This was a big hit with my family! The only thing I did differently was use fresh red potatoes, parboiling them first.

This became a new Fall/Winter favorite some years ago. I typically use fresh potatoes though, and as such, have to cook those in the skillet first, then add the sausage and so on as directed. The one con I found with this dish is it doesn't taste as good the next day, so I only cook enough for one meal. As is, the recipe will feed two adults whopping portions or a family of four normal portions.

Was a huge hit with my husband and son. Easy and reminded us of a old fashioned German meal. Wonderful. I started the process on the stovetop and finished it in the oven til all the vegetables and fruit were tender.

I was surprised at how good this was! I used a full pound of smoked sausage & used fresh russet potatoes. Next time I will steam the potatoes before adding them to the skillet as it seemed to take forever for them to cook. Otherwise, this is a quick & easy recipe.

So easy and so flavorful!! I add thinly sliced carrots. This is even tasty without using caraway seeds, I have made it both ways and equally good.

This recipe was delicious! I left out the caraway seeds because I don't like them. Plus I made my own potatoe wedges using fresh potatoes. This is an easy recipe to make. I will definitely make it again.

I did not have the caraway seeds, but the meal was still good. It is a tasty mix of ingredients; a tad greasy, but still good.

I must say I was really hesitant to make this but after it started cooking and smelling good I felt better. My 3 yr old ate it right up and my husband polished off the rest. If you like vinegar then this is really good. If your not a huge fan then cut back alittle on the sauce

Followed the recipe to a T, except used fresh boiled red potatoes. This was too sweet for our taste, and I didn't care for the caraway seeds. If I did make it again I wouldn't put any sugar or seeds, and I'd slice the apple into rings.

I tried this recipe since it looked so easy and I was curious as to how the ingredients would taste together. It was absolutely delicious! very different flavor but very good. I used a Granny Smith apple like one of the commenters suggested, and I think that really added to the flavor. This recipe is a keeper and will definitely be made again.
