Apple Sausage Biscuits are an easy breakfast biscuit you can grab on the go. Just take one out of the freezer and warm up for a delicious biscuit filled with apples and Italian sausage. A great addition to any breakfast or brunch.
Apple Sausage Biscuits are great for breakfast on the go but also perfect for lazy weekends. Before Taylor went back to school, she found this cookbook with Abbie from NCIS on the cover. I told her to look through it and find something that sounded good to try and she found a recipe for what were called apple sausage muffins. We tried them, but they weren’t muffin like at all, more like a biscuit made in a muffin tin. I wanted to change the apple to sausage ratio so we tried them again with a few modifications here and there and came up with a savory biscuit with just a hint of sweet from the apples. She froze the rest of the batch and took them back to school with her. Now she just takes one out of the freezer and microwaves it for a great breakfast on the run.
These are great if you are a biscuit lover and just a little different from the general breakfast or brunch fare.
How do you make Apple Sausage Biscuits
Start with Italian sausage, a mixture of hot and sweet, which is less greasy than breakfast sausage and works great with apples. These are so good that I’ll make extra sausages next time we grill out and freeze them for when I want to make these again. Next use an apple that you like to eat, I used Fuji. I chopped part of the apple very small and part a little larger so that you get some apple chunks every so often. You would think that these might need cheese, or even butter, but I promise you, they are great just the way they are. Savory and flaky. Now that you have cooked sausage and chopped apples, you are ready to make your biscuits. The biscuit is like most using cold butter but instead of just buttermilk, you will add some yogurt. Then add the sausage and apples and bake.
If you don’t have a non-stick muffin pan, you will probably want to use muffin liners. We liked them best in the non-stick pan. While they may not look very pretty, they are fabulous.
