This recipe is one of my go-tos when entertaining. It's simple, elegant and you can entertain your guests instead of spending the entire time in the kitchen. It is always a crowd pleaser and everyone always asks for the recipe. The whole pieces of garlic in this dish become so sweet, a lovely complement to the sweet grapes and spicy sausage. I serve this over rustic hand-mashed red potatoes. —Melissa Zienter, Las Vegas, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 8 uncooked Johnsonville® Mild Italian Sausage Links (4 ounces each), hot or mild
  • 2-1/2 pounds seedless green or red grapes, or a mixture
  • 20 to 30 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°. Place sausage links in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until no longer pink and some fat has been rendered, 20-25 minutes. Drain. When cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2-in. slices.
Meanwhile, remove grape stems; place grapes and garlic in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Add 6 tablespoons butter; toss to coat. Top with sausage slices. Bake until sausage is browned, 15-20 minutes, stirring once.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage mixture to a serving dish. Keep warm. Transfer cooking juices to a small saucepan; add balsamic vinegar. Bring to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, 4-5 minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in remaining butter; cook until slightly thickened. Drizzle over sausage and grapes. Yield: 8 servings.
