This type of dish is new to me, but since trying this recipe and other similar ones I have decided I like it. This recipe particular is really good. The apples and brown sugar add a nice sweetness. I think rasin bread would be good to dip in the juices. This time though I just dished up a serving of the recipe and ate as is. Also, I used turkey smoked sausage and found the dish savory and not "diet tasting". Thanks for a tasty and easy to prepare dinner.

A real taste treat from the "old country". Found a little butcher shop that grinds their own authentic German sausage, and it really adds a full, rich flavor to this recipe. Great with a dark rye bread!

Wonderful, easy recipe! This smelled absolutely delicious when it was cooking. I served it with a side of German potato salad (recipe #27415) and my apple-cranberry crunch (recipe #132923) for dessert.
