Sausage, Potato, Brussel Sprout Bake (or Grill)

The Menu:
Sausage, Potato, Brussel Sprout Bake (or Grill)

The Original Recipe:
I wanted to quickly throw something together for supper, tonight. I used the ingredients I had on hand, and this turned out so delicious I wanted to share it with everyone! It's not any recipe that I have read or found on the internet. It's something of my very own! It tasted so good. The tang of the mustard and vinegar goes nicely with the brussel sprouts. Sage goes great with pork. Overall, I think this is a true keeper and something I will make again! Not bad for my 500th post!

Sausage, Potato, Brussel Sprout Bake (or Grill)

1 pkg. Smoked Sausage, sliced
5 Red Potatoes, diced
1 onion, chopped
1 pkg fresh brussel sprouts or 1 pkg. thawed out (previously frozen) brussel sprouts, cut in half
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. olive oil
fresh sage, chopped (to taste-about 6 big leaves)
salt/pepper to taste

Whisk mustard, garlic, vinegar, oil, sage, salt and pepper in a bowl. In another bowl add sausage, onion, sprouts and potatoes. Then mix all ingredients together. Lay out on cookie sheet covered with foil. Bake 400 degrees until potatoes are soft and start to brown, about 25-30 minutes. Stir and broil on high about 5 minutes to crisp up a bit more. OR you can layer your grill with foil. Turn on medium high heat. Spread out mixture on grill, close lid and grill until potatoes are browned. Probably about the same time as the oven. I would peek every 10 minutes and give a gentle stir. It's done when the potatoes are soft and browned.
