Combine the turkey, garlic, onion, chipotle, cumin, oregano, thyme, sage, and pecans and mix just until well combined. Don't overmix. Season with salt and pepper. Cook a small amount of the mixture in a hot pan to test for seasoning. Form the mixture into 6 equal size patties. Set aside.
Clean the asparagus and cut off the bottom inch or so and discard. Cut off the tips and set aside. Cut the stems into 1/2-inch pieces. Bring the chicken stock to a boil. Add the tips and blanch for 1 minute, just until tender. Remove from the chicken stock with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the stems to the chicken stock and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until very tender. Carefully pour the mixture into the blender. Add the garlic, oregano, lemon juice and zest. Carefully blend the mixture until smooth. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Add the turkey patties and saute just until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on thickness of patties.
Heat a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When the oil is hot, carefully crack the eggs into the pan. Cook to desired doneness.
Place 1 turkey sausage patty on each of 6 plates. Top with 1 fried egg, drizzle with asparagus sauce, and garnish with the reserved asparagus tips.
