I hope your holidays were happy! Our holiday time was nice… Mom and sister visiting and spending time with the in-laws too. Too much food prepared and eaten, for sure!! The craziness of the holidays (for the most part) is over… those busy days of baking and cooking for a house full of relatives are just about to come to an end. For many of you though, those relatives are still lingering, right? Here’s a very simple one-dish, delicious dinner to make for one of those “Oh my gosh, I have to feed all of these people and I don’t feel like cooking!” nights: Sausage and Potato Bake
Here are all of the ingredients you need for the recipe (I used fresh herbs, but you can most certainly use dried). I do like to use Hillshire Farm smoked sausages in recipes because they’re so easy to toss it into soups, casseroles, and eggs. And they’re totally kid- friendly too. Oh, and another bonus… this product doesn’t contain any gluten- so when my gluten-free Mom is visiting then she can eat what we’re eating!
For the recipe- the sausage is sliced, and the potatoes are cut into chunks.
The potatoes are boiled for a short time then drained.
Peppers are chopped, onions are sliced and garlic is pressed. As I mentioned before, I used fresh herbs since I had them growing in my backyard, but you can most certainly used dried instead (see the recipe below for specifics on measurements).
I whisked the seasonings separately to make sure they were well- combined before adding to the rest (olive oil, garlic, herbs, broth, pepper).
If you don’t want to wash another bowl, you can choose to toss the seasonings in the baking pan with the veggies/sausage. I quickly tossed them in a bowl instead…
… then transferred everything to my festive baking dish. That’s it! Easy meal, completely prepared and ready for the oven.
30 to 45 minutes in the oven and your Sausage and Potato Bake is totally done- potatoes delightfully crispy on the edges, and peppers and smoked sausage perfectly roasted. We enjoyed the warm comfort of this dish at the end of a busy, rainy day of holiday shopping. Loved the simplicity of the recipe and ease of clean- up too. We served it with a big, green salad, and everyone in the family was pleasantly stuffed and happy
