Sausage Stuffed Apples

Sausage Stuffed Apples Recipe

I love sweet and savory flavors together and while chocolate covered bacon fits the bill, it isn’t the best for a nutritious meal idea. These Sausage Stuffed Apples are a great dinner idea and their fun packaging makes them appealing to kids. (My kids also love stuffed sweet potatoes if sweet potatoes are more of a favorite in your house.

They are easy to make ahead and can be packed for lunches (or breakfasts!) the next day. This is a fun one to have kids help with. Best served with salad or some steamed veggies.

Apples stuffed with a sausage filling! This savory and sweet combination is a satisfying meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

Ingredients

  • 4-6 apples (or 1 per person you are serving)
  • 1 lb sausage (ground italian or breakfast sage, nitrate free)
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 large rib of celery, finely diced
  • spices to taste, I used 1 tsp each of rosemary, thyme, sage, garlic powder, salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. Brown the sausage in a large skillet until completely cooked.
  3. Remove sausage and add onion and celery to pan and saute until starting to soften.
  4. Return sausage to pan, mix well and spice to taste.
  5. Drizzle with the maple syrup or honey.
  6. Cut each apple in half (don’t peel) and scoop out the seed area with a spoon or sharp knife to make each apple a “bowl.” Alternately, you can use a corer to remove most of the inside and leave the apples in tact (as pictured).
  7. Spoon some of the sausage mixture into each apple and place on the bottom of a large baking dish.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until apples are cooked and fragrant.
  9. Remove and serve with salad.
  10. Enjoy!
