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 took others' advice and did half the brown sugar. Since I only had dried parsley, I did the conversion, which would've made it about 5 tsp. That seemed like a lot so I only did 3 tsp. I also lowered the amount of onion (personal preference). I used craisins instead of raisins. I only used 2.5 C of rice (all I had left). I don't normally change a recipe so much but these seemed like minor changes in the overall grand scheme. We LOVED this. "Autumn Sausage casserole" is a very apt name. We thought it was a tad dry, but not overly dry. Not sure how to fix the dryness issue, but we're still going to make this again either way!"

"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."

"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."

"This is a family favorite in our house! I usually substitute carrots for the celery and add peppers. I also sometimes will switch out craisins for the raisins. SO yummy. Flavors are very warm and not too sweet."
