BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Applegate is calling its new sausage patties the "missing link" to breakfast sandwiches.

The new Applegate Naturals Sausage Patties come in three varieties — Chicken & Apple, Savory Turkey and Chicken & Maple. The patties, like Applegate's link sausages, come from antibiotic-free turkey and chicken meat.

The patties retail for $4.99 for a 7-oz. package containing six patties.
