This is a traditional dish from Normandy, France, made with Calvados, an apple-flavored liqueur. If you don't have Calvados, substitute apple juice or apple cider with a splash of cooking sherry.
1/3 cup unsalted butter
4 Macintosh apples, cored and quartered
8 boudin blanc or other mild, white sausages, pricked
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup Calvados
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large skillet, heat half the butter over moderate heat. Add the quartered apples and cook, turning, until golden and just tender. In another skillet heat the remaining butter over moderate heat. Add the sausages and coook, turning, until lightly browned. In a shallow baking dish, arrange the sausages and the apples, sprinkle with the Calvados and bake for 20 minutes or until juices run clear and sausage is cooked through.
