  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup grated peeled tart apple
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage or 3/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 pound ground chicken or turkey


  1. In a nonstick skillet, saute onion in 3/4 teaspoon oil until crisp-tender. Add apple; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Stir in seasonings. Crumble chicken over apple mixture and mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties.
    In a skillet, cook patties in remaining oil over medium heat or until juices run clear.
