Mid Week Treats

It's too bad we get cheated out of a long weekend this year with Canada Day falling on a Wednesday.
It is still nice to have a vacation day and enjoy a leisurely brunch, a real treat in the middle of the work week.

We recently had brunch at my in-laws. They served this wonderful dish that they have been making for years. It was so memorable I decided to recreate it at home.
You could substitute the apples with pears, peaches or plums.

Served alongside warm pancakes this brunch will be the perfect start to your day off.

Happy Canada Day!

Caramelized Apples and Sausages
  • 1 package of breakfast sausages
  • 3 apples cored peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup each of brown sugar and maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

In a frying pan cook the sausages until golden and done in the centre.
Remove and set aside.
Slice sausages in half if too long.
Add the remaining ingredients to pan.
Cook over low heat until sauce begins to thicken.
Return sausages to pan and cook on low for about 10 to 15 minutes until sauce has caramelized and apples are soft and golden.

Serve alongside warm pancakes.
