Chicken and Apple Breakfast Sausage

October 10, 2016

Damn Sab, back again with another food post

First of all, the term sausage is used a little loosely here but go with it won’t ya? So because I like to keep my whole 30 life interesting, I wanted to switch up my breakfast from my frittatas and all. I remembered these frozen breakfast sausages I used to eat a lot in uni (ugh so bad). The key thing was that they had that slightly sweet savoury thing on lock! They were so good!


Now whole30 as you know is strictly no sugar, so I thought why not add some apples, that should add some slight sweetness. I used pink lady apples which are my absolute favourite. If you’re not a fan of sweet + savoury, this might change your mind. They are just too good.

My mum and brother who were visiting ate so many of them much to my annoyance! hahaa

I usually just grabbed one or two with a boiled egg for breakfast and I was good till lunch!

    Can’t wait to try this out! What do you think about baking in an oven instead of frying? ?

      yes that would work too, just make sure they don’t dry out. I more pan grilled than fried though… very little oil
