“This is a good fall dinner recipe that is sort of a pie--I originally finished my concoction before everyone got home! If you want, you can skip a few steps and this can be served as two dishes. Also, I do make this with chicken apple sausage, but I think it would be just as good with smoked turkey sausage. I hope that you like it!”
