"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."

"Very good favor. I used turkey summer sausage, instead of kielbasa and it was a big hit at our church potluck."

"Made this as an entree, it was "good", not great, I think if I make it again, it would be just for an appetizer"
