I used a maple pork sausage and 4 Granny Smith apples. A boxed corn muffin mix prepared according to the package directions and it is ready to be baked.
I was impressed that I didn't need a stick of butter or a bar of cream cheese! I am always looking for different breakfast or brunch dishes that are easy to put together as well as tasty, and I would definitely make this again.
Pure maple syrup would be divine, but I am cutting back on sugar so I used a maple agave and it was really good, too. This recipe is from The Lady & Son's Savannah Country Cookbook by Paula H. Deen.
16 link pork sausages
4-5 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
one 7 1/2-ounce package corn bread mix (prepare batter according to directions on the package)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cook sausages until done, piercing with a fork to let out fat. Drain, then arrange in a 9-inch square baking dish. Layer sliced apples on top. Pour corn bread batter over all and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until corn bread is done (mine took only 20 minutes) . Serve with warm maple syrup.
