Roasted Sausage and Grapes are the perfect combinations of sweet and savory. Made with sweet Italian sausage, grapes, and pearl onions. This is a great low carb recipe for those watching their carb intake.
If you’ve never had roasted grapes, you are really missing out on something special. Especially when they are roasted and then finished with balsamic vinegar. I’m pretty sure you are actually drooling at this point because I know I am 🙂
This dish can be partially made ahead by pre-cooking the sausage ahead of time. You can even cook it a day or two ahead of time. I start out by melting butter and adding the herbs, the onions, and grapes. I cook them on the stove-top just until they grapes and onions are covered in melted butter.
The sausages brown in the oven while the grapes and onions release their sweet flavors while cooking. I top it all of with a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. This recipe is definitely with a try.
