Apple Thyme Breakfast Sausage (Paleo, Whole30, AIP)

Author: Michele
Servings: 8 patties
Easy and flavorful breakfast sausage patties that can be baked in the oven. Great for batch cooking and freezing! Paleo and AIP friendly and can easily be modified for Whole30
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins


  • 1 lb ground Chicken
  • 1 Apple (grated)
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup (omit for Whole30)
  • 1 tsp dried or fresh Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 /2 tsp Sea Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix everything together in a large bowl and then form into 8-10 patties. Place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then flip and bake for an additional 15 minutes.


MAKE AHEAD: Make ahead and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
FREEZE FOR LATER: These are a great option to make a double or triple batch of and then freeze for later. To freeze, lay the cooked patties on a baking sheet or dish and freeze, then remove and put into a freezer-safe container or bag. This way you'll easily be able to get 1-2 at a time. Simply reheat in the microwave or on the stove.
SUBSTITUTIONS: Replace the ground chicken with ground pork or turkey. Don't have thyme? Try some dried sage instead!
