This was an easy meal. I used vegetarian sausage, but included a version for pork as well as the vegetarian sausage below.
Apple Sausage Brunch Bake
8 vegetarians sausage patties OR 1 1/2 pounds pork sausage
1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling with more fruit
2 to 3 apples, peeled a chopped (2 cups total)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
1 1/2 cups baking mix (bisquick, jiffy)
1 1/2 cups milk1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 13x9 pan with cooking spray.
Defrost sausage patties enough to cut into chunks. Combine with pie filling and apples in a bowl. Spread evenly in pan.
Pork sausage version:
Brown sausage in skillet until no longer pink. Stir in apples and pie filling. Spread in bottom of baking pan.
Sprinkle apple mixture with half of the cheese.
Combine baking mix, milk, salt, pepper and eggs in a bowl. Pour over apple mixture.
Bake for 35 to 37 minutes until brown and knife inserted comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and return to oven to 5 minutes to melt cheese.
Let stand a few before serving.
