Roasted Apples, Squash, and Sausage

Roasted Apples, Squash, and Sausage

What do you do when you have lots of apples sitting on the counter? You can’t eat them all and so you bake, roast and throw them into stews. Of course you can also make apple sauce but my boys are past that age and they consider apple sauce baby food. They don’t mind apples in savory dishes and so I mix them into their favorite food….MEAT!

I concocted this Roasted Apples, Squash, and Sausage dish last year but never posted. I like squashes and so I added some in place of potatoes. It is kind of a sweet and savory dish. It is fast and easy to prepare and we enjoy it. Hope you will too. :)

    I wish I had a whole bunch of apples sitting around. That is one thing that I miss about the midwest! The cider too!

    This looks like a wonderful fall hearvest dish. I’ll bet this would be good in a bento lunch too!

      I did put some in the boys’ and hubby’s bento. Did not have time to take a picture as it is such a rush in the morning.

    Looks so delicious! Now I know what can I do with all the apples that my mom will always give us after offerings every month! I’m also looking for butternut squash recipe for the one I bought last week. 😉

    I will always have extra apples for this terrific dish. It is a complete meal in itself. Protein, vitamins, carbs, extra minerals. Thanks for sharing an easy to prepare dish.

    Hi Biren! What a hearty dish! Yes, I have a lot of apples on counter because kids say they want to eat and they stopped eating after a couple of them (duh!!!). I’ve never prepared apples and sausage together but that sounds like a good idea!

    There are times where we have too many apples and this is such a great idea on using them up. I agree with Nami, it is a hearty dish. I love that you put maple syrup to give it a sweeter flavor. Have a great weekend, Biren!

    I’m into quick meals lately. I was doing so much cooking that I got a bit burned out. I like the simple ingredients you’ve used. It just goes to show that a few flavorful ingredients can have a big impact!
