Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Serves: 4

These versatile sausage patties are a welcome addition to any meal. Serve alongside eggs in the morning, or as a burger at supper.


1 lb (0.5 kg) ground chicken
1 apple, grated
1 cup (250 mL) onions, minced
2 tbsp (30 mL) sage, fresh
2 tsp (10 mL) sage, dried
1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) allspice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten


1 Grate the apple with skin on and mix with onion, sage, allspice, garlic, salt, pepper, and beaten egg in a large bowl. Add in ground chicken and stir until very well combined.
2 Shape mixture into eight ½ inch (1.2 cm) thick patties. To make cooking easier, refrigerate patties, covered in wax paper, for at least 2 hours or overnight. This helps the patties hold their shape.
3 Pan fry patties in a non-stick skillet for about 6 minutes per side. Alternately, put patties on a sheet of foil sprayed with non-stick spray. Place on a preheated barbecue and grill for about 6 minutes per side at medium heat or until a meat thermometer inserted into the chicken pieces reads 165°F (74°C).
