Apple, raisins and spices give this tasty sausage-rice casserole a taste of autumn. We enjoy it with a green salad on a cold fall day. It would be a nice potluck dish, too—just double the recipe if needed.

"I almost forgot the brown sugar too, Kimb0! I added about half of the brown sugar, and both my husband and I liked it better without it. I think the sweetness of the raisins was enough. (I used a mix of raisins, golden raisins and dried cherries.) We really enjoyed this recipe because it was so different. I served it with the Fresh Tomato Basil Tart also from TOH."

"Five stars! I made this exactly as written and it was excellent! I think I may try adding a little sage next time, but this recipe is a KEEPER!"

"My husband and I loved this dish! I didn't have celery on hand so I substituted bell pepper. I also used pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar. YUM! Will definitely make this again."
