Homemade Chicken Apple Sausage

May 19, 2014

I've wanted to make homemade sausage for a long time; I've written down recipes, printed recipes, and Googled recipes, but never committed to actually making a recipe. So when I finally prepared from-scratch chicken apple sausage patties for breakfast this weekend, I couldn't believe, not only how good they were, but how simple and quick they were to make (then I kicked myself for not trying them sooner). I'll definitely be making these again and often, maybe even adding a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat. 

Chicken Apple Sausage
1 lb ground chicken (you could also use ground turkey)
1 small apple
2 tablespoons fresh sage, finely chopped 
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 egg

Core and peel your apple, then use a cheese grater to shred it. Next, you want to wring out your apple shreds to get them as dry as possible (I put mine in a couple of paper towels and twisted).  Place apple shreds, chicken, and spices in a medium bowl. Lightly beat the egg, then add it to the bowl. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until they're well combined, then shape into patties. Heat a nonstick or lightly oiled skillet or grill pan over medium heat and cook patties, turning once, until cooked through. Enjoy!

    1. Sooo good! You should definitely make this for your family.

  2. Oh this does sound good! I will have to take a stab at making this. Tonight it is pasta salad which I bought at an Italian deli.

    1. That sounds good too! I love New York delis; nothing like them in Cali or AZ.


Thank you so much for your comments! I always enjoy reading them.
