Oven Roasted Potatoes and Sausages is a simple, sheet pan meal that you can make when you don’t feel like spending all day in the kitchen.
I wanted to share this delicious Oven Roasted Potatoes and Sausages with y’all. You see, I saw this on Pinterest once a couple of years ago. I’ve made it at least once before, but wanted to take the concept and make it something S and I would eat.
Ya see, he’s not a huge fan of vinegar and I think the original recipe called for balsamic? Yeah. No. He would have NOTHING to do with that. But I do love the concept of roasting the veggies and then adding some sausages in towards the end. It makes for a hearty, tasty, and simple meal. I don’t like it on weekdays because it takes a while for the potatoes to cook.
If it takes more than 45 minutes for a weeknight, we just don’t do it. We get home around 5-ish. By the time we walk the dog, do some dishes and prep for dinner, it’s somewhere between 5:30 and 6. If it takes an hour to cook? The puts us eating at 7, which we’ve done before, but it’s not pretty.
Then walk the dog again between 7 and 7:30 (THANK YOU SWEETIE PIE! He has walked her the last few nights due to the bitter cold.) then dessert at 8 and bed a 9. You see where I’m going with this one? If it takes too long to prepare, we’re eating too much too close to bed time.
I’m truly seeing the value in grazing for dinner and not the typical main meal of the day. I am trying to eat less for dinner, but sometimes I feel like I’m STAHVIN and the inner heffer who’s slowly escaping, will just snarf food. It’s not pleasant.
So, Oven Roasted Potatoes and Sausages is something we make for dinner on the weekends. It’s simple. It’s delicious. Depending on the sausage, it can be healthy. This time around it was Johnsonville Beer N’ Brats that were marked down from Walmart. I’m sorry. No. I can’t pass up marked down Johnsonville anything. They’re just too damned tasty!!
I intended to have them for lunch, but we went out for dinner Saturday, so that left for a little to no lunch because dinner would be a feast. And it was. Tasty ribs and slaw. Sweet potato fries! And red velvet cake. LOVE birthday dinners. Calories don’t count, right? On your birthday? *snort*
That meant that I had to incorporate them into Sunday supper and this just seemed like a logical choice. And since it was my birthday, I splurged for Klondike red fingerlings. They’re so yummy. And all you have to do, really is to halve them before you roast them, or leave them whole and they’ll take a little longer. Klondike potatoes are just creamy, tasty, delicious!! I am forever spoiled on potatoes, now.
And apparently my train of thought is all over the place! So, I think I’ll just leave you with the recipe. I hope you try it. It truly is delicious!! And very easy to customize to your tastes.
