{rustic sausage, potatoes, and onions}

{i do realize that this may not be the best transition from my last post {detox}, but hey... there's a time for detox, and there's a time for sausage.}

we were given some amazing homemade sausage from my husband's landlord out at his shop... god bless dennison, minnesota. it was the perfect excuse to make a favorite winter dish... rustic sausage, potatoes and onion. comfort food at it's best.

rustic sausage, potatoes, and onions

sausage {any kind you like. i've often made this with chorizo}
around 6 potatoes, washed, skin on and cut into thick, half rounds
2 onions quartered
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
cracked pepper
fresh thyme
{sometimes i like to add a handful of garlic cloves (skin on) to roast along with the potatoes and onions}

preheat your oven to 400 degrees. heat olive oil in a skillet on the stove, brown sausage on all sides {this is just to brown, not to cook through}. toss potatoes and onions with olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme and transfer to a roasting pan {i tend to mix them in the roasting pan}.
transfer browned sausage to the roasting pan along with pan juices. roast in the oven until onions are caramelized, and potatoes and sausage are golden brown {cooking time will vary, around an hour- hour 1/2. stirring once in awhile to ensure even roasting/browning. you will know when it's done. the best part is all the caramelized bits at the bottom of the roasting pan.

serve with a cold beer, or an earthy red wine and artisan bread. garnish with a sprig of thyme.
