This is a wonderful Potato, Apple and Chicken Sausage bake for anyone who loves a good meat and potatoes meal.  A delicious midweek meal with minimal effort but maximum taste!

How was your Easter?  I had a wonderful day with family. I had brunch at my aunt and uncle’s house and then dinner with my in-laws.  I did a pretty good job of pacing myself with the eating which is something new for me as every holiday I normally stuff myself ’til I feel sick.  I think I finally learned my lesson and I was proud of myself!  I can’t wait to share some new spring recipes with you soon that I whipped up this past weekend for all of the Easter festivities.

The cut up veggies ready to venture into the oven.

 If you still have family and friends visiting and are looking for an easy recipe to feed your house guests then I have the perfect meal for you today.  The flavors in this Potato, Apple and Chicken Sausage Bake are amazing and it is now a treasured family favorite.  I was a little nervous about how I would like it as I’m not a huge meat and potatoes meal type of person but this has completely won me over.  Do you want to know what the best thing about this meal is?  It it great served for lunch or dinner, but the sausage and potatoes also make this a perfectly acceptable breakfast dish.  The aroma while it is cooking is unbelievably good!  This dish comes straight out of Cabot Creamery’s new cookbook and is a big ‘ol plate of comfort food.

Cabot Creamery Cookbook Review and Giveaway

I heart cheese, specifically Cabot cheese, which is exactly why I am beyond excited that Cabot Creamery has been so generous to sponsor a Cookbook and Cheese giveaway right here at Wishes and Dishes!  That’s right – the lucky winner will receive a copy of their new cookbook and a $25 Cabot Gift Box of goodies.  Free cheese anyone?!  Very recently, I became a proud member of the Cabot Cheese Board.  I can’t even express how much I love the cheese that Cabot produces and also what they stand for, in general.  My favorite cheese dishes always taste better with Cabot Cheese and that is 100% the truth. I especially like Everything Bagel cheese and the plain extra sharp cheddar, which brings a sharp tangy taste to different dishes.  I would love for you to have a box of their cheese delivered right to your doorstep along with this cookbook full of stories, beautiful photographs and 150 delicious recipes from their dairy farm families.  Oh, it would make a great Mother’s day gift, as well!

Delicious Cabot cheese melted all over the top.

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
This is a wonderful Potato, Apple and Chicken Sausage bake for anyone who loves a good meat and potatoes meal. A delicious midweek meal with minimal effort but maximum taste!
  • 1½ pounds small potatoes (I used red) cut into 1-inch chunks (about 6 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 fully-cooked chicken sausage links, sliced (12-ounces)
  • 2 golden delicious or Gala apples,cored and cut into 1–inch chunks (leave peels on)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 4 ounces Cabot Alpine Cheddar or Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar shredded (about 1 cup)
  • Parsley for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Toss potatoes, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl until coated. Spread out in a large heavy roasting pan. Roast 20 minutes, stirring once or twice. While potatoes roast, stir sausage, apples, mustard, honey and vinegar together in the bowl.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Remove roasting pan from the oven. Scrape potatoes up from the pan with a spatula.
  4. Add sausage, apples and the mustard mixture to the potatoes and toss to combine.
  5. Return to the oven and bake, stirring once or twice until the potatoes and apples are tender and the glaze is caramelized, 30 to 35 minutes.
  6. Scrape potato mixture into the center of the roasting pan. Top with cheese and return to the oven only until melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy!

    Lovely recipe, Ashley! I see that by being away from visiting my favorite blogs,I missed a great deal here!
    We love cheese, and I will be looking for Cabot’s.

    I made something really similar to this a few weeks ago (minus the cheese, plus some other vegetables) and it was awesome. Love the apples roasted along with the potatoes!

    We definitely love our mean ‘n potatoes in this house – a a one-tray meal always makes me happy (as does melty, cheesy goodness). Yum!

    I think that is also what I’ve learned to do on holidays…pace myself! Great potato idea for the holidays or for any night when you’re craving comfort!

    What a cool giveaway! And good job on not eating until you feel sick. I’m working on that, too! And what a delicious looking dish. 🙂

    Oooo I love the apples and cheese in here! What an awesome sounding meal!

  18. April 8, 2015 at 8:10 PM #

    Looks delicious! I pretty much can’t stop eating potatoes once I start so no need to convince me on this! Sounds like you had some great eats during Easter. We had a great time in Chicago (no mishaps) and the food there was so good! : )

  19. April 8, 2015 at 8:40 PM #

    Sounds like you had a great Easter!! I almost forgot it was Easter until Good Friday; in Germany, we take this stuff seriously – Friday and Monday are bank holidays but in the US, it can totally pass you by, business as usual! Your potato chicken sausage bake looks terrific!!

    Cabot is the best, I can’t have too much in the house because I’ll eat all of it in one sitting. I still have yet to try their Everything Bagel cheese. But this potato dish looks amazing and I’m thinking I’ll put an egg on top. 🙂

      That’s such a good idea, Kellie!
