Skillet Sausages with Pan Seared Apples

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.

    •    4 large sausages of your choosing
    •    sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat the cooking fat in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the apples cut side down. Pan sear, turning occasionally until golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Add the sausages, onion, and mushrooms to the skillet with the apples. Cook, turning occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Pour in the chicken stock and white wine vinegar, whisk while making sure to scrape the bottom of the skillet. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add the spinach and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted, and serve immediately.
