1 9-inch deep-dish pie shell
1/2 pound lean seasoned sausage
1/2 chopped onion
4 tablespoons butter

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 to 2 egg yolks
1 to 2 whole eggs
1/2 cup milk or Half and Half

If using frozen pie shell, thaw first. Sauté onion in butter until clear. Add sausage and sprinkle with brown sugar. Break sausage into small pieces while cooking. Drain sausage well on paper towels. Place in thawed pie shell.
Sauté apples in a little butter, 2 to 3 minutes. Spread apples over sausage. Next, sprinkle cheese over apples. Beat eggs and dairy product. Pour over mixture in pastry shell. Sprinkle with seasoning.
Bake at 350 degrees and cook for 25 to 35 minutes or until a tester in center comes out clean.
