Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degree F. In a large skillet cook sausage and onion until sausage is brown, stirring to break up sausage. Drain off any fat. In a medium bowl combine sausage mixture, rice, rosemary, thyme, oil, and pepper; set aside.

  • Slice the tops off of each apple and a thin slice from the bottom to allow them to stand flat. Core apples, starting from the stem end, using a melon baller or small spoon, going to but not through the bottom of the apple. Use the melon baller or spoon to scoop out the apple, leaving about 1/4-inch apple shell. Chop 1/2 cup of the scooped-out apple and add to sausage mixture.

  • Place the apples in a 2-quart square baking dish. Fill with meat mixture. Pour apple juice into the bottom of the baking dish.

  • Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm in shallow dishes drizzled with cooking liquid. Makes 4 servings.
