Chicken Breakfast Sausage Patties

1 pound ground chicken breast
About 1/2 peeled and diced medium apple (gala or other red)
2 T olive oil
2 T minced onion
1 - 2 T maple syrup
1 t garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 - 3 t dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 to 1 t sea salt
2 T ground flax seeds

Mix all ingredients together, form patties with about 1/4 to 1/3 cup meat mixture and saute in pan over medium heat. Approximately 5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through.

Very quick prep time, about 5 minutes and then cook time.

Comments: This is the first time I made this recipe, which is modified from several I found online and in books. It is very quick and easy and I was suprised at how good this sausage tasted (and that it really tasted like sausage!)... I would not change a thing about the way I made it this time. A word of caution, I did not measure my seasonings and tried to approximate the amounts above, so just use your best judgement. You could probably easily sub in ground turkey meat and I think if I wasn't making this for a six-year old to eat, it would taste good spicy - with hot seeds or some cayenne thrown in.


  1. Linda, this looks very yummy! I have tried sausage before but it never tasted quite right.

  2. This was my first try and my first thought when I tasted it was "wow, I can't believe it tastes like sausage"!! :) Anyway, Steve loved it too and was suspicious that there was not pork or any "bad" ingredients in it. I had to keep telling him that seriously, it was ok to eat! Too funny.


Please say hello and let me know what you think! I read all my comments and would love to hear from you.....
