Happy November Everyone!
Can you believe it? The months of 2011 are racing by. Pretty soon we’ll be lighting off fireworks for New Years!
These were one of the appetizers I served at my Apple a Day dinner party. They were a huge hit, and probably one of the best dishes of the evening.
Antipasto Skewer of Chicken Apple Sausage, Roasted Tomato, Artichoke Heart, and Olive
~These skewers are dairy-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free!
- 12 oz. Chicken Apple Sausages (I used Applegate Farms because they use minimal ingredients, they were organic, and I already knew that I loved the taste)
- 1 small carton cherry tomatoes
- 1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, drained
- olives of choice (I used a mix of kalamata and manzanilla olives)
- 1 teaspoon oil of choice, for pan
- wooden skewers
First, slice the fully-cooked chicken sausages into 1 inch slices. Put 1 teaspoon oil on pan and heat to medium-high. Place each sausage piece on pan and brown each side, about 5 minutes. Next, add the cherry tomatoes to the pan and cook slightly until it has turned slightly brown in spots, about a minute.
Take your wooden skewers and skewer the olive, artichoke heart, tomato, and then the sausage. Look at the picture below for help. Arrange on baking dish and cover with foil. Heat sausages in 350* oven for about 5-10 minutes or until warm.
You can also prepare these the day before and simply heat them in the oven before serving.
