Turkey and Apple Breakfast Sausage

Turkey and Apple Breakfast Sausage
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 apples, peeled and grated
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons rubbed dried sage
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add apples and sauté until the apples are very tender, 3 to 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool completely.
  3. Add turkey, breadcrumbs, egg whites, sage, salt, pepper, red pepper, crushed red pepper, and thyme; mix well. Divide the sausage mixture into 16 portions and form into 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  4. Place the patties on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the outside is golden brown and the interior is no longer pink, about 10 minutes.  Makes 8 servings, 2 patties per serving.
