Servings: 4 servings
- 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1 small butternut squash, diced
- 2 cups brussels sprouts, sliced in half
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 medium-sized yellow onion, diced
- 3 celery stalks, finely chopped
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 1 apple, sliced and diced into small pieces
- 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage (I would not recommend dried here - you need the fresh stuff!)
- 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary (or 2 tsp dried)
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 lb Ground chicken or turkey
- 1 tbsp fennel seeds
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 F. In a large bowl, mix together ingredients for turkey sausage.
Add butternut squash and brussels sprouts to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper then drizzle on a bit of olive oil and season with some salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a very large skillet over med-high heat. Add turkey sausage (you can also use store bought and remove casings), then break up with a slotted spoon, cooking until just browned, about 5-7 minutes.
Remove turkey from skillet and add in onions, celery, red pepper and apple, then drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Saute for about 7-8 minutes until veggies soften.
Add turkey sausage back to skillet with other veggies - right around this time squash should be coming out of the oven. Add that to the skillet along with rosemary and sage and saute another 2-3 minutes, stirring everything very well.
Serve immediately or divide into meal prep bowls. Leftovers will last in fridge up to 5 days.
