This glazed summer sausage tastes out of this world and looks so impressive with the accordion-style slices! Sticky apricot-mustard glaze is so finger-lickin' good! Just 4 ingredients and super-easy to make!
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8 servings
  • 12 oz summer sausage
  • ½ cup apricot jam
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, mix the apricot jam, Dijon mustard and brown sugar.
  4. Slice the summer sausage three quarters of the way through (accordion style) into ⅛-inch slices, so the slices are connected at the bottom.
  5. Put the summer sausage on a baking sheet and brush with half of the glaze. Get some of the glaze in between the slices by using a pastry brush or a spoon. Reserve the remaining glaze.
  6. Put the summer sausage in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Remove the summer sausage from the oven and brush with the remaining glaze. At this point, the spaces between the slices should have opened and it will be easy to get the glaze in between the slices.
  8. Put the summer sausage back in the oven and bake for 20 more minutes.
  9. Serve this glazed summer sausage warm (it can be reheated in a microwave if needed).
