Maple Apple Breakfast Sausage

Who knows what is really in commercially made sausage these days? When in doubt, I always like to make my own healthy version to make sure I’m eating something chemical free.

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 large apple, peeled and diced fine
  • 3 T sweet onion, minced 3 T pure maple syrup, grade A or B (use grade B if you prefer a strong maple flavor)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1-2 tsp fennel seed, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt, to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Form 16 patties from the mixture. You can size the patties to your taste.

Fry the patties in a skillet for about 15 min until golden brown. I used a George Foreman grill because my skillet was being used to make an omelet.

Drain sausage patties on paper towel if necessary.

Store any cooled leftover sausage in the freezer for a future impromptu breakfast.

Note: If you would like to use ground pork, ground beef, ground buffalo or even venison, it would also taste great in this recipe.
