This is so easy to make and so delicious! Buttery hash browns form the crust for the yummy cheese and sausage filling. It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
1 lb. bulk pork sausage
1/3 chopped onion
1 cup (8 oz.) cottage cheese
3 eggs, lightly beaten
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
In a large bowl, combine hash browns, butter and bouillon. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 10-inch pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, drain. In a large bowl, combine the sausage mixture, cottage cheese, eggs and cheese.

1 box (2 count) refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
6 – 8 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples (I used a lot of apples)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 – 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour (depending on how many cups of apples used)
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Place 1 pie crust in a 9 or 10-inch disposable foil or metal pie plate (do not use glass). Press crust firmly against side and bottom of pie plate.
In a large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients and spoon in crust-lined pie plate
Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge pressing edges together to seal; flute.
Tightly wrap unbaked pie in 3 layers of plastic wrap, making sure all sides of pie are completely sealed and unexposed.
Next, place pie in gallon-size plastic bag or wrap pie in aluminum foil; label with the following information: Apple Pie and expiration date of pie which is 2 months after pie is frozen. Place pie in freezer; pull out when ready to bake..
When ready to bake pie, heat oven to 450 degrees. When oven is preheated, remove pie from freezer; cut a few slits in top crust and place in oven. Do not thaw pie.
Bake 25 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees; bake 40 to 50 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and apples are hot and soft when pricked with a fork.
