Chicken and Apple Sausage Patties

16 patties

These sausage patties are great with eggs or pancakes.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for cooking sausage

  • 1 small onion, finely diced

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch dice

  • 1 pound ground chicken

  • cup fresh sage leaves, shredded

  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 pinch cinnamon


  1. Heat oil in a small saute pan over medium heat, and cook onion until translucent and soft, about 3 minutes. Add apples and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Let cool.

  2. Combine chicken with onion-apple mixture and remaining ingredients, mixing with your hands. Form into 1 1/2-inch-round patties, and chill until ready to use.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a little oil in a medium ovenproof saute pan, and brown patties over medium-low heat 2 minutes on each side; transfer pan to oven, and bake until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
