado
  • 1 whole wheat English muffin

Instructions
 

To make the Turkey Chorizo

  • Put the turkey and spices in a mixing bowl. Using your fingers, combine the turkey and seasonings. Portion the turkey chorizo mixture into 16 portions. Form each portion into a ~3-inch diameter, 1/4-in thin patty.
  • Heat a large, nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Working in batches, lay sausage patties in the pan pressing to keep them thin and flat. Cook until browned on the bottom and when you can see the edges starting to cook as well. Flip and press again with a spatula to keep the patties thin and flat. Once cooked through, transfer to a plate to cool. Repeat with the remaining sausage patties. Yield: 16 patties.

To make the Breakfast Sandwich

  • Heat a small, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add the egg and cook over easy if you want (I like a runny yolk) or all the way through if you don't. Or scramble it. Your breakfast, your choice!
  • Toast the English muffin. Serve with a patty of Turkey Chorizo sausage, the cooked egg, and avocado stacked in between the English muffin halves.

Notes

I freeze half the patties and keep the rest in the fridge to enjoy during the week. Then the following week, I take a patty from the freezer as I want them.
Also, throw on a nice slice of tomato, and it gets even better.
