Turkey Apple Breakfast Sausage
The Perfect Addition to Your Daily Breakfast
Round out your breakfast with Emeril's easy turkey apple breakfast sausage.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the fennel seed and toast for one minute, stirring as needed to prevent burning. Add the onions and cook until translucent about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, salt, and cayenne, and cook for 1 minute longer. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl add the ground turkey meat, the herbs, the apple, and the cooled onion mixture. Wipe the pan clean and return it to the stove. With gloved hands or a spoon, gently mix the turkey with the seasonings and form the mixture into 6 patties, about 3 ½ ounces each. Set them aside on a tray.
Heat half of the remaining olive oil in the 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Add three of the patties and cook for 5 or 6 minutes per side, until golden brown, and cooked through. Remove from the pan and keep warm until all sausages are cooked. Repeat with the remaining teaspoon of oil and the sausage patties. Serve immediately.
