Sweet apples and maple syrup complement mellow butternut squash and hearty brown-and-serve sausage links.
tablespoons dried minced onion
medium butternut squash (2 lb), peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
medium apples, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
cup real maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
tablespoons frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
packages (7 oz each) frozen brown-and-serve sausage links (original or maple flavor), thawed, cut up
In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, layer onion, squash and apples. In small bowl, mix syrup, juice concentrate, salt and pepper; pour over apples.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 5 to 6 hours.
Gently stir in sausage. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 20 to 30 minutes or until sausage is thoroughly heated.
Choose firm-textured apple, such as Braeburn or Granny Smith, for this dish instead of a mealy apple, such as Delicious.
