Food Friday: Apple Kielbasa Coins

DSC_5585
There are some recipes in my box that I have had forever, like this Apple Kielbasa Coin recipe. I got the recipe at my first job 8 years ago. We were having a potluck lunch and my coworker brought in this delicious, sweet, sticky and addicting snack. I instantly requested the recipe and since then every Christmas Eve this has been a staple for my families Christmas Eve gathering. My sister who doesn't like maple syrup or the smell of maple loves this dish! It's a fairly quick and easy dish to make. I usually cut up the kielbasa the day before so it's done and ready to be cooked.

Over the years and after making these Apple Kielbasa Coins numerous times I've changed the recipe a bit to get the perfect dish. I could never find kielbasa in an exact pound so I always added a little extra meat which meant the rest of the recipe had to change a little. I use a large pan to cook these in and I add more apple juice than it originally called for. I wanted to make sure that each little coin was covered and cooked. You use the a version of the original recipe to make this dish or you can print my version.
Thank you to Nancy for this delicious recipe!

   2-13.5 ounce packages of fully cooked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into
   1/4-inch slices
   2/3 cup apple juice
   1/4 cup apple jelly
   2 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions:
In a large skillet, bring sausage and apple juice to a boil.
Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Uncover and cook 5 minutes longer.
Drain.
Add jelly and syrup; cook and stir until jelly is melted and sausage is coated.
{I usually turn off the burner and let it sit on the stove for a few minutes so the sauce thickens.}
