Sauteed Autumn Combination(s)

I make this in a vegetarian & a turkey sausage version, depending on my mood & who I'm feeding. It is very simple to make, delicious, cheap & different from a lot of what you see on the table most days. I expanded on the pioneer favourite of fried apples-n-onions, another perennial side or main at my house. The veggie version goes well with ham or pork chops/ribs and is grand beside poultry, venison, or other game.

Serves:

2 to 4

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

2
granny smith apples
1 to 2
sweet potatoes
2
sweet onions
olive oil
1 lb
turkey sausage/turkey kielbasa (option/main)
1 to 2
garlic cloves (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash, core & slice apples into thinnish wedges, about 8 per half
2
Wash & slice sweet potatoes (peel if you like, I usually do not) Slice into rounds about 1/4 inch thick
3
Peel onion, halve top to bottom, slice halves 6 to 8 each & loosen into segments
4
Warm olive oil in cast iron fry pan (the big one 12" to 14" to hold all ingredients) Add onion on low heat & sweat to anywhere from golden to fully caramelized. 20 minutes. Add sweet potato rounds to browned onions, stir in, cover. Turn the rounds/toss ofter 7 or 8 minutes, when they are browning nicely themselves.
5
When potatoes have been turned at least once -- they should be softening -- add the apple wedges to the pan, & put the lid back on for 3 to 5 minutes. You can't ruin this dish, if it goes longer, it's fine. If you like the apples a tad crispy for texture variation, that's fine too. If you like garlic, add a clove or two at this time.
6
It's done when you think so. Potatoes tender, apples softened. If you're adding the sausage or kielbasa, cut into rounds add just before the apples & garlic. Grind some pepper over the top when you serve.
