Game Changer

Omit the cherry preserves & the co-cola. Substitute orange marmalade & ginger ale to change the flavors instantly for an equally tasty appetizer.

2 lbs Conecuh sausage, sliced
1 cup smuckers cherry preserves
1 {7.5-oz} can co-cola
3 Tbsp deli-style mustard with horseradish
2 to 3 fresh jalapeños, sliced

Brown the sausage, in batches, in a large non-stick skillet over Medium-High heat, about 8 minutes. Drain well & return to the skillet. Stir together the preserves, the co-cola & the mustard. Pour over the sausage & add the jalapeños. Cook over Medium-High heat 10 to 15 minutes or until the mixture reduces to the consistency of maple syrup. Keep warm in a slow cooker.

The Extra Point

Toss any leftovers over hot cooked rice with some salted peppers & onions for a quick weeknight meal.

    Will have to make this for Sunday’s football game, if for no other reason than co-cola. When we lived in New Orleans people laughed at me for saying co-cola.

      That’s so funny. On an episode of Tide & Tigers Today last football season, I said co-cola & the guys in the control room were laughing their heads off. My mom is from Mobile & that’s what she always said, lol. Let me know how I can help! Enjoy :)
