Sausage & Apple Hash

The fall and winter vibes are hitting hard in my house.

I feel like I’m constantly chopping apples, sipping pumpkin spice coffee, or washing my hands with peppermint-scented soap. I love this time of year. It’s both Christmasy and Fall-y and beautiful and cool. I wish every month of the year could be like this.

My meals have really embraced what’s in season right now, too. I’ve been cooking with apples, Brussels sprouts, winter squash and more. The fall harvest really rivals spring produce like asparagus, peas, and herbs. I’ll take a bushel of apples any chance I can get. Stinking up the break room at work with Brussels sprout? No problemo.

This dish really encompasses a lot of what I’ve been into the last few weeks. I love chicken-apple sausage and using it with more apples & veggies means you get a really delicious dinner.

I was really looking forward to eating this on my dinner break last night. We had pizza delivered to work and although I snuck a slice (or two), I had to get my hands on this skillet dinner. I’m so glad I did—it’s delicious. You’ve got all the fall flavors and whimsical textures in one skillet.

Enjoy!
