Apple Turkey Sausage

My dad is an amazing cook. He is known in our family and circle of friends for his ability to throw random ingredients together and make it taste delicious. Growing up, no matter what time of the day I brought friends over, he almost always whipped something up in the kitchen for my guests. And now, as his married adult daughter, he still cooks for me when he visits! :) I think my favorite memories of my dad are in the kitchen. 

Last time my parents visited, my dad made these amazing sausage patties. Normally, he doesn't follow a recipe, but for once he did so now I can make them to!!
