Apples, onions, and grilled sausages make a perfect meal for autumn. Try it served with boiled or roasted new potatoes, a mix of fresh vegetables, and some warm crusty bread! Use any dinner sausage--bangers, turkey, beef, bratwurst, whatever you like!

  • With a fork, poke sausages several times. Place in a pot, cover with water, and simmer over medium-high heat until cooked through, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.

  • Warm butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions, and cook until soft and translucent. Stir in apples, vinegar, and brown sugar; cook, stirring gently, until caramelized, about 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Meanwhile, place sausages on grill (or under broiler), and cook until well browned. Serve on a mound of caramelized apples and onions.

yummm!!! I really like this fall themed recipe. I live in Germany so apples and sausage is in no short suppy and am always looking for delicious recipes that include both of them. Anyways I made a few little changes I cooked the sausages in beer and then cut them lengthways and turned the heat up high which allows the beer to carmelize and crisps the outside of the sausages. I did the apple onion mixture as directed and served it on top of some mashed potatoes with the sausages on the very top. So so so so good!! Read More

This recipe was good but not exceptional. I used smoked apple sausage that was pre-cooked so I skipped the boiling step and grilled them on my George Foreman. The apple/onion mixture was good but I would have liked more of a sauce. I put the mixture into some hoagie rolls and it turned out pretty good. I'd definitely make this again but will figure out a way to make more of a sauce next time. Read More

I really enjoyed this but I made a few alterations. I used sweet italian sausages, granny smith apples, red wine vinegar & I was out of brown sugar so I used 5 tbp. red wine vinegar, 5 tbp. sugar & 1 tbp. molasses. I broiled the sausages & then sliced them on a diagonal & added them to the apple & onion mixture for a couple of minutes to coat w/ the sauce. Very good! The flavor of the sauce w/ the sausages meshed together very well. Next time I will double the onions though because they were that good. :o) Read More

I have made this two times. The first time I used bangers and followed the recipe except I split open the sausages before placing them under the broiler. I liked it alot but my husband thought it was too appley. The SECOND time I made it I used brats and 3/4 of the reccommended apples. I boiled the brats in dark beer instead of water and split them in half before placing them under the broiler. My husband loved it this time and the I liked that the brats had so much more flavor than the bangers. A very good German style dish!! Thanks for submitting it!! Read More

Hubbie and I thought this was yummy. I used pre-cooked kielbasa so skipped the boiling and just added it sliced up into the apple/onion mixture after it caramalized. Read More

I thought this was delicious. My husband thought the apples tasted "funny". I'll give it a 4 as an average score. I used a chicken and apple sausage for the dish I also think the apple and onion would go great with pork chops! Be sure to cook the onion and apple mixture at a high enough heat that it caramelizes rather than just boils down. I think mashed potatoes would be a good side with this. Read More

This was so tasty. I was looking for a quick supper and a little something different...did a search for sausages (because that's what I had out of the freezer) and what a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed this recipe and will make again often. A perfect little weeknight fall supper. Read More

I used a mix of mild and hot Italian sausages because that is what I had on hand; also used honeycrisp apples. I scaled the recipe down to 4 sausages 1 onion & 3 small apples but used the full amount of butter/vinegar/brown sugar. What that saute sauce does to the onions and apples is really good bringing out the best in those honeycrisps! My DH is a big fan of sausages and I'm not; but we both enjoyed this meal. Served it with Pan-Fried Asparagus and Cornmeal Muffins I from this website. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe Jayda! Read More
