There is not a meat-eating or Paleo enthusiast alive, who does not adore sausages, it just cannot be so. Sausages are a perfect food for eating on their own, next to a loaded sweet potato or served with freshly chopped onions and bell peppers.
More recently, as we have just found out, sausages are also fabulous when cooked in a hot skillet with onions, mushrooms and seared apples with a little chicken stock and white wine vinegar to boot. It is a dish that will be made time and time again, for the flavor is as superior, as the kind of sausage you include in the pan. Sausage and apples are kid-friendly as well – keep that in mind for any cave-baby invited to lunch or dinner.
