    I wanted to try a fatty different than the heart attack on a plate that me and my brother enjoy so much.

    I know that pork and fruit go along very well, i was thinking apples???

    Thats a great thought! I make this mean stuffing with sausage, apples a bag of mixed fruit and some fresh sage. I think you definitely have something going.

    As you mentioned, apples work well with pork. Peaches also are very good. I put peaches in my rib sauce, so I know the flavors will work, I just don't know how you would integrate them into the sausage.
    Also, pineapple comes to mind.

    I would think the apples would be good. I make a stuffing with sausage and apples also, I think you would want to chop the apples pretty small so they get done.

    I'd go with apples too....like shellbell says, chop them small.

    Sometimes when doing a whole hog, I like to fill the cavity with apples, onions and brown sugar......it's pretty tasty.[​IMG]

    Great idea doing the apples. Maybe slace them up and cooking them a little in some brown sugar then stuff it in the sausage once it cools.

    Great Idea there! I've always thought plums and prunes went well with pork, I may have to try that, I bet if the whole thing was rolled in philo pastry too it would be even better..

    When stuffing was mentioned, a variation of turkey stuffing came to mind. sounds very tasty already.

    How about a Mango and Habanero Salsa with this? I have found that a peach, orange, or mango salsa with a bit of a bite from peppers do the trick.

    I always use apples great choice. Red delicious works great with the JD hot fatty! Remember my fatty, apple, cheese tarts? Apples are best shreaded. Trust me they are wonderful in a fatty!

    If you use a sour apple the addition of raisins or currents or even cranrasins is also very good with finely chopped nuts. Something sweet to offset the sour.

    Just posted a series of rolling pix today that just happens be be apple and cheese.
