Sausages and Grapes

Sausages and grapes you ask? Why yes! It may sound like a strange combination but it’s 100% completely, unbelievably delicious.  The sweet and salty combo is truly addicting. Finished off with a red wine and balsamic sauce makes it the perfect dish to eat with toasted garlic bread. Another reason I love this dish is the ease in making it. From start to finish it takes 45 minutes.

Recipe: Sauges and Grapes

Prep Time: 10 minutes      Cook Time: 25-30 minutes    Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons oil
4 spicy Italian sausages
1/2 yellow onion, thick slices
2 cups red grapes
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
pepper
1/3 cup red wine
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a medium sized and oven proof saute pan, heat the oil at medium heat. Add onion slices, grapes, thyme, salt and pepper.  Saute for 1-2 minutes. Place sausages on top of onion and grape mixture.

Roast for 25-30 minutes or until sausages are done. Halfway through flip sausages and mix the onion and grape mixture so it doesn’t burn.

When the sausages are done place the pan on the stove top. Make sure to put an oven mit on the handle, so you don’t burn yourself! Add the wine and balsamic vinegar.  Turn heat on medium and reduce sauce for 2-3 minutes.

Enjoy with garlic bread, company potatoes, and an Italian salad!
