Recipe from Cooking Light

Linguica is a Portuguese sausage--you can substitute Spanish-style chorizo or kielbasa. Leave the root end intact on the onions so they don't fall apart as they cook.


  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 16 small red and yellow potatoes, halved lengthwise (about 18 ounces)
  • 8 small boiling onions, peeled (root end left intact)
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 ounces linguica sausage, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Hands On: 33 Minutes
Total: 1 Hour, 19 Minutes

  1. 1. Remove grill rack, and set aside. Prepare grill for indirect grilling, heating one side to medium-high and leaving one side with no heat. Place grill rack on grill.
  2. 2. Combine 3 cups water, Dijon mustard, and the next 5 ingredients (through bay leaves) in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Add potatoes and onions; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 12 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand for 10 minutes in cooking liquid; drain. Cut onions in half.
  3. 3. Pierce the bottom of a disposable aluminum foil pan several times with the tip of a knife. Place the potatoes and onions in pan, and coat with cooking spray. Place pan on grill rack over unheated side of grill; cover grill, and cook for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. 4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage, and sauté for 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine sausage, potato mixture, parsley, and salt in a large bowl; toss gently.
