Why We Love This Recipe for Roasted Potatoes with Apples, Sausage and Maple Mustard Glaze

Hello, fall! And just like that summer is over and we’re all doing our annual run-around-like chickens dance. This is the time when we’re all still trying to let go of those long lazy days and get back into a routine while maintaining healthful weeknight dinners!

Well, I do have to give myself a pat on the back for this Roasted Potatoes with Apple, Sausage and Maple Mustard Glaze recipe, because it has definitely come in handy for those days when we’re trying to get back on track. It is quick, simple, easy to clean up, and seriously yummy! 

It is inspired by the red and gold thin-skinned potatoes and storing apples we’ve been getting from our local CSA share. To those fresh ingredients, I add chicken sausage and a speedy (and super mouthwatering) maple mustard glaze.

It’s sweet and savory, and most importantly it doesn’t require much attention from us cooks. Major bonus!

Key Ingredients for This Recipe

Potatoes

This recipe calls for small thin-skinned potatoes, such as red, blue, or gold. Cut them into 1-inch chunks so they’re all roughly the same size and cook evenly.

Chicken Sausage

Use four links of fully-cooked chicken sausage for this recipe – whichever kind is your preference. When sliced it should come to about 12 ounces.

Apples

The apples bring a delicious sweetness to the dish that screams fall! I suggest using golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks.

Maple Mustard Glaze

Additional Ingredients

  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Step By Step Instructions for This One Pan Dinner

Step 1: Preheat

Preheat your oven to 450°F.

Step 2: Roast Potatoes and Prep Additional Ingredients

Toss the potatoes, oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until they’re coated. Spread them out on a large heavy roasting pan, and roast them for 10 minutes. While the potatoes roast, stir the sausage, apples, mustard, maple syrup, and vinegar together in a bowl.

Step 3: Combine Both Mixtures

Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and remove the roasting pan from the oven. Scrap the potatoes up from the pan with a spatula. Add the sausage, apples, and the mustard mixture to the potatoes and toss them to combine. Return the combined mixture to the oven and bake, stirring once or twice until the potatoes and apples are tender and the glaze has caramelized. This should take about 45 to 50 minutes.

FAQs and Expert Tips

Can you put apples with potatoes?

Funnily enough, you never want to store apples and potatoes together because they’ll go bad faster. But for this recipe, they are the perfect pair and complement each other deliciously!

Should I boil the potatoes before roasting?

There’s no need to boil the potatoes before roasting because they’re such thin-skinned potatoes that they’ll crisp up all on their own in the oven. If you were to use a different variation of potato you may want to boil them first.

What else is maple mustard good for?

Maple mustard is actually a great vegan version of honey mustard! Instead of using honey for sweetness, you swap in maple syrup! It’s as simple as that.
