That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Apple Sausage Cheddar Monkey Bread! I came across this fall recipe when I was relaxing with a couple of my fave magazines this weekend. I typically find my creative inspiration from magazines, whether it’s decorating or cooking. Ever since I was a teenager I turned to magazines to unwind and enjoy a little “me time.” In high school I enjoyed fashion magazines; today I scour food and decorating magazines.
This weekend I curled up on the couch with Real Simple® and Sunset® magazines. Do you ever choose a magazine simply because the cover is pretty and inspires you? I know the old saying says, “Don’t judge a book (or magazine in this case) by its cover” but I frequently choose a magazine because of the cover photo! When I was shopping at our Jewel-Osco store, both covers caught my eye and I had to take them home with me.
This month’s issue of Real Simple features a section on apples and since my daughters have been bugging me to go apple picking, I thought I’d check out the recipes at the back of the magazine. As soon as I saw the fall recipe for Apple Sausage Cheddar Monkey Bread, I knew it would be a dish my hubby would love!
Gala apples are my favorite! Did you know that all of the apples grown in the U.S. are handpicked? There aren’t any harvesting machines! I had no idea but I learned this while thumbing through the magazine.
Apple Sausage Cheddar Monkey Bread is so easy to make! Fry up 8 ounces of crumbled sausage in a 10-inch cast iron skillet until browned. Add 2 small apples, diced, and cook until soft. Put the mixture into a bowl and then add refrigerated canned biscuit dough, cut into 1-inch pieces. Transfer the mixture back into the skillet.
Sprinkle 1 and 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese over the top of the mixture, and put it in a 425 degree oven to bake for 15-20 minutes! So easy, and so full of flavor! I love cooking in the kitchen by myself. It’s just another way that I like to de-stress and spend a little “me time.”
