I’ve been enjoying experimenting with the Primal Palate spices I recently ordered! If you follow me on Instagram, I included the spices I recently purchased in a story. I found my spices through Amazon and purchased the Breakfast Blend, Apple Pie Spice, Seafood Seasoning, and Barbecue Rub. They are also available at Primal Palate.
This recipe is a mash up of the Breakfast Blend and the Apple Pie Spice, oddly enough, to season ground turkey! I wanted a sweet and savory flavor to go with the turkey, caramelized onion, and apple. The Breakfast Blend provided the savory herbs and spices with a little hit of cinnamon, but the Apple Pie Spice gave a depth of warming spices. I was so impressed when I first opened these spice mixes because the aroma blasts out of the bottles as soon as you take the seal off. You can sense the quality that goes into these. They aren’t comprised of little stale bits of leaves and dust, like you might get from other brands. These spice mixes have a rich aroma and flavor.
I can’t wait to make these again, especially in a hash or scramble!
Sweet Apple and Caramelized Onion Breakfast Sausage
3 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, diced
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb 7% lean ground turkey
1 tbsp Primal Palate Breakfast Blend
1/4 tsp Primal Palate Apple Pie Spice
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/4 tsp dried crushed rosemary
1/2 tsp ground fennel seeds
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt, divided
- Heat 1 tbsp olive in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and a pinch of the salt to help release water and cook until translucent and browned, about 10 minutes. Adjust heat as needed to prevent burning. A tablespoon of water or two may be necessary to prevent sticking.
- Add apple and garlic to the onions and cook until the apple is slightly tender, about 10 more minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
- Add onion mixture to a food processor and pulse until the mixture has a jam-like consistency. Add to a bowl with the turkey and remaining seasonings. Mix well. I like to check for seasoning by making a tiny patty and cooking. Adjust seasoning. The sausage can be cooked immediately, but I prefer to cover the container and let the flavors meld overnight.
- To cook, heat remaining olive oil over medium heat. Make patties and add to the oil. Because of the natural sugars in the onion and apple, adjust heat between medium-low and medium as needed to make sure the patties cook through and brown on the outside.
