Not a looker but pretty darn good
Fix –It and Forget-It Big Cookbook Copyright 2008
2 lbs. smoked kielbasa I used lite
3 cups unsweetened applesauce I used chunky and it was sweetened
½ cup brown sugar I used less
3 medium onions, sliced
1. Slice kielbasa into ¼-inch slices. Brown in skillet. Drain.
2. Combine applesauce and brown sugar.
3. Layer kielbasa, onions and applesauce mixture in slow cooker.
4. Cover. Cook on Low 4-8 hours.
This isn't the most attractive dish but I really enjoyed the blend of flavors. My husband must have enjoyed it too since he didn't even leave any leftovers and usually he leaves something behind for me to take for lunch. My son wasn't into it. He likes applesauce but he just didn't care for it.
I wasn't overly thrilled with the other Fix-It and Forget-It book that I own so why did I buy this book? Who knows? I'm an enigma. I'm drawn to some cookbooks and often I have regrets later but so far I'm not regretting this one. It's not as slapdash as the other book. There's less repetition of recipes. It's organized a bit better. And it's huge!
Question of the Day: Do you eat leftovers? I'm always amazed when people say that they won't eat leftovers. I love leftovers. I especially love when I find some random leftover that I forgot about in the freezer and I get to enjoy it all over again.
