Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoon butter (1 stick)
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apple , coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 pound sweet Italian pork sausage , casing removed
  • 1 large onion , chopped (about 1 cup)

Directions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook for 5 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally.  Remove the apples from the skillet.
