These homemade sausage patties are lower in fat thanks to ground turkey, and more nutritious with the addition of apples. They freeze beautifully and you can reheat them without defrosting them, making them perfect for impromptu brunches.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 3 and freeze well-wrapped for up to 3 months. Place frozen patties on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper and bake at 450°F until golden brown and no longer pink in the middle, about 20 minutes.
2 teaspoons  canola oil
1   onion, finely chopped
2   tart apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled and grated
1 pound   ground turkey
1 cup  fresh breadcrumbs  (see Tip)
2   large egg whites
2 teaspoons   rubbed dried sage
1 1/2 teaspoons   salt
1/2 teaspoon   freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon  freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon   ground allspice

Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs: Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add apples and sauté until the apples are very tender, 3 to 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool completely.

Add turkey, breadcrumbs, egg whites, sage, salt, pepper, nutmeg and allspice; mix well. Divide the sausage mixture into 16 portions and form into 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Place the patties on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the outside is golden brown and the interior is no longer pink, about 10 minutes.

Healthy breakfast sausage? Absolutely delicious!
This recipe makes truly terrific breakfast sausage. But it's also good for other meals. (For example, try crumbling the turkey mixture instead of forming it into patties, cook as directed, then use these sausage "crumbles" to top homemade pizza, etc.) I've made these for years and they're super!
