I post quite a few recipes on this blog. Not because I am a gourmet cook by any means but more to show you simple everyday food prepared by what is coming out of my garden or pantry at that time and how to prepare it. Right now I have lots of new potatoes, onions, broccoli, squash and cucumbers. I take some of my new potatoes and put them in jars to enjoy through the winter. And there is nothing like a pot of fresh green beans and new potatoes or creamed peas, onions and new potatoes. But the other day we ate over at my oldest daughter Fred's house and she served roasted new potatoes, onions, pepper and sausage. All roasted in the oven. It was delicious so I decided to try it myself.
First I cooked a couple pieces of sausage until pretty well done and let it cool and then cut it into bite size pieces.
Then cut up about a dozen new potatoes into about 1 inch cubes. Peeling and all.
Then I also cut up a bell pepper and onion into about the same size pieces as my potatoes.
Now take boiling water and cover the potatoes only and let sit for about 20 minutes. It starts to cook the potatoes.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Then take the potatoes after 20 minutes and drain them and dry them well with a clean kitchen towel.
Now put the potatoes alone back in the dry bowl and add about 2 tablespoons olive oil and toss to coat well.
Then I placed these potatoes on parchment paper in the hot oven and baked for about 25 minutes. Then take the trays out and flip the potatoes to the other side and bake for another 20 minutes. Now I had one tray on the top shelf and one on the bottom and then rotated them about half way through.
After the potatoes start to show some color then I added the onions and peppers also tossed in olive oil and let them cook for about another 20 minutes. Then add your sliced sausage and mix them all up good to get the sausage flavor on the other vegetables and return the mixture to the oven to finish off. Remember the sausage is already cooked so basically you are just warming it through. Basically you want the potatoes cooked through with just a little browning and the onions and peppers roasted soft with maybe a little color.Once out of the oven I tossed with a little sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper and a dusting of Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning.
Served with a salad this is a great meat and potatoes meal for my husband and the hardest part is probably all the chopping.
Just another idea for those new potatoes.
