Apple Sausage Oven Pancake
Warm up a crisp fall morning with this taste of the season breakfast dish.
4 sausage patties
2 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups pancake batter
1 tablespoon butter
- In a large skillet, sauté sausage until browned. Pour off any fat from skillet, add apple slices, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Sauté 1 to 2 minutes until apples just lose their crispness. Set aside.
- Place the butter in a well-seasoned 9-inch iron skillet and heat in 450°F (230°C) oven until bubbly and hot. Arrange the sausage in the pan, cover with apples, distributing evenly.
- Pour the batter over the apples and bake until nicely browned, about 8 to 15 minutes.
- Cut into pie-shaped wedges and serve immediately.
