Dinner is served!

Steve made one amazing dinner tonight. It was a recommendation I got from a friend at work...and tonight was the first night we tried it. We both loved it and want to pass it on to everyone else to try. It's a simple 4 ingredients, 1 pan recipe. And here it is...

First you brown Italian sausages (we got a package of 5) in a frying pan over medium heat. Don't break the sausage casings until they are almost completely cooked (about 15 minuets). Then cut the sausage into smaller pieces in the pan allowing the sausage to release all of its juices into the pan.

When the sausage is finished cooking all the way through, remove it from the pan and set aside. Next, cook 4 cups of green grapes (in the same pan) in the sausage drippings over medium-high heat until the grapes start to break up. (The grapes will get soft and also release juice into the pan)

Next, remove the pan from the heat and add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to the grapes and sausage drippings. Lastly, serve the sausage and grapes (including drippings) over mashed potatoes. We used instant potatoes to help keep this meal quick...but I imagine that real mashed potatoes would be even better.

And that's it! Simple, easy, and amazing!!!


  1. I never would have paired sausage and grapes together. The sweet-tart-spice combo sounds good to me.

  2. I am def. going to try this! Good work, Steve! (And Summer for posting the instructions!) Love you guys, Mim
