I have to say, a lot of my one-pan meals are inspired by a complete lack of time. This delicious one pan meal is perfect for a crazy and hectic weeknight, makes a ton of food, and is absolutely delicious. The apples and potatoes come together in a sweet blend with the rosemary, and the sausage gives a homey feeling for these colder winter nights. Nothing is better for your Whole30 or paleo menu than eating cozy food that takes little time to prepare, am I right?
This recipe is so simple that it doesn’t need much of an introduction. If you haven’t already seen why I love rosemary, you should check out my lengthier post about the health benefits of rosemary. It’s a highly versatile herb that brings lots of flavor to anything and everything you put it in, and is one of my personal favorites for adding flavor to a meal. For this blog post, I’ve decided to keep it short and get right to it!
How to make One Pan Sausage, Rosemary Potatoes, and Apples
There are a few ingredients that are not specifically mentioned in the name, but overall, you will need:
- sausages or brats (be sure to find Whole30 and/or paleo compliant sausage)
- olive oil
- apples (I prefer fuji, but any type of apple will do)
- red potatoes
- fresh rosemary
- fresh thyme
There are lots of Whole30 friendly sausage or brats in the grocery stores, and as long as they are Whole30 compliant, go for it! I personally love Applegate Organics Sausages, specifically the chicken and apple sausage. There are plenty of other brands out there that are just as tasty, but I’ve found Applegate to be a widely distributed brand that I can find in almost any grocery store.
First, preheat your oven to 350° F. Chop your sausage, onion, apples, and red potatoes. Lay them on a baking sheet. Then, remove some of the rosemary and thyme leaves and sprinkle them over top. Add some olive oil, salt, and pepper to the tray, and stir it all together so that everything is evenly coated.
Place the tray in the oven for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 45 minutes, turn your oven on to broil and broil the pan for about 5-10 minutes, or until your potatoes are as crispy as you want them.
This is also a great meal to make in the Air Fryer! Simply put all the ingredients in the air fryer basket, and cook on 390°F for about 25 minutes. I personally love to make this recipe in the oven and then reheat it using the Air Fryer, but any and all methods are an option.
Enjoy this recipe as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner meal. It makes quite a bit and heats up easily for left overs all week long!
