  • Yield: 4 people 1x


A simple and delicious egg-free breakfast option.



  • 1 package of compliant chicken and apple sausage (sliced (Aidell or Sam’s Choice))
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for cooking
  • 1 cup butternut squash, cubbed (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries (or 1/4 cup dried (no sugar added))
  • 1 whole green apple (diced into cubes)
  • fresh rosemary for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven, 350°F
  2. Add cranberries (if using fresh) and squash to a baking sheet and cook in oven for 20 minutes. (If you are using dried cranberries, just add those to the skillet right before serving).
  3. While that is cooking, add 1 tbsp of olive oil to cast iron skillet and add in your sausage and apple slices and cook to desired doneness.
  4. Take out the pan with cranberries and butternut squash and add to a bowl.
  5. Add the sausage and apples on top of the butternut squash and cranberries and mix together.
  6. Garnish with fresh rosemary and salt and pepper to taste.


I cook my squash separately just so it doesn’t get mushy. Feel free to add everything to the same skillet for a quicker meal option.
