Apple Kielbasa


2 pounds fully cooked kielbasa sausage or Italian mild sausage

¾ cup brown (dark) sugar

1 cup chunky applesauce

20 ounces canned pineapple chunks

4 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 cloves garlic, mashed and minced

  1. Cut kielbasa into 1” pieces and combine with brown sugar, applesauce, pineapple, mustard and garlic in large skillet or you can use a slow cooker.
  2. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until sausage is hot and glazed.
  3. This should take about 10-14 minutes. 12 servings.
  4. If you want this appetizer to have some heat, add a little dat’l sauce to mix or chopped jalapeno pepper. Taste as you add heat so you do not ruin a good appetizer. Serve with lots of napkins and toothpicks.
