I have made this several times, although I have adapted it slightly. Not a big fan of mustard, I omit the honey mustard as well as the pepper. I have also lowered the temperature to 400° and started the sweet potato and sausage, giving them a head start before adding the apple. If you don't, I assure you that the apple will be cooked to mush when the sweet potatoes are finally ready. [And to be precise, I also use yams instead of sweet potatoes]. I add the apple when the yams yield to a fork and are within approximately 15 minutes of being done. I like my yams to be soft while allowing the apple to retain a little firmness, and since the apple is softer it takes much less time to cook. I also vary the seasoning, using McCormick's Greek seasoning. Although not what one might not consider a breakfast dish, I have served this to company, with many compliments, for breakfast, lunch and dinner and feel that it makes this adaption easily. With the changes I've mentioned, I would give this between a 4 and 5 star rating. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly as written though added a little extra honey mustard to match the large quantity. A lot of effort dicing sweet potatoes for just a so-so dish. Husband didn t care for it either. Read More

This could have been good but whoever wrote the instructions and suggested 45 to 55 minutes was way off. I went with 45 to be on the safe side. Way overcooked. Apples were sauce and the sweet potatoes were dried out. Threw the leftovers away. I don't think I will make it again. Read More

Made as recipe was outlined but doubled the amount and used honeycrisp apples. If I make again, will cover the pan with foil for 30 mins, then uncover to brown for 10. This seemed like a high temperature for the type and amount of food. Also, I liked the honey mustard sauce but added a bit more because it was so yummy! Read More

My husband and I both liked this but we agreed that the chicken apple sausage didn't add much. Perhaps sweet Italian sausage as another reviewer used might be more flavorful. It was a little dry, so perhaps a little more mustard would help. It smelled delicious as it was baking! Read More

I substituted kielbasa for the chicken sausage, added two chopped onions to the recipe. Omitted the honey mustard and seasoned with a drizzle of good EVOO, salt, pepper, tsp of fennel seed, and a squeeze of fresh orange juice and a tsp of brown sugar on the apples. Baked at 400 F for 1 hour and added the apples after the potatoes were fork tender for another 15 minutes. Seeded mustard on the side. Easy and tasty. Read More

I turned it down to 400 and cooked it for 30 minutes with foil, then another 15 without. The potatoes were perfect but when I make it next time, I’ll probably wait to put the apples in later. Read More

This was awful. The potatoes were hard as rocks and the apples turned to mush. No, I will not make it again! Read More
