I found the recipe here. I used ground turkey instead of chicken. They are pretty sweet– you can really taste the apple. The turkey is great, but you can’t eat very many sausages at once, even though they are very small. I think using chicken would keep it from tasting so rich. I froze the leftovers. They heat up great in the microwave- two sausages take about 30 seconds. They go great with fruit for a satisfying breakfast.
Here are the proportions we used:
1 lb. ground turkey
3 dashes ground cinnamon
3/8 tspn pepper
3/4 tspn salt
2 and 1/4 tspn rubbed sage
2 apples grated peeled tart apple
olive oil (for skillet cooking)
2 TBSP chopped onion
In a nonstick skillet, saute onion in 3/4 teaspoon oil until crisp-tender. Add apple (grated in food chopper); cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Stir in seasonings. Crumble meat over apple mixture and mix well. Shape into 1/2 inch thick patties.
In a skillet, cook patties in olive oil (2 tspns per batch) over medium heat or until juices run clear.
