I wanted to show Shorey how to make a great one-dish meal for dinner, so I chose this one featuring sausage, potatoes, onions, and mushrooms en papillote. Papillote refers to a wrapping of foil or parchment paper in which meat or fish is cooked. This is a great dish to make for a party, as it can be assembled ahead, even the day before, and then placed in the oven an hour before serving. We use nonstick aluminum foil instead of parchment paper, and Shorey put all the ingredients in the foil well in advance.
