Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 pound chicken sausages
  • 7 fresh sage leaves
  • 3 cups apple cider
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 small butternut squash (1 pound), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large russet potato (10 ounces), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup 2 percent Greek yogurt

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large skillet or shallow heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and sausages and cook until sausages are deep golden brown, 6 minutes, turning sausages and stirring onion halfway through. Add sage and cider and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a rapid simmer and cook until cider is syrupy and coats the back of a spoon, about 30 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine squash, potato, and apple. Cover by 2 inches water and bring to a rapid simmer over medium-high. Cook until squash and potato are tender when pierced with a knife, 15 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Drain vegetables and apple and transfer to a food processor. Process until smooth. Add yogurt, season with salt and pepper, and pulse to combine. Divide butternut mash among four plates and serve with sausages and onion.

    I love this recipe.
    Have made this many times for my family & guests. Tip- don't double.
    I use quality chicken, bratwurst style sausages. I have also used pork in a pinch. Make sure you simmer & not boil the cider mixture- take your time. The cider glaze & butternut mash are SO good together!!

    I love to cook and I love Martha Stewart, but, I have to be honest...this recipe was horrible. So much so that I am submitting a review, which I never take the time to do. I followed the recipe correctly. The sausages were "ok"...the butternut mash was terrible. I would never make this recipe again. Sorry!

    We enjoyed this, nice autumn meal. I was doubtful that the cider would thicken, but it did in about 35 min. Simmering the sausages like this made them very tender and flavorfu. I added a clove of garlic with the addition of the cider, and had to substitute dried thyme for the fresh sage. The butternut mash was very nice too.
