Fried Sausages and Apples

I am so excited to be sharing this awesome Fried Sausages and Apples recipe from “The Hamilton Cookbook” today! Laura’s new cookbook is the ultimate guide to the world Alexander Hamilton lived in with a bit of history and a whole lot of great recipes right from classic cookbooks from the time! If you have a Hamilton fan in your life, this is the perfect gift to get them for the holidays!

This cookbook is really awesome, as a huge Hamilton fan myself having read the book by Chernow and listened to the album on repeat for months, finding out there was a cookbook with recipes that people during that time frame would have been eating was so interesting.  One of my favorite things I learned when I was reading the book was simply just that “pie” used to be spelled “pye”.  Yup, the littlest things really amuse the history nerd inside of me.

The recipe I chose to share straight from the cookbook was the Fried Sausages and Apples.  Although this recipe only has two ingredients, it is still packed full of so much flavor.  I will definitely be making this a regular addition to the meal rotation at my house and I can’t wait to try more of the recipes in the book!

    Madi, I love your version of fried sausages and apples. Plus, we’re both history nerds, so your focus on spelling (pye vs pie) really made me smile. Glad you joined in the #HamiltonEats fun. Hope you have wonderful holidays filled with joy .
