"Sausage & Apples" Miller family story
1 lb. ground sausage
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
This old Virginia dish is easy and delicious. Start with about a pound of
sausage meat. Form into patties and fry lightly in a pan until just browned.
Remove the sausage, pour out the fat (not in the fire) and melt some butter in
the pan, enough to barely cover the bottom. Core and slice three apples to a
thickness of about 1/4 inch and place in pan setting it over a low heat. When
apples have softened slightly add a half cup of brown sugar and a Tbsp. of
ground cinnamon. As soon as the sugar has mixed with the butter and formed a
thick syrup add back the sausage and cook for another 10 minutes or so.
