Baked Apples and Sausage

Apple, apples everywhere. I spent last Saturday canning the most wonderful applesauce. Ten varieties of apples, no sugar. Of course I had apples leftover, I planned it that way. I still had apple cake to make and these wonderful stuffed apples.

I found this recipe at - The Old Farmer's Almanac. So easy and delicious. Sausage and apples, how fall can we get.

6 servings
print recipe

1 pound bulk sausage ( I used Jimmy Dean Sage, but anything you like)
6 tart apples (Granny Smith because that's what I had, or other baking apple)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Brown the sausage in a skillet, drain if necessary. Wash the apples and cut off the tops. Remove the cores and hollow out the apples, leaving just a 1/2-inch thickness. Chop the removed apple flesh and mix with the browned sausage, brown sugar, cinnamon, and lemon rind. Fill the apples with the mixture, place into a baking dish, cover, and bake at 37 degrees F until tender, about 40 minutes.
