Chicken apple sausages are everywhere these days. There are, I’m sure, hundreds of recipes for Paleo or Whole 30 Compliant floating around Pinterest these days, and mine is no different. It’s Paleo. It’s Whole 30 Compliant. But it’s the seasoning that makes it a little different.
I’ve never been a huge fan of maple syrup or maple flavorings. It’s a super strong flavor and it just tastes sickly sweet to me. Fenugreek is a spice that’s often described as a cross between celery and maple in flavor. It’s slightly sweet and nutty, and perfect for breakfast sausage!
The ingredients are simple: salt, pepper, fenugreek, chili pepper paste, one small apple and 1 lb ground chicken.
Just grind your fenugreek if it isn’t already ground and shred your apple. Then just mix it all together in a bowl with the chili pepper paste, salt and pepper.
Then all you need to do is pan fry the sausage. I made mine into 6 patties, and each patty is a nice size, too. No tiny portions here! They need about 3-5 minutes per side on medium high. You don’t want the meat to show any pink. Let them rest for a few minutes before servings.
I had mine with eggs and some bell pepper slices! Low carb and super delicious. Kept my belly full for a solid 4 hours!
