Apple “Sausage” with Sage
Serves: 8
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • ¼ cup green onion
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 pound ground skinless chicken
  • ¾ tablespoon chopped sage
  • ¼ tablespoon finely chopped thyme
  • 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion to the pan and cook, until it starts to wilt and soften. Toss in the apples, and stir as the mixture cooks about 2 more minutes. Remove mixture from the heat and place in a large bowl. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
  2. To make the patties, add the chicken, sage, thyme, sugar, salt and pepper to the bowl with the apples and onions. Stir to combine until all ingredients are evenly mixed..
  3. Using oil in a spray jar, generously spritz the pan and heat over medium heat.. Scoop out the patty mixture using ⅓ cup measuring scoop (roughly 5 tablespoon portion size patties), making patties. You may only be able to get about 4 patties in the pan. Cook them until they are cooked through and become golden/ browned, flipping as necessary.. Spritz the pan with oil again before cooking the next batch.
  4. We suggest serving two of these this with a quality carbohydrate like berries and/or ½ cup oatmeal.
