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.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Servings 4


  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. 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.
  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.
  4. 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.
