Well, hello there! I'm so sorry we've been so quiet here on the blog. This summer heat has been particularly difficult for me, leaving me feeling sick and weak with little energy to do anything. All I wanted to do was stay in a cool, air conditioned space and never leave. But, life must go on and I'm relieved that the heat is slowly letting up and we're finally experiencing occasional rain. I've put Bianca in charge of our Instagram and Facebook page, and we hope you've been following and enjoying all the photos and updates she's been posting.
I'm slowly getting back into the kitchen - I've missed cooking and sharing our recipes with you! Here's one we made last week. It's quite simple, and you won't break a sweat, we promise! Do try it out soon!
Pan Grilled Sausages & Apples
8 Sweet or Hot Italian Sausages, or a combination of both
2 Apples, we used Fuji apples, but you can also use Granny Smith
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
Core and slice apples into thin wedges and toss in a bowl with brown sugar, set aside. Put a non stick grill pan over medium heat, add sausages and cook until nice and brown, turning occasionally about 5 minutes. When sausages are cooked through, remove from heat and set aside.
Warm butter in a skillet, then stir in apples with brown sugar. Cook, stirring gently until caramelized, with still a little bit of crunch to it. Slice sausages as desired and mix in pan with apples. Serve with crusty bread or mashed potatoes.
