Sausage and Apple Pie in a Parmesan Thyme Crust

Sausage and Apple Pie in a Parmesan Thyme Crust
  • 1 (12 ounce) package mild Italian pork sausage
  • 1 large apple, diced
  • salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 (14.1 ounce) package pastry for 9-inch double-crust pie
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoons thyme leaves, roughly chopped, divided
  • freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook, breaking meat apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add apple; cook and stir until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt. Let filling stand until cooled, at least 15 minutes.
  2. Beat egg and egg yolk together in a small bowl to make egg wash.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Unroll pastries onto a lightly floured work surface. Spread and gently press 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and 1/2 teaspoon thyme over each pastry.
  5. Slice each pastry crosswise into 4 wedges. Add a generous 1/4 cup filling to each wedge. Brush edges with egg wash. Fold dough over the filling and seal the pies. Crimp edges with a fork and trim any excess dough. Arrange pies on the prepared baking sheets. Brush with any remaining egg wash; sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon thyme over pies. Season with pepper.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, rotating pans halfway through, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool before serving, about 10 minutes.
