Breakfast Turkey Sausage Patties

Prep time 25 mins
Chill time 8 hrs
Cook time 12 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings
Freshly grated apple adds a tangy flavor to this spicy turkey sausage. We used a Fuji apple, but any other sweet, crisp apple or pear would make a delicious substitute.

Ingredients

  • 1 large Fuji apple
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Peel and core apple; coarsely shred apple with a hand grater. Place in a wire-mesh strainer; drain well, pressing gently with paper towels.

  2. Combine apple, garlic, and next 7 ingredients in a bowl; stir until blended. Shape mixture into 16 patties (about 2 tablespoons each). Place patties on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook patties, in batches, about 6 minutes on each side or until browned and done.

  4. Note: Make patties ahead by wrapping in wax paper and heavy-duty aluminum foil and freezing up to 2 weeks. Thaw frozen patties overnight in the refrigerator, and cook as directed.
