"I make this often but prefer sliced Chicken Apple Sausage browned in a small amount of butter. Everyone loves it. It's also very quick to heat the sauce ingredients in the same pan used to brown the sausage after wiping it out. I then put the sausage into the sauce to heat up. Pour heated sausage into a chafing dish or small crockpot to keep warm while serving."

"It's such an easy appetizer. I halved the sauce ingredients and still had plenty of the sweet, sticky stuff!"
