Apple, Sausage & Sweet Potato Bake
This is a recipe that I used to regularly bake in the oven for my family. While we are working on building our house I have not had access to a decent oven.
One day I was thinking about this dish and how much my family enjoys it, and bemoaning the fact that I could not make it for them. It was always a crowd pleaser, and so easy to pull together for dinner.
Then inspiration struck and I decided to try making it in my slow cooker. The result was just as delicious as the oven version! My family gobbled it right up. The next time I made it I had to double the recipe to make sure everybody got enough of it.
Smoked Sausage and Sweet Potatoes
I think the two ingredients that shine through in the dish are the smoked sausage and sweet potatoes. I always prefer to pair sweet potatoes with savory ingredients. I believe it brings out the best in sweet potatoes.
The smoked sausage is a simple ingredient that adds big flavor to the dish. The apples add a nice bit of tart, and the maple syrup adds just a bit of sweetness, without making the dish too sweet.
