Savory Chicken Sausage Patties

I really enjoy making my own sausage by buying boneless, skinless chicken thighs when they are on sale and grinding them into sausage using my Kitchenaide Grinder Attachment. I really enjoy the Apple/Maple ones I make, but my husband wanted to try his hand, so I let him!

These are a bit spicy and savory, and you can adjust the seasonings to your liking. We normally get it seasoned and fry a very small patty to taste, then decide what we may need more of, if anything!

They are really good on the "fake" Egg McMuffin I make my husband each morning for breakfast. I use Egg Beaters and Fat Free Cheese, and one of these patties or whatever I have on hand, and it holds him nicely till lunch time!

1 family pack boneless, skinless thighs, ground into hamburger consistency
2 eggs, whipped
dried parsley
dried onion
smoked paprika
onion powder
garlic powder
sage
celery salt
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
fresh cracked black pepper (alot, we use our extra coffee grinder to make a bunch)

**you can add bread crumbs if you wish, we chose not to***

Mix the above and shape into patties, fry in a bit of oil in a non-stick fry pan, enjoy!

One of these days, I'm going to spring for that Kitchen Aid Attachment. It's pricey! Beautiful breakast, and the egg is cooked to perfection.

Hahaha isnt my sister just so funny... dont think so.

Anyhow, I love the idea of making ones own sausgae. I never have, I must get that attachment. Geez, sausage, attachment, oh lord.

This conjurs up memories of my Mom grinding meat with the stand grinder attached to the side of the kitchen table. I don't have that attachment to my Kitchen Aid, but I know the butcher would grind anything up that we ask. Hmm, note to self, check with the butcher.....

Donna, calm down with the 'sausage and attachment'! J/K!

I'm an egg person and these compliment eggs perfectly. Looks delicious just like the pasta salad! Happy Thanksgiving Cheryl!

This is a really good idea. I think I'll just get ground chicken from my butcher, then add in all your ingredients. Will make for a good change during our weekend breakfasts!
