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.

  • 2 large egg whites

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450 °F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Add apples and saute until the apples are very tender, 3 to 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool completely.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
