Since it is maple weekend here in New Hampshire, I thought it would be appropriate to post something using the wonderful maple syrup that is made in the New England area ! You are all going to LOVE this one, WE DO! Three ingredients and a fantastic party appetizer! Great for tailgating.
1 Package smoked sausage
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups of pure maple syrup
Cut sausage into half inch rounds and place in a skillet over medium heat, sauté sausage for about 5 – 10 minutes I like them to get a little browned. Add the brown sugar and mix well getting that sugar all over the sausage. The sugar will melt on the sausages turning them into a sweet caramel-type glaze. Continue cooking for about ten more minutes.
At this point I like to transfer this mixture to a slow cooker on a low setting and add the maple syrup, stir well. You can keep the slow cooker on low or if you have a warm setting on your crockpot I would turn it to warm after about an hour.
