Well, I think I’m officially ready. I’ve put the Summer season behind me (even though it’s 90F today) and shifted my mind in into baking mode. I’d like to thank Al Fresco All Natural for the apple maple breakfast inspiration. Yes, time to bust more yummy warm breakfast bake dishes!
It’s like “no wearing white after labor” rule but with food. Cool creamy frozen tropical treats out (except my banana soft serve, that’s the exception. Mmmm k?). All the red, orange, and warm colored foods in. Not to mention ALL THE BAKING. Did I say that already? Haha yes, baked Apples, Pears, and Pumpkins galore. BRING IT ON!
Okay I lied. I might a few more cool salad type dishes to share, but they involve Fall fruit. So…. I’m good, right?
But let’s back up the baking train for a moment. You see, part of the reason we all love Summer is for simplicity. Fresh meals made in one bowl or pan. Yep, done. Let’s eat, fork or hands allowed.
Why not keep this concept going through Fall and Winter. One dish. One meal. Healthy. Nourishing. Ahhh yes, the breakfast bake. Protein, veggie/fruit, carbs, and more goodness BAKED to perfection.
Hence this Apple Sausage Breakfast Bake. A breakfast bake that looks like bread or dessert but actually can substitute for a FULL meal. And with minimal ingredients I might add.

Except this Breakfast Bake can be made ahead of time. It can be frozen for later. It can be used for brunch, breakfast, or dinner. Yes, a breakfast bake that takes the cake. —> I know, corniness factor slipped in. Go with it.
You probably think ….”cool, but how long does this breakfast bake take to make?” Really, we all look at the time commitment first, don’t we?
Well, I know I do. I love to cook, but when it comes to baking, I want make it in an hour or less.
This Apple Sausage Breakfast bake will fit that criteria. Duh! I made my rules, I must follow.
All you need to do is combine your favorite gluten free buttermilk pancake mix (or other flavor of choice), diced apples, and then pre cooked maple chicken sausage.
