What’s up? So, we went apple picking Sunday, got some good Fuji mountain apples, ate some apple cider doughnuts (if you know, you know), and hung around some good people. So, it was only fitting that we do something with all these extra apples around the house – besides make an apple pie, of course, because I would eat it allllllllllllll. 

But before we get started, look at these pictures that my friend, Josh took while we were there. He planned on getting some of the Leonard’s, but he was kind enough to take some of Dan and me too. He’s talented and a good guy, for real.

Ok, moving on to food. Daniel and I cooked some good ole’ sausage last night. And I wanted to share with ya what we did to make it not boring. And ok, ok, I know. Sausage is full of fat. Honestly, I think America needs more fat though – in smaller doses. Don’t be scared of fat. Be scared of being addicted to food. With that said, I would do a better job than us in picking your meat. We bought our’s on a random night after 8:00 from Publix. We didn’t prepare all that great. I wish we would have called my friend Colleen and bought some from her farm – Providence Farm . Her meat tastes good, and it’s from right down the road, so you can’t go wrong. Anyway, fail on our end, but it was still good, and you get the picture. The combo of sausage +apple + sage +fennel is reallllll good.

Apple Sausage Patties

 

Makes 6 patties.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes 

Total Time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • 1 lb. sausage

  • 1-2 medium apples-diced (depending on how apple-y you like your sausage 🙂 Fuji apples work great. I wouldn’t go with anything too sweet. 

  • 1/2 sweet onion – diced.

  • 2 tbsp sage- diced.

  • 1 tbsp fennel

  • 1 tsp pepper

Instructions: 

  • Heat skillet on low heat. It’s important that you cook your sausage LOW and SLOW. Say it to yourself over and over again so you don’t forget. 

  • Remove sausage from container and put in bowl. 

  • Make sure apple(s), onion, and sage are all diced. Mix with sausage.

  • Add fennel and pepper. Mix well. 

  • Separate into 6 patties. Put on skillet, and cook both sides thoroughly. There shouldn’t be any pink. This will take anywhere from 10-15 minutes. 

Notes: 

  • These go great with eggs- especially these eggs – especially sunny side up eggs or THESE EGGS 🙂
  • This is a great addition to your breakfast prep.
