It’s easy to make your own patty sausage with just a few healthy ingredients like ground chicken, apples, onion and savory spices like sage and fennel. You can use ground turkey instead of ground chicken if you prefer.

  • 2 teaspoons
    canola oil
  • 1 small
    onion, diced
  • 1 medium
    sweet apple such as Gala or Honeycrisp, peeled and diced
  • 1 pound
    ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon
    finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon
    packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    fennel fennel seed, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add apples and cook, stirring, 2 more minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cool for 5 minutes. Wipe out the pan.
  2. Add chicken, sage, sugar, fennel, salt and pepper to the bowl with the apples and onions. Gently mix to combine. .
  3. Generously coat the pan with cooking spray and heat over medium. Using a 1/3-cup measure, scoop 4 portions of the sausage mixture into pan, flattening each into a 3-inch patty. Cook until the patties are browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning. Coat the pan with cooking spray again and repeat with remaining sausage mixture.
