Tailgate Recipe: Grilled Apple Sausage with Honey Mustard Sauce

By Alma Schneider

Sausage is one of the premiere tailgating foods, found in parking lots far and wide. We at Tailgate Fan would put it up against ribs, brisket and burgers any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

So why are we messing with it? Because, you know, we can. This week’s recipe combines a couple of tailgate staples into something new and delicious. Of course a grill is involved.

Let’s see what happens when apple sausage meets honey mustard sauce.

Ingredients (sausages):

* 4  pork or chicken apple sausages

Ingredients (sauce):

* 1 tablespoon honey

* 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

* 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced

* 1 teaspoon lemon juice

2. Slice the sausages into 1/2-inch slices.

Instructions (sauce):

1. Mix sauce ingredients until fully combined.

2. Drizzle  sauce over hot sausage slices and serve with forks or toothpicks.
