View Full Version : Chicken sausage and vegetables over mashed potato recipe from 2000 or before

03-08-2003, 09:06 AM
Can anyone help? I am trying to find a recipe with sausages ( I think chicken apple or maybe turkey?) with sauteed vegetables like red cabbage and I think carrots. I think it was served over mashed potatoes. A search of the BB brought up a reference to another similar recipe from 2001, but that's not the one I am after. I know I made it in 2000 or earlier becasue we moved that year. Does anyone know the one I mean?

Or, has anyone tried the other one over mashed potatoes?

Jena, is this the one you found from 2001? You know, I'm wondering if it is the same one you were thinking of. It says it's from April 2001, but on page 186. What I'm thinking is that it was in the "Back to the Best" column which means you could have made it in an earlier year. I don't know; just a thought.

All the other ones I found involved rice or pasta.

Perhaps this is the one you're looking for? I changed the sausage to turkey sausage since I had difficulty finding the chicken sausage. We have this frequently since we love the onions over potatoes.

Thanks for both of those. I thought it might be the same recipe, but I checked and it's not in Back to the Best - though that one sounds good too. So does the other one with the onions, it may actually be the one I am thinking of, not sure. Thanks very much for posting these though, I'll have to decide which to try first...
