Sweet Sausages Braised In Onion with Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

What a surprise, another recipe from Rachael Ray, I swear I am not getting any kick back for recommending her recipes so much.


This is actually a main dish and a side, I cut the recipe in half so I wouldn't have a ton of leftovers.

So lets gather up some ingredients and get some things started.

Ingredients for Sweet Sausages Braised In Onion with Horseradish Smashed Potatoes
You will need some sausages, chicken broth, vinegar, garlic, horseradish, potatoes, onions, butter, honey, herbs, milk and some kind of cream. I chopped the onions the night before so I would have less to do after work.

potatoes chopped
The first thing you want to do is chop up the potatoes.

garlic chopped
Chop up the garlic.

broth measured
Measure your chicken stock and we are ready to cook!

potatoes in
Get the potatoes in a pot with some water and throw a lid on it.

sausages in
Get the sausages in a pan with some oil.

brown the sausages
Brown them all around and then get them out of the pan. That cute plate is a Corelle plate, I have started to collect them. I have a Pyrex/Corning problem :)

stir in the onion and garlic
Add in the onion, garlic and whatever herbs you like. Season with salt and pepper and let these guys go for about five minutes.

Check your potatoes! Get the lid off if the water is boiling and add in some salt.

add liquids
When the onions are brown, add in the vinegar, stock and honey. Bring this to a boil and scrape up any bits off the bottom of the pan.

back in the pan!
Get the sausages back in and let this simmer away for about 10 minutes.

horseradish and butter in
While those braise away get the potatoes drained and back into the pan. Toss in your butter, horseradish, milk and cream and smash it all around.

potatoes smashed and stirred

sausages braising - 8 minutes
Looks like our sausages are ready to go too, lets eat!

This may not be the most beautiful thing I have ever made, but it was delicious. The real stars for me were the onions and the potatoes. I will definitely make this again.
