Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine turkey, apples, parsley, sage, salt, pepper, nutmeg and eggs in a large bowl. With dampened hands, shape 1/3 cup sausage mixture into patties to yield 8 patties.

Lightly brush a nonstick skillet or griddle with oil and heat over moderate heat until hot. Brown sausage patties, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer patties to a baking sheet and bake in oven until turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
