  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1 apple peeled and minced (I used a Pink Lady apple)
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp ground fennel or fennel seed
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt a spoonful of your fat of choice. Sautee the onions until translucent, a few minutes. Add the apple and sautee both until softened, about 5-6 minutes total. Let cool for a few minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine pork, sage, fennel, salt and pepper. When the onion / apple mixture is cool, add and mix well. I use my hands.
  3. Form the sausage mixture into patties. I made mine about 2″ in diameter but you can make them as big or small as you’d like.

  4. Heat the same skillet to medium-high. Add another spoonful of fat and fry the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through completely.
