One Pan Italian Sausage Fennel & Potatoes Dinner

This recipe idea for cooking Italian sausage, fennel & potatoes together in one dish came to me in the grocery store as I was wandering around in the produce department looking for inspiration. Since I’d wanted to make something with fennel bulbs since last winter (but hadn’t), this time when I spotted fennel bulbs on a recent trip to Trader Joe’s, I immediately put them into my cart. From that point, the rest of the recipe idea followed rather effortlessly.

I don’t know about you but I don’t cook with fennel as much as I should, and I’m not sure why it’s not more of a staple in our fridge, and on my grocery list. Because every time I do have it, I’m reminded just home much I love the light, licorice taste that mellows into a sweet, mild, almost buttery anise flavor after cooking. There really is nothing quite like it, and it’s the perfect accompaniment to the potatoes and Italian sausage in this dish!

The list of ingredients you’ll need to make this One-Pan Italian Sausage, Fennel and Potato Dinner is short and sweet. You’ll need One package of Italian sausage (5 or 6 per package), two fresh fennel bulbs, two sweet onions (such as Vidalia), two pounds of petite red potatoes, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, milk, fennel seed, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. That’s it!

As you can see from the photos and video, I used a disposable aluminum tray to cook this dinner so clean-up would be a breeze, and because I knew I was going to cook this outside on the grill. However, if you’re planning on cooking this inside the house in the oven, you may want to use a more attractive casserole dish (or not) depending on the amount of clean-up you want to do after dinner.
