The recipe is actually an idea my son put together when he came home to visit a few weeks ago and I was so impressed with his cooking I told him this was a dish for The Kitchen Witch! It's exactly as he concocted it and I wouldn't change a thing.
Although these may sound like an unlikely combination of ingredients...
It turns out sausages and grapes - with some fresh thyme and garlic - are a natural combination!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Roast time: 40 minutes
Note: Recipe can easily be doubled to serve 6
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 6 fresh Bratwurst sausages
- 1 1/2 cups red seedless grapes
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 2 finely diced cloves garlic
- pinch of salt (optional)
- 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
- 6 fresh thyme sprigs
- Rub the olive oil onto bottom of shallow casserole dish.
- Place sausages onto the oil making sure they're well coated.
- Pour in the grapes (place them so they surround all the sausages everything touching the bottom).
- Sprinkle on the seasonings and garlic.
- Lay a sprig or two of thyme over each piece of sausage.
- Roast in a 400 oven for 30 minutes turning once at the half way point.
- Broil each side on high for an additional 3-5 minutes until each side is golden and crispy.
- Remove the sausages to a plate and gently mash the grapes making sure to scrape all of the flavour off the sides of the pan.
- Serve with the grape mixture over the sausages. The recipe is also very good served over jasmine rice (as per the video)
