This recipe is one of Len's favorites! The caramelized grapes combine with the spicy seasoning of Uncle Charley's hot Italian sausage to make a spectacular dish.


  • 2 pounds seedless grapes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds Uncle Charley's hot Italian sausage grillers, uncooked
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat over to 475 degrees.
  2. Remove grapes from stems and toss grapes with olive oil in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and quickly brown sausages on all sides.
  4. Place sausages over grapes in baking dish. Sprinkle with thyme and drizzle with white wine.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping sausages halfway through. Remove sausages to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
  6. Pour grapes and drippings into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add balsamic vinegar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Pour grapes over sausages and serve immediately.


Serve with roasted or mashed potatoes, or over creamy polenta.
