Sausage, Apple, Sweet Potato

This is a casserole dish we had growing up.  Easy, almost dump and cook easy but not quite.  The only issue we have is that Sweet Pea doesn't like sweet potatoes. :(  That means that I don't make it nearly often enough to suit Rosie Jane.  I try to make it if Sweet Pea is eating elsewhere or is gone for some reason.  Tonight we're having this and Sweet Pea is going to have baked potatoes.

Sausage, Apple, Sweet Potato
serves 4-5

1 12oz. roll of breakfast sausage (I use Jimmy Dean low fat)
1 40 oz. can sweet potatoes/yams
apples - if you can find it, a 14 or 15 oz can of sliced apples; I can't find those anymore so I used 4-5 small apples thickly sliced
brown sugar

Cook the sausage through.  Put it into a casserole dish along with the mostly drained sweet potatoes and (drained) apples.  Gently mix.  Top with a sprinkling of brown sugar.  Bake at 325* for 25-20 minutes or until heated through.

This can also be cooked in the crockpot.  I've mixed everything in, topped with the brown sugar, then cooked on low for about 3-4 hours.  Makes it easy for when you have time earlier and need to be out right before dinner.  You don't want to cook it too long in the crockpot.
