Breakfast Sausage Apple Pie

May 20, 2019Teresa

Full disclosure: I LOVE Breakfast Sausage Apple Pie. It is my favorite breakfast pie ever. Sausage and apple pie filling is stuffed into a pie shell. It’s sprinkled with cheddar cheese, brown sugar and a streusel topping. The end result? Mouthwatering. If you enjoy savory and sweet together, this pie is for you. If you’ve never tried sausage and apple flavors together before, you don’t know what you’re missing.

I have had this recipe for over three decades. The original version called for sausage links. But that meant a lot of the pie didn’t have bites of sausage in it. I changed it to bulk sausage so it tasted more meaty that way. Now, let me give a disclaimer. If you make this in your own pie crust in a deep-dish 10-inch pie plate, you will use all the streusel. However, if you prefer a store-bought pie crust, you will only need about half of the streusel topping. It won’t fit into the pan otherwise.

We had Breakfast for Dinner for our Friday night care group back in early March. I served this delicious pie with Apple Pie French Toast and Funfetti Cake Donuts. Yes, we were all high on sugar that night. 🙂 And it certainly was a meal to remember.

I get that not everyone will love the combination of sausage and apples. But if you like a hearty, filling and satisfying breakfast option, Breakfast Sausage Apple Pie will do it. Except for donuts, this is my favorite comfort food. But then I’ve always liked pie. I enjoy savory versions just as much as sweeter ones. This is one of those recipes where I could actually eat the whole pie and be in seventh heaven. I could eat this pie until it’s coming out my ears. 🙂 Seriously. The different flavors and textures are awesome.

Give Breakfast Sausage Apple Pie a try the next time you make up a big country breakfast. It’s also great for holiday or brunch menus. You may find yourself going back for seconds and thirds. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Ha!

If you’re using a store-bought pastry shell, sprinkle only about half of the topping over top. Otherwise, in a regular deep-dish 10-inch pie shell, all of the topping will fit. (See my note at the bottom of the recipe card for my favorite ratio on the streusel topping).

Instructions
  1. Cook sausage until well done; drain on paper towels.
  2. Prick unbaked pie shell with fork.
  3. Sprinkle sausage on bottom of crust, top with pie filling, then cheese, then brown sugar.
  4. Combine flour, butter and sugar and work with pastry mixture until it forms crumbs.
  5. Sprinkle over top of brown sugar.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: The ingredients for the streusel topping (1 cup flour, ½ stick butter and 1/3 cup white sugar) will work in a regular 10-inch deep dish pie plate. (When you’re making your own crust). It is too much topping for the unbaked shells purchased at the grocery. You may want to spread only about half of the ingredients over top.

NOTE: My favorite ratio for the topping is a little different. I prefer ½ cup flour, ¼ cup (1/2 stick butter) and 1/3 cup sugar. This provides ample topping without being too dry or too much filling.
