So, you have a hankering for the sweet, savory flavors in Cantella’s Chicken Apple Sausage. But what should you have on the side? Whether you’re planning on serving your sausages sandwich-style or simply grilled, we’ve got the perfect accompaniment for your meal.

Here are our three favorite sides to pair with Cantella’s delicious Chicken Apple Sausage

  1. Cauliflower Mash

    Is there anything Cantella’s Cauliflower Mash doesn’t go well with? (Answer: Nope!) Made with organic cauliflower, our cauliflower mash is a delectable alternative to mashed potatoes. Smooth, rich, and totally indulgent-tasting, our creamy mashed cauliflower has only 5 net grams of carbs per serving! Chicken apple sausage paired with mashed cauliflower makes a great meal for both Keto and Paleo dieters. Best of all, it’s ready in minutes and it freezes beautifully!

  2. Onions and Brussels

    Once we take our perfectly-cooked sausages out of the pan, we often add in a bed of thinly-sliced onions to caramelize. The sausage drippings impart a lot of great flavor into the onions as they cook; just be sure to turn your heat down low if you use this method. Once your onions are nice and caramelized, toss in a pound or two of washed, halved brussels sprouts. Drizzle over some olive oil, sprinkle on some salt and pepper, then give the dish a good stir. Crank the heat back up to medium-high, cover, and stir only once every two or three minutes so the brussels get nice and charred. Once they’re cooked through, usually around 10-12 minutes later, serve alongside your fully-cooked links.

  3. Orange Salad

    The great thing about Papa Cantella’s version of Chicken Apple Sausage is that we make Chicken Sausage… with Apples. Our perfect ratio of fruit to meat complements the premium ground chicken rather than competing with it. Point-and-fact, more fruit actually makes an excellent side dish for our special blend. Orange Salad is our go-to: Oranges, anise, olive oil, and lemon juice are really all you need to create a stand-out side that won’t weigh you down. Sausage – any kind! – loves being paired with bright, clean flavors, and Orange Salad has them.
