Lately, I have been looking for ways to make dinner time way less stressful. This is something I tried and it was awesome and the whole family liked it. It was simple to put together, clean up was minimal and best of all no stressing over dinner. I will be making it again.Sausage and Potatoes
adapted from about.com
1 pound smoked sausage, such as andouille or kielbasa, dice in to chunks.
1 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut in 1- to 2-inch chunks
3 to 4 carrots, cut in 1-inch pieces (I used baby carrots and didn't cut them.)
1 cup onions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 large clove garlic, crushed and finely minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 - 2 cups shredded cheese
*Optional 1/2 cup lemon lime soda
Combine the sausage pieces, potatoes, carrots and onions in a large food storage bag or a bowl. Toss with the pepper, salt, seasoning, garlic,olive oil and soda.
I then put mine in the fridge so that dinner was all but ready when I got home from work.
(The soda just helps the potatoes from browning and gives it a little extra flavor.)
When you are ready to cook:
Heat oven to 400°. Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour mixture into your dish.
Roast for 45 to 60 minutes, until vegetables are fork-tender, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes. If desired add cheese to the top and cook until it is melted.
* You can replace the seasoning salt with Cajun or Creole seasoning.
Made for a quick and delicious dinner!
