Brats with Roasted Cauliflower and Apples

For our wedding anniversary, Kiley and I spent a few restful days in Hermann, MO. It’s a quaint German town in eastern Missouri. We relaxed, we drank, we ate. It was perfect.

While there, we stocked up on some amazing smoked knackwurst. So good.

Because this week’s Food Matters Project recipe was Whole Cauliflower with Sausage, I decided to use our fresh knackwurst and roast up some cauliflower and local apples.  Apples and brats are great together. This is a great one pot or rather a one roasting pan meal.

Enjoy the fall flavors! Oh, and check out the original recipe at Food Fascination.

Brats with Roasted Cauliflower and Apples

Serves 4


  • 4 brats, polish sausage, or chicken sausage, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 apples, cored and cut into 8 pieces each
  • 1/2 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Add sausage slices to roasting pan. Toss cauliflower, apple slices, and onions with olive oil in medium bowl. Add to roasting pan.
  2. Roast sausages, cauliflower, apples, and onions for 30 to 35 minutes at 425F or until cauliflower is browned and sausages are cooked through.

  1. My boyfriend has been craving brats nonstop. We think it’s the weather. I have a huge bag of apples in the fridge right now and this sounds like the perfect use for some of them!
