Apple Maple Sausage Breakfast Quesadilla

Kim Biegacki


I must say, I was skeptical about trying a chicken sausage that was flavored sweet (it's not overly sweet) & it sure did surprise me. Now I buy my apple maple chicken sausage at a local butcher shop so I get it w/o casing but most grocery stores carry this now in where the other sausages & bacons are located. It is very delicious and was perfect to make as a quesadilla.

Little side note: My husband did not like the onions sliced in here and asked that next time I dice them small. He is not much of an onion fan but I enjoyed them. Next time I will take a pic of the sweet topping quesadilla.
