What to do with apple chicken sausage

I got suckered in by a tasting at my grocery store. It's delicious sausage. Any suggestions how to prepare or what to pair it with??
Thanks! :)

  1. Try to incorporate it into sauteed cabbage, onions and apples. Bet it would be delicious.....any distinctive seasonings with the sausage (e.g. fennel)?


      When I have apple chicken sausage I refer to this site for recipe and inspiration. The last recipe I made was with their sausage and veggie skewers; atichokes and red peppers. It was very tasty.

        Hey - that's the brand that was demo-ing!! There's lots of great options on the site - thanks!

          It's a really good brand and their co. website recipe file is really terrific. Enjoy!

      2. Delicious is an understatment. I remember thinking I'd never stomach a chicken sausage, but even a less flavorful one is impossible to refuse. You'll be hooked for life, now ;)

        A very basic way of enjoying them is just to pan fry and serve for breakfast with french toast or pancakes and eggs. I cook them quite dark, I love them almost carmelized. It never hurts if a little syrup gets on them!

          Whoa, that's a great idea. I've always looked away from apple chicken sausage,
          but I think I will try some for breakfast with a drizzle of maple syrup and pancakes.
          I'm salivating thinking about this !!

            Definitely a great breakfast sausage! I'd saute it in slices, caramelize onions and make a frittata. Maybe throw some chunks of goat cheese on top. And apple cinnamon pancakes on the side! (Throw in some nutmeg or cardamom for extra spice)... I'm making this for dinner tonight!

          2. find the recipe online for the world's best braised cabbage from Molly Stevens, brown the sausages and throw them on at the end. to die for. have a big dollop of horseradish on the side.

            1. I use them to make a creamy pasta sauce but removing the meat from the casing and then fry it. Carmelize an onion, add back meat and add cream. Cook until thickened. Pour over pasta. It's really simple but it's a go to dish I use alot.
