For a fast and tasty supper try this smoked sausage dish with roasted red potatoes and grilled sweet onions. This is an easy go to meal when you’re in a hurry. Smoked Sausage is so good sliced and pan fried with a little dijon mustard on the side. But I thought maybe a little sweeter sauce might add to this skillet dish and looked to see what I had on hand. When I found the jar of fig preserves I knew I had something to work with. So I started with that and built around it with some dijon mustard, vinegar, soy sauce and a little honey.
I took about 10 small red potatoes, drizzled olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. I placed them in on an aluminum lined baking sheet and into the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until fork tender.
I used the same bowl that held the potatoes and added more olive oil, salt and freshly cracked pepper.
Brush the olive oil mixture over 4 slices of sweet onion.
I have a grill pan that I used to grill the onions. If you don’t have a grill pan a non-stick skillet will do. Place the slices olive oil side down and then add olive oil to the top side. Turn to cook the other side after a few minutes.
While the potatoes and onions are cooking I’m going to get the smoked sausage out and slice into bite size pieces.
Drizzle olive oil in a large non-stick skillet and add the sausage pieces. They will begin to brown in a few minutes. Stir often.
The sauce is made of fig preserves, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, soy sauce and honey.
In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup fig preserves, 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, 2 teaspoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon honey. Whisk it together and set aside.
The potatoes and onions are ready. I cut the potatoes into quarters and chopped the onions into smaller pieces. Add them back into the skillet with the smoked sausage.
Toss the potatoes, onions and smoked sausage along with the fig dijon sauce.
