Apple Sausage Pie

Happy 1st day of February! 

I found this recipe for Apple Sausage Pie while surfing the net and it looked really yummy. Plus I wanted to make something special for Craig.

To start you need to make a pie crust, or cheat like I did and buy a frozen one he he! 
Just make sure you bake it a little bit, until it starts to brown. 
Next melt the butter in a pan and then add the sugar, onion and apples. Stir until tender...about 5 mins. 

In the last 30 seconds, add in the garlic and cook until fragrant. Let me tell ya...it is fragrant! Our place still smells like a damn Bucca di Beppo! he he


Next put the mix into a separate bowl and use the pan to cook up the sausage. Cook until browned on all sides, then remove from heat and blot to absorb the excess fat.

In a small bowl mix the beaten eggs and cheese. Ricotta, feta and an Italian blend of provalone, fontina and asiago.
Next spoon the sausage into the pie crust, then the apple mixture. Top it off with the cheese/eggs. 
Place into the oven at 350 degrees and bake for about 35 mins. Check with a knife...or a chopstick...like I do :)
Let stand for a bit then serve! 
This Apple Sausage Pie turned out better than I thought it would! Craig really likes it and already had two helpings lol! The cheese, apple and sausage pairs well together making it both savory and hearty.
