Sausage and Grapes Recipe

Sausage 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. Cooking the grapes makes them sweeter, softer, and add a pop of delight to a dish that could seem overly rich. 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.


I think sausage and grapes is especially tasty with toasted garlic bread, fresh rolls or buttermilk biscuits. But If you're wanting to make it a healthier entree, I suggest making it with chicken sausage and skipping the bun. Instead, it pairs well with with wild rice and roasted veggies. You could also add the Italian salad to add some more greens.

Sauges and Grapes

This is the ultimate sweet and savory entree. The salty, rich sausages combined with the sweet grapes is strangely addicting. I especially love eating it with bread, but you could easy skip the gluten and eat it with brown rice with some roasted veggies.

  3. 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.
