"Delicious - didn't need the sour cream or the syrup. Tasty for any meal. The 18 min. cook time in a 10" skillet worked perfectly. Hubby really liked this... I used turkey sausage to cut down on the saturated fat."

"I cut this recipe in half and placed it in a 7 inch skillet. I used whole wheat pastry flour & skim milk. I also substituted the sugar for maple syrup. It has the perfect amount of sweet and salty."

"This was absolutely delicious. My husband ate it w/o syrup and enjoyed it as much as my kids who aite it with (believe it or not) a small amount of syrup. It would be even easier if the sausage was cooked the night before which is what I will do the next time."

"This recipe was super good. I was a little doubtful about the apples too, but they make the perfect complement to the cheese and sausage, and the flavors blend very well. I baked it for 23 minutes and had no problems with it being done. I'm wondering if some people might have baked it in frying pan that was smaller than 10 inches and so it was thicker? I baked it in a 9.5" saute pan."

"I baked it for 30 minutes, but it still hadn't set when I took it out so that the top wouldn't get over-brown. I'm not sure what went wrong. It tasted fine otherwise."

"My family loves "German pancakes" so I was excited to make this for them. They loved it! In fact my 8 year old said, "Mom, I didn't know if I would like the apple in this, but it is like the best part!" We didn't even top it with syrup or sour cream, it was THAT good! Thanks for a great (BLD-breakfast, lunch, dinner) recipe!"
