Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • ½ lb pork breakfast sausages
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, washed & sliced
  • ⅓ cup Gallo Riesling
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ grated orange peel (optional)
  • Dash, nutmeg
  1. Brown the sausages on all sides in a large skillet. Set aside.
  2. In the pan with the sausage drippings, melt the butter over medium heat, then add the apples. Saute until the apples start to brown, about 5 minutes or so. Add the wine and the sausages, and continue to simmer until the liquid is reduced in half. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon, orange peel (if using), and nutmeg. Gently stir until the brown sugar completely has dissolved and formed a sauce.
