Pan-Seared Sausages with Apples

Prep Time

    •    Prep and cook time: 30 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    1/2 cup water
    •    1 tbsp cider vinegar
    •    1/2 tsp fennel seeds
    •    4 sweet Italian sausages
    •    1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    •    salt and freshly ground pepper
    •    2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the sausages and cook over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until browned but not cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the water to the skillet. Cover and cook until the water is nearly evaporated and the sausages are firm, about 7 minutes. Add the apples and fennel seeds and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and browned, 8 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Serve in bowls atop the cheesy Grits.
