Rebecca found this interesting. Perhaps it is the similarity to meatloaf or the use of apples–both favorite topics of hers these days. I was surprised she chose it though: rings get no respect among my children as food items. You can shape the ring by hand rather than dirtying another dish to make this meat loaf like dish.
Apple Sausage Ring
2 pounds bulk sausage
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups cracker crumbs
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup finely chopped onions
Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Press lightly into a greased ring mold. Turn out onto shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Drain. You can make ahead and partially bake the day before if you choose to have it as a breakfast item the next day.
