Roasted Vegetables and Sausage

Difficulty:

Now that you have seen how to roast potatoes, why not make a whole roasted dinner?

You can follow the exact same recipe with just a few extras!

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Wash 5-7 small red potatoes. You don’t have to peel them. Cut the potatoes into about 1 inch chunks. Any roasting potato will do as long as you cut them into roughly the same size chunks.

After you chop each ingredient put them all into a large plastic bag as you go. This saves on having to wash a bowl!

This time, instead of garlic powder, why not try some fresh crushed garlic.

Remove the stem and seeds from 1 red pepper and cut it into bite size.

Peel 3 medium carrots and cut into one inch chunks.

Peel and cut 1 medium onion in half, then in quarters, then in 1/8’s.

Pour 4 tablespoons of olive oil over the whole thing and mix it all together inside the bag.

Don’t forget to add a sprinkle of salt, pepper and some dried rosemary.

Gently squish everything together in the bag.

Empty the bag out on to a baking sheet with sides.

Now for the sausage! Remove the casing from 1 pound of sausage and cut into 1 inch chunks.

I like to use many different types of sausages.

Turkey sausage, hot or sweet sausage, they all taste great in this recipe. Just choose your favorite.

Put the dinner in the preheated oven.

Bake it for 15 minutes.

Then with a spatula, give it all a stir

then stick it back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes or until everything is crispy and roasted.

By now your kitchen has a wonderful aroma permeating through it and all of your neighbors will be wishing they were invited to dinner!

Enjoy!

What dimensions should the baking sheet be so that everything cooks right?

Thanks!

Hi Liz,
The bigger the better! I used one that measured 15×17 (I think!). You do not want to over crowd or have a double layer of the sausage and vegetables.
Cheers,
Kathy
