I love to provide my readers with all kinds of tips and tricks for my recipes to make sure you get the best results possible, especially if this is your first time making this recipe. However, I know many of you are experienced in the kitchen and might not need all of my recipe tips and nutritional information. If so, simply scroll to the bottom and you’ll find our easy to print recipe card for Easy Chicken Apple Sausage Patties.

Ingredients in Chicken Apple Sausage Patties

  • Ground Meat: Any lean ground meat will work. I typically use ground chicken or ground turkey.
  • Cinnamon & Nutmeg: I love the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg in this sweet sausage recipe. The warmth of these spices complements wonderfully with the apple. If you’re looking for a savory sausage, give this recipe a try.
  • Apple: A fresh apple is perfect for this recipe, choose green for a nice balance in flavors. The apple gives the sausage a perfect hint of sweetness.
  • Bone Broth: There are many store-bought options for incredible bone broth, be sure to look for low sodium bone broth. If you’d like to make your own bone broth you can use this easy chicken crockpot bone broth recipe.
  • Coconut Oil: If you’re cooking on a skillet, you’ll need oil to ensure that the sausage patties won’t stick. I prefer coconut oil but olive oil or avocado oil can also be used.

How To Make Easy Chicken Apple Sausage Patties in the Oven

  1. First preheat your oven to 375º degrees
  2. Place the ground meat, chopped apple, bone broth, and spices into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Then combine the ingredients together using your hands or spatula.
  4. Form the sausage mixture into 12 small patties and then place them on a parchment or lightly greased foil lined baking sheet.
  5. Cook for about 20-25 minutes until internal temperature of sausages is 165º. We recommend checking the sausage patty temperature with a meat thermometer a few times while baking to ensure the turkey or chicken doesn’t overcook.
  6. Once the patties are cooked, remove the pan from the oven and serve immediately. See below for storing tips.

Recipe Tips

  • A non-stick skillet can help ensure that the breakfast patties stay together when flipping.
  • After handling raw meat, take the extra step of making sure you have both clean hands and clean countertops.
  • Made a double batch and want to freeze some? Place your completely cooled, cooked breakfast patties on a baking sheet and cover them with plastic wrap. Once frozen, remove them from the sheet and place them in a freezer-safe container.
  • To re-heat frozen homemade breakfast sausage, warm a large skillet on medium heat. Cook the patties for 8-10 minutes or until warmed through. Alternatively, you can also heat them up in an air fryer!
