Bacon Apple Breakfast Sausage


2012/02/29 by nikkiledford

Every Friday I make lunch for my coworkers. It’s my little “Undercover Paleo Operation”, showing regular, non-paleo folks how yummy it is to eat like a caveman!

I made Paleo pancakes, a very simple recipe composed of banana, nut butter and egg. I also made eggs on a placemat, cut up some berries, AND made my own breakfast sausage patties out of bacon, apple, and chicken.

Breakfast for Lunch

Not surprisingly, there were rave reviews all around. So here’s a suggestion. Next time you have the opportunity to make breakfast for someone… make these. They’re incredibly easy, cheaper than pre-packaged sausages with God-knows-what in them.

Bacon Apple Breakfast Sausage

1 lb. ground chicken
6 slices of medium cut bacon, chopped into pieces
2 small green apples, peeled and cored
1/4 c. chopped red onion
1 tsp. cinnamon
1-2 tsp. sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Grease a sheet pan with bacon fat or coconut oil. If frying, use a skillet and oil.
  3. In a food processor, combine ingredients except chicken.
  4. Combine mixture with ground chicken.
  5. Shape into silver-dollar sized patties and place on sheet pan.

    Getting ready for the heat!

  6. Bake for 20 mins. Flip halfway through.
  7. If using a skillet, fry and flip. Make sure they are done inside before eating!

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
