Recipe Review: Sausage with Apples, Sauerkraut and Onions

12 Feb
As soon as I saw this on one of my favorite food shows, Mad Hungry, I knew that I was going to make it immediately.  We love sausage in this house.  I made this several months ago during the fall months and it was a perfect meal for the season.  But, I got to tell you this would be great year round because it is so tasty.  And, as I said before, my family loves sausage and could eat it everyday if possible.  I did make a few changes to the original recipe. I made it with smoked sausage and served with boiled potatoes.
Sausage with Apples, Sauerkraut and Onions
(adapted from Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn)

1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
1 large white onion, thinly sliced
2 crisp red apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup apple cider
1 pound sauerkraut
3 large sour pickles, quartered, for serving
1 Kirby cucumber, peeled and sliced lengthwise into eighths, for serving

Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, and add 1 tablespoon oil. Cook sausage until browned and heated through. Transfer to a plate, and cover to keep warm. Add remaining tablespoon of oil to skillet if necessary. Add onion, and cook for 3 minutes. Add apples, stir, and cook until softened, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in cider, and cook for 1 minute. Add sauerkraut, and heat until warmed through, about 2 minutes.  Transfer sauerkraut to a warm serving platter, and top with the sausages. Serve with pickles, cucumber, and mustard. (Sausages and sauerkraut can be kept warm, covered, in a 250-degree oven for up to an hour.)
