I am such a FAN of the organic varieties of Chicken Apple Sausage available at my coop and supermarket; however, not always a fan of things on the label like “natural” ingredients or some other something that I can’t pronounce as the last thing on the ingredient list, which most of the time is some sort of preservative.  A couple of  years ago I ventured out and made my own version of a simple sausage at home for the same reason, to know what exactly was going into the mixture.  Well, I’m back at it to create that sweet and savory breakfast meat that I love so much, but made right in my kitchen.  It’s super simple and only 4 ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need –

  • 1 lb ground chicken (I chose a free-range organic variety)
  • 1/2 peeled grated Gala Apple (or any apple variety you like most) I also squeezed the grated apple in a cheesecloth to remove the excess moisture
  • 1/4 tsp rubbed sage
  • 1/2 tsp Badia Complete Seasoning
Chicken Apple Sausage2Preheat oven to 385 degrees.  Prepare a large baking sheet by covering with parchment paper (make sure its parchment NOT wax paper)  Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl and knead together with your hands until ingredients are all incorporated.  Roll into balls and place on parchment paper. Bake at 385 for 50 minutes or until desired brownness. Remove from parchment paper and let cool.  I drizzled mine with a little local tupelo honey just to add a little more sweetness to my savory.
Enjoy! xo

  1. I love the Aidelle’s chicken and apple sausage, but they are so expensive. Thanks for this recipe, I will have to try it.
