Apple Breakfast Bake

  • 4 large apples (cored  & chopped)
  • 1# sausage or ground pork
  • juice from 1 lemon
  •  1/2 cup+ raisins
  • 1/2 cup+ pecan or walnut pieces  (chopped)
  • Coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Almond meal

Set oven to 350*.  Place raisins in small bowl and toss with lemon juice.  Set aside.  Cook sausage or ground pork.  Drain.  Drain raisins.  Combine raisins, meat, apple, and nuts, mixing thoroughly.  Spread in a 9″x13″ pan.  Sprinkle with cinnamon, spread little dollops around dish, and sprinkle with almond meal.  Cover with foil.  Bake for ~25 minutes, uncover, and bake for another 5 minutes.

Can be eaten as is, or if you’re including dairy in your nutrition, a good dollop of yogurt or a splash of Homestead Creamery whole milk would make it pretty yummy.  This is a recipe that you can really play with.  Experiment with different dried fruits, meats, and even fruit.  I’d stick with mostly apple, but throwing in a bit of a firm pear might be interesting.
