This is a quick easy meal that you can put into the oven and then leave the kitchen to check email, pay bills, update your web site or just relax. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9″ x 13″ place;1lb of Dragonfly Garden Farm frozen Farmer’s Sausage – Plain or Garlic 4 or 5 pealed white, red or sweet potatoes – I like a mixture ¼ cup of water and a quick drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil Salt & Pepper to taste (I use fresh ground, I swear it tastes better!) Add a sprinkle of Chipotle & Paprika if you want to spice it up a little!
There is lots of room in the pan if you want to add another pound of sausage and spuds for more than 4 people. Add another 30 minutes of cooking time for another package of sausage.
Pop it in the hot oven, go finish what you were doing for a half hour. Take the pan out of the oven, poke a fork many times into the sausages, this lets all the yummy drippings out so they wander over to see the potatoes. Turn everything over, and put it back into the oven. This is when I make a salad or put some frozen veggies on to cook.
Continue to bake the sausage for another 30 minutes until it is cooked through, cut it open there should be no pink, and check to be sure the potatoes are not “woody”. Where I come from, if the potatoes are not cooked all the way through, we say, “the potatoes are woody”!
I cook mine for a little longer, because I like the sausage and potatoes to be a little crispy.
Serve with the cooked veggie or salad or both and enjoy! A yummy quick supper for any day of the week!
Oh, cook extra and try a sausage sandwich for lunch the next day. Slice it about ½ inch thick, right out of the fridge and put it on fresh bread, with some butter and a little mustard, and enjoy! It tastes fantastic, one of my dad’s all-time favorites!
Take Care and care about what’s on your fork, we do!
