 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         sausage
    2      tablespoons   yellow onions -- minced
    3      tablespoons   packed brown sugar
    1                    garlic clove -- minced
    8                    bacon slices
    8                    green apples -- baking type
 
 * Use all ground bulk sausage or a combination of bulk and mild to hot
  Italian sausage. If using hot Italian sausage, you may wish to omit the
  garlic.
 
      Brown sausage, add garlic and onion. Stir for 3-4 minutes until onion
  begins to turn light brown and is softened. Drain the mixture thoroughly.
      Wash and core but do not peel the apples. Stuff the cored apples with
  the sausage mixture. Sprinkle with brown sugar and top with the bacon
  slices which have been chopped into small pieces.
      Put into an oven-safe baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about
  40-45 minutes or until apples are soft.
