Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 10 mins


  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped apple I use my mini food processor to finely chop
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil or ghee*
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Combine everything but the oil in a medium bowl.   
  • Place oil* in skillet over medium high heat (*skip this step and oil ingredient if using #airfryer - see notes for air frying instructions).
  • Once oil is hot, add small scoops of sausage mixture, flattened slightly between your hands.
  • Cook till brown on both sides and no longer pink inside, about 3-4 minutes each side. Makes 10-12 sausage patties.
  • Stores great in the freezer! Freeze in a single layer, then store in freezer in a sealed container for up to 3 months.


*To air fry: take a few tablespoons of chicken mixture and flatten slightly with hands. Place in single layer in air fryer basket. Cook at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes each side, flipping once. Repeat with remaining chicken mixture until all patties are cooked.
