"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."

"As I prepare to make this AGAIN for the holidays, it reminds me that I should rate it. And its fantastic. So easy, I put the ingredients in a crock pot and set it on low. I dont' even bother to brown the kielbasa pieces anymore. And if I'm really in a hurry I use the mini smokies. That way I don't even have to cut it into slices!! How dang easy is that? Its always a big hit and I never have to take any home."

"Kids like this, if my daughter, niece and nephew are any indication. The Dijon mustard and ground ginger add just enough bite that it will appeal to adults, but not so much that the kids will find it too spicy."
