This oven-roasted allspice apple and bratwurst recipe combines sweet and savory fall flavors and makes a delicious and comforting dinner. It couldn’t be easier to make; just add all ingredients into one cast iron pan and roast in the oven.
A few notes on some of the ingredients:
- Honeycrisp apple – don’t use any other apple variety for this recipe, you need the punch of acidity and sweetness that only Honeycrisp apples have
- ground allspice – the warm spice adds complexity and subtle fall flavors to the dish
- bread cubes – use a high-quality sourdough loaf
How to make it:
Step 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Quarter, core and slice 1 Honeycrisp apple into wedges, then toss with 4 bratwurst links, 1/4 teaspoon allspice and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl.
Step 2. Transfer the mix to a cast iron pan and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
Step 3. Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups bread cubes and 12 roughly chopped sage leaves to the pan. Stir everything well and then return the pan to the oven and continue to roast until the meat is cooked through (another 15 to 20 minutes).
Step 4. Cut the bratwurst into bite-sized pieces and serve.
