Sweet and Savory Chicken Apple Sausage Bites

I am so excited to share with you this recipe for Chicken Apple Sausage Bites! I wanted something that was savory and sweet, but also a little different from the standard breakfast sausage. These are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner – they go great with eggs in the morning, on top of salad at lunchtime, or served alongside roasted broccoli after school. They’re quick and easy to make ahead of time and keep stored in the fridge until you need them.

How to make this meal

The chicken apple sausage bites were super flavorful and delicious! They tasted like something I would get from an authentic food truck or street vendor who sells gourmet hot dogs with all sorts of toppings on them. The texture was soft but held together well when dipped into mustard for extra tangy goodness (you can also dip these in ketchup). The meat is juicy and full of flavor, while the apples add some sweetness to balance it out. These are definitely worth giving as appetizers at your next party!


  • 1 package of ready made pizza dough
  • 1 package of chicken sausage (apple and maple flavored is best)
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 1 wedge of brie cheese
  • about 1/4 cup of flour (optional)
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 50 wooden skewers
  • small round cookie dough cutter, about an inch in diameter

Step by step Cooking Instructions

-Stretch out the dough in a rectangular shape.

-Cut it lengthwise into four equal size rectangles with your cookie cutter.

-Place one piece of sausage on each rectangle and top with an apple slice, some cheese, and any other desired toppings (onion slices are especially good). Gently roll up the pieces to form tubes about two inches long. The end result should resemble a cinnamon bun but is much easier to eat!

-Wrap loosely around wooden skewer so that they don’t come undone while cooking or serving at party. You want them to be loose enough for you to pick them off easily when serving so people can have more than one if they like without feeling guilty about leaving too much food on the plate.

-Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-14 minutes or until rolls are golden brown and cheese has melted.

-Add in a side of apple sauce or cranberry sauce.

-You can also bake the rolls with the toppings on top in an oven for about 15 minutes if you don’t want to grill them, but they won’t be as crispy.


Tips and Tricks

-For extra flavor you can add in a couple teaspoons of cumin, coriander and hot pepper flakes.

-You can also use low fat cheese instead for those that are watching their calories or want to save on some calories but still get the savory taste at the end.

-Since these rolls don’t require any buns they’re perfect if someone is gluten free as well!

-Use your imagination and make this recipe even more yours by adding different types of cheeses, sauces like blueberry sauce or cranberries, applesauce etc., cut up bacon into smaller pieces so it’s easier to wrap around the skewers too.
