2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables and apple

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Trim the ends from the delicata squash. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon, then cut each half crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons. 
  • Peel the onion and cut into ½-inch-thick wedges.
  • Strip the sage leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Core and cut the apple into 1-inch pieces.

On one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], toss the squash and onion with the sage and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer. 


Prep the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.

On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], place the sausages.


Roast the vegetables, apple, and sausages

Roast until the vegetables start to soften and the sausages are browned but not yet cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the pan[s] from the oven. Add the apple to the vegetables and toss together, then turn the sausages. Rotate the pan[s] and continue roasting until the vegetables and apple are tender and the sausages are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes longer.

Transfer the sausages to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into 1-inch-thick slices and return to the pan. Add the “creamy” mustard vinaigrette to the sausages and vegetables, season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. When the sausages, vegetables, and apple are almost done, prepare the salad.


Make the frisée salad

  • Trim the root end from the frisée; coarsely chop the leaves.

In a medium bowl, toss together the frisée and 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the frisée salad to individual plates. Top with the sausages, vegetables, and apple and serve.
