#BrunchWeek ~ Sausage and Fried Apples

Welcome to day 2 of Brunch Week. I'm glad to have you here and excited to share another fantastic brunch recipe with you. This one comes from my sister, Kylie. She told me about this dish when I was brainstorming ideas to make with the delicious Breeze Apples sent to me by Sage Fruit Company. Sausage and apples is always a fantastic pairing. 

See my kick-off post here for the rafflecopter information - there are TONS of great prizes, so make sure to enter!

The apples are crisp tender, and the flavor of the cinnamon goes wonderfully with them. They have a light coating and are just delicious cut into large chunks and eaten alongside the lightly sweet Johnsonville sausage links (which are pretty much the only brand of sausage I will buy - I'm not a huge fan of sausage but I loooove these links).

A tray of these sausages and apples would look beautiful on any brunch buffet.

My 2 1/2 year old loves to help me take pictures, and had a great time picking out her favorite apple from the beautiful group of Breeze Apples I was sent to cook with!

Sausage and Fried Apples

1 12-oz package maple flavored Johnsonville sausage links
2 - 3 Breeze Apples (cored, and cut into 10 pieces each)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 TBS cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp sugar
oil, as needed

  1. Cook sausage links in a large nonstick (or cast iron) skillet over medium to medium-high heat. When cooked through remove to a plate and keep warm. 
  2. While sausages are cooking combine the flour, cinnamon, cloves, salt, and sugar in a medium sized bowl. 
  3. Add enough oil to the pan to coat the bottom and increase heat if necessary so that apples will crisp when fried.
  4. Gently coat the apples, pressing flour mixture into all sides. In small batches, place apples in the hot oil, leaving plenty of space between them to allow for flipping. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes per side (all three sides that have flour on them), allowing the flour to cook and coating to crisp.
  5. Gently remove to a plate and keep warm while you prepare and fry the remaining apple slices, adding oil to the pan as needed to keep the bottom coated (scrape excess flour off the side between batches as well to try to keep the oil as clean as possible).

  1. I love savory & sweet together! Yum!

  2. Pork and apples are always the perfect combination. I know I would love to see this if I walked up to a brunch buffet.

  3. Love the spices on those apples! Such a great combination. My husband would love it.

  4. Reminds of that line... "pork chops and applesauce!" Looks delicious.
