Applesauce/Sausage Waffles

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.


8 waffles (about 6-1/2 inches)

I can remember my mother preparing these hearty "meal-in-one" waffles when I was growing up. Now I often make them for my own clan using eggs from our chickens, and homemade sausage and applesauce.


  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1-1/3 cups milk
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil


  1. In a skillet, brown and crumble sausage until no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a another bowl, beat egg yolks lightly. Add milk, applesauce and oil; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Drain sausage; add to batter. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown.
