Spicy and Delicious Apple Maple Sausage. The name says it all, right??
Have you ever tried making your own sausage? Does it sound too intimidating? It’s actually so much easier than you think! Plus homemade really is much better for you. Most store-bought sausages are full of preservatives and other crap, even though they taste really good ????. I made mine with ground turkey (keeping those calories low, and lean proteins high), but you could make it just as easily with ground pork. You can use almost any seasonings and flavorings. I went with a spicy apple maple, and here’s how I did it:
Here is your lineup of ingredients. I know it feels like a lot, but really you probably have most of this at home already!
You can chop your apples, for bigger chunks, but I really prefer the grated apples. I want the flavor, but not the big chunks.
Mix all ingredients together. Form into patties. Then heat up your pan. I love using cast iron for this. It is the perfect, hot, even heat you need to get that golden brown color. I like to cook these on a really hot heat. The turkey will dry out much more quickly than pork sausage, so be mindful of how long it is in the pan. Hot and quick it how I like it!
Here are the patties after being flipped the first time.
Here are the finished patties. We love to serve ours with eggs and skillet potatoes, but seriously, they are so good with so many breakfast items!
I think these Spicy and Delicious Apple Maple Sausage are a great new recipe you should try! They are flavorful, healthy and quick to make!
