Fall On A Plate

Perhaps I should have said "autumn" on a plate.  It sounds as if I'm advising you to trip on dinnerware.  

But you should fall all over yourself to make this dinner...pronto!  It's delish! I knew when I first saw this at My Tasty Treasures I'd be wanting to try it.  Just be sure you have plenty of hungry people to share it with because it makes a lot and the left overs are a little mushy.  

Served up with a lovely roasted acorn squash, along with the temperatures finally dropping a bit, this meal let me know that autumn, or fall, is actually finally here.  

 Here's Donna's recipe:

Roast Kielbasa Supper 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and pepper

2 pounds baby red-skinned potatoes, halved or quartered, depending on how large they are
4 large onions, quartered with root end attached
2 pounds kielbasa, cut into 2-inch pieces( I recommend one inch pieces)
4 Gala or Honeycrisp apples, cut into wedges ( I used 3 and I recommend thin wedges.)

Preheat oven to 425˚F.
In a large, shallow roasting pan, drizzle potatoes and onions with EVOO, salt and pepper. Roast 40 minutes.

Drizzle the apples with honey, EVOO, salt and pepper; toss and set aside

Add kielbasa 10 minutes into cooking time.

Add apples to potatoes and onions in the last 20 minutes of cooking time.

To serve, arrange kielbasa, apples, onions and potatoes on dinner plates and garnish with the pan juices.

Autumn indeed - roasted potatoes with sausage just make me happy this time of year!

That is "Fall on a plate" It's hearty, satisfying and no doubt delicious.

This is just the kind of meal to serve up to family.

My daughter recently got back from Germany and has been asking me to make her a "German" meal. This would fit the bill perfectly! What a delicious sounding dish!

Potatoes and apples are a great combo! Made something similar with a pork loin and it was really good. Definitely screams fall!

I'm glad my spouse doesn't read your blog. He'd ask for this, but without the apples. Or squash.

Even we don't have the all 4 seasons here, I felt like I'm going through the whole seasons together. Yeap, I always love Donna's recipes. Yours look pretty well done too. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend.
blessings, Kristy

You mean you're NOT telling me to trip on my dinnerware?

I saw this on Donna's site and loved it. Great recipe remake!

Oh yes, I thought this sounded sooo good, too. Still do! I'd fall on a plate...or a bowl...or a cup...if I could only eat some of this ;)

What a lovely fall meal. This would be just delightful after a long, brisk walk outside. I love the addition of the apples to the potatoes and sausage...nothing like a little bit of sweetness! Thanks for sharing.
