Just the aroma of this cooking at breakfast takes me back to my days growing up in Pennsylvania. This recipe was a favorite at home and at church breakfasts.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup diced apple, unpeeled
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups water, divided
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Maple syrup

Directions

In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium-high heat until sausage is no longer pink and onion is tender. Remove from skillet; set aside.
Discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings. Add 2 tablespoons butter, apple, thyme, sage and pepper to drippings; cook over low heat until apple is tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sausage mixture. Set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Combine cornmeal, salt and remaining water; slowly pour into boiling water, stirring constantly. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Stir in sausage mixture. Pour into a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Refrigerate, covered, for 8 hours or overnight.
Slice 1/2 in. thick. Sprinkle flour over both sides of each slice. In a large skillet, heat remaining butter over medium heat. Add slices; cook until both sides are browned. Serve with syrup. Yield: 8 servings.

"This is an absolutely fabulous breakfast treat. We make our own maple syrup and this goes with it so well."
