Sausage, Sweetpotato, Sweet Onion, and Apple Roast

A delightful combination of sweet and savory, with a tiny touch of smoky heat. Perhaps best of all, it all cooks up on a single sheet pan, making cleanup almost as simple and satisfying as dinner itself.

Sausage, Sweetpotato, Sweet Onion, and Apple Roast

Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 1/2 pounds orange- or yellow-fleshed sweetpotatoes, or a combination, cut into 3/4-inch dice
1 large apple, cored and cut into 3/4-inch dice
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or more to taste
2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
6 pre-cooked chicken sausages (one and one-half 12-ounce packages), cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices
2 red or green bell peppers, or a combination, cut into 3/4-inch dice
1/2 large or 1 medium Vidalia or other sweet onion, halved (if using a whole onion) and cut into 1/4-inch slices
3 cloves garlic, sliced

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the sweetpotatoes, apple, paprika, salt, sugar, and cayenne. Add the oil, tossing to coat evenly. Transfer the mixture to a large rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, tossing halfway through.

  3. In the same large bowl, combine the sausages, bell peppers, onion, and garlic. Add the mixture to the baking sheet and cook until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes, tossing halfway through. Add more salt and cayenne to taste and serve.
