Apple Sage Chicken Sausages

Weekend mornings when I am off from work are all about lazy breakfasts in our PJ’s. Chad is in charge of the coffee and I have fun trying new breakfast recipes.  Sometimes its crazy pancakes or omelets made from last nights leftovers.  This weekend it was these slightly sweet apple sage chicken sausages.  The batch barely made it through the day, we were definitely nibbling on them all morning.  Unlike store bought sausages, you are able to control the excess fat, sugar, and processed ingredients in these, which made me even more obsessed with this recipe!
