Recipe by Dwynnie
This is a good fall dinner recipe that is sort of a pie--I originally finished my concoction before everyone got home! If you want, you can skip a few steps and this can be served as two dishes. Also, I do make this with chicken apple sausage, but I think it would be just as good with smoked turkey sausage. I hope that you like it!

I'm thrilled that I tried this recipe! I was craving something like this and this exceeded my expectations. I didn't want to run out for chicken apple sausage so I used spicy pork sausage that I had on hand, drained and blotted to remove any extra fat. I assembled the dish the night before and baked it the next day. I wouldn't change a thing and look forward to making this again with any kind of sausage. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

- Heat the oil in a skillet and saute the garlic, onion, and apple until slightly carmelized and the apple is starting to soften.
- Keep the potatoes warm if they are cooked.

- Mash the potatoes with the butter, milk, sour cream, salt, and parsley.
