We enjoyed this very much. I used fajita chicken sausage which gave a nice balance with the sweetness of the apples & onions. We will be making this often!

I just made this and find the recipe to be clear and easy to follow. There are not a lot of ingredients, and the dish is still tasty. I did not have sage, but I did add sliced mushroom. I also used the fried apples I made last night, from here, which had a little light brown sugar added to the plate. I really liked this meal

Very easy to make, will leave out the 2 tablespoons of butter next time, it took the taste away from the sausages.

I had this tonight 1-18-10. I wasnt as thrilled as I had hoped. I would make it again though. Was something different. I think next time I will leave out the sage.

I left the sage out & accidently put apple cider 'vinegar' instead of juice... I just added some palm sugar & a little mild Indian curry powder, my dinner guests loved it! I'll be doing this one again, nice & easy.

I made this cause I thought the kids would like it. No such luck, my husband really didn't enjoy it either. I on the other hand thought it was divine. So I will make again, but only for myself. Sage is not kid friendly!
