Cut of Meat: Sausage
Serves: 6
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds link Sweet Italian or Breakfast pork sausage or 2 lbs bulk sausage formed into 8 patties.
  • 6 tart apples, cored, quartered, but not peeled
  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  2. Heat the olive oil in a flameproof casserole over medium heat. Lightly brown the sausages, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat. Cut sausages into bite sized pieces. Return to the casserole or pan you have browned the sausages in or transfer sausage and juices to a baking dish. Add the apples.
