Baked Sausage with Apples, Potatoes and Onions

Another good one from the Dinner A Love Story cookbook. This one is very simple, but there has to be foresight to prepare since it takes a long time to cook in the oven.

Baked Sausage with Apples, Potatoes and Onions

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4


  • 3 cups Whole, small potatoes
  • 1 Onion, chopped in large chunks
  • 2 TBSP Olive oil
  • 4 sprigs Fresh thyme
  • 4 Italian Sausages, mild/sweet
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, (unpeeled) chopped
  • 2 TBSP Apple cider vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Combine the potatoes and onion in a large baking dish and toss with 1 TBSP olive oil, the leaves from the thyme, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Place sausages on top of vegetables. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, until sausage is brown on top. Using tongs, flip over the sausage and bake for 10 more minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, chop apples and toss with a little more olive oil, salt and pepper. Scatter the apples around the sausage, drizzle cider vinegar over the whole dish and bake for 5 more minutes.
  4. If desired, serve with dollops of spicy brown or Dijon mustard.
