This is a quick weekday meal that goes well with wild rice or baked potatoes. If you do not like the anise flavor of Sambuca (shame on you!) then substitute Grand Marnier or plain cognac. The garlic scapes are a big part of this so do not try using green onions instead.
Roasted Apples with Sausages and Garlic Scapes
- 3 slices bacon sliced into thin ribbons
- 4 sweet sausages
- 6 fuji apples quartered, cored and chopped into bites
- 1 cup garlic scapes chopped roughly
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 tbsp Sambuca
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
Over low heat, fry bacon until fat is rendered and it begins to brown. Add sausages to fat and brown on all sides. Add apples to pan and over medium heat saute to golden. Add rosemary and wine, deglaze pan then reduce liquid by half. Place pan in an oven at 365 degrees and roast until sausage is cooked, about 20 minutes. Place pan back on stove top and over high heat evaporate any remaining liquid. Add liquor and ignite. When flames go out, add scapes and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
