Sausage, Apple, and Onion Mashed Potato Pie

"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.

    We LOVED this recipe! I used turkey sausage and granny smith apples. The flavors went together great- this is true comfort food. It was good the next day, too. I know BF will be requesting this again soon. Thanks!


<p>My name is Karen and I live West of Chicago (on the edge of no where!) with my DH, our two German Shepherds, and our two daughters. I love to golf, garden (except for the weeding!), am addicted to romance novels (and good science fiction), and I love to bake--usually cakes from scratch when I have the time! Since getting married, I have been cooking a lot more and am having a lot of fun trying new recipes! And&nbsp;now that I have two little ones, the&nbsp;slow cooker is my friend!&nbsp; The girls take a lot of time, but they are worth it!<br /><br />The dogs are my babies too--though they are about as big as I am! &nbsp;It has been a bit of a challenge at times, as&nbsp;they both have severe hip dysplasia, but they are great dogs and I have learned so much about arthritis! I have also learned a lot about cancer, as our female was diagnosed with bone cancer.&nbsp; She is now on three, but doing great post-chemo.&nbsp; They are both&nbsp;great with the kids and love to ***** little hands and feet! and noses! and ears! and...! <br /><br />I participated in the 2006 Fall PAC--and what a great game/program/thing! So much fun! <br /><br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting" /> <br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting" /></p>
