The same one-pan dinner I turn to on weeknights when I need to squeeze in a workout, can also be used for summer gatherings. While it bakes, you get a half hour or so of freedom from the kitchen to enjoy the festivities.
Simply toss potato wedges, roasted red peppers (sliced into strips) and chicken apple sausage (cut into slices) in an oven-safe casserole dish with olive oil and seasonings of your choice. Bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes; cover with foil towards the end if the potatoes aren’t tender enough.
Bonus: only one dish and cutting board to clean!
This week I tried out a couple of new techniques inspired by discoveries on Pinterest. For better or worse, here’s what happened….
Breakfast Bread Bowl
Here’s the original recipe, but my attempt (cooked in a full baguette with almond milk in place of cream) took 45+ minutes to cook the eggs thoroughly, and I adjusted the heat from 350 to 400 degrees midway through.
One Dish Potato & Sausage Bake
Inspired by pins that showed a casserole dish with a colorful collage of meat and veggies baked to glistening perfection in the oven, I decided to give it a whirl with potatoes, chicken apple sausage and green onions. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Delicious and easy for weeknights!
