Whoa. That was kind of a long unplanned hiatus from this place. Well, welcome back! I've made chicken apple sausages for the occasion.
If you want to make these more breakfasty, try adding a dash of cinnamon.
chicken apple sausage
serves 2 (adapted from a Martha recipe)
1/2 lb ground chicken
1 small granny smith apple, diced
1/2 onion, finely diced
about 10 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350. In oven proof frying pan, saute the onions in a little olive oil, until translucent. Add the apple pieces and saute for a few more minutes, until slightly soft.
In medium bowl, combine the chicken, sage, salt & pepper, and the onion-apple mixture.
Form mixture into four patties and place in hot frying pan, prepped with a little olive oil again. Brown both sides for a few minutes each, and then place in hot oven. Bake for about 10 minutes, until cooked through.
We enjoyed ours with some mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. Its starting to really feel like summer 'round here.
