Sausage* and Apple Skillet

This surprisingly delicious skillet recipe features all the big tastes: it’s sweet, it’s sour, it’s salty, and it contains the silky smoothness of one of my favorite cooking oils.  Plus, the addition of sauerkraut a fermented food, is great for your gut!

It only takes a few minutes to throw together and it’s great for pretty much any meal: breakfast, lunch or dinner … which means it’s a keeper!
