Breakfast Casserole - Dutch Oven Sausage Apple Bake

This traditional German breakfast casserole is usually baked at home, but can be easily prepared in a dutch oven.

My family has been enjoying this dish as a holiday tradition for many years, and have now started making it year round.

This is a dish you will probably prepare more than once. The sweetness of the apples and syrup is such a wonderful contrast to the flavor of the sausage links.

This recipe uses  a 12 inch dutch oven, and 32-34 charcoal briquettes.

In a conventional oven you will want to bake in a 9×12 baking dish at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Light 32-34 charcoal briquets in a starter chimney.
  2. Mix the eggs, milk, buttermilk, and melted butter with the grated apple in a large bowl.
  3. Add the sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and flour and mix thoroughly.
  4. Coat the inside of the dutch oven with canola oil and carefully pour in the batter, distributing evenly.
  5. Set this aside for about 10-15 minutes to allow the batter to rise.
  6. While you are waiting, preheat the lid of the dutch oven by adding 22-24 evenly spaced briquets and setting aside in a safe place.
  7. Now place the cooked sausage links in a spoke pattern on top of the batter, being careful not to push them down.
  8. Place the lid on the Dutch Oven and set directly over the remaining charcoal for about 20-25 minutes, turning at least once.
  9. Serve with Maple Syrup, and butter if desired.
