Sausage With Peppers, Onions & Potatoes<BR>Easy Sheet Pan Style

Sausage With Peppers, Onions & Potatoes
Easy Sheet Pan Style

This is a great meal when you don’t want to spend too much time cooking/cleaning up. Just cut up your vegetables, grab a package of sausage from the freezer and throw it in a hot oven! 40 minutes later dinner is served..

  • 1 pack frozen italian chicken sausages (Blinsky’s are good) – yes, straight from the freezer
  • 1 medium red onion
  • any combination of green, red, yellow bell peppers
  • 2-3 medium sized red potatoes or yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400F.

Grease a large household sized sheet pan (same as a half pan if using a commercial size) with a couple tablespoons of the avocado oil.

Cut onion into thin slices and peppers into thick strips, place on one end of the sheet pan, drizzle liberally with oil, add thyme, salt & pepper to taste, toss together with your fingers and arrange over 2/3 of pan.

Cut potatoes into 1 inch pieces, drizzle with oil, toss together with salt & pepper and arrange on the remaining portion of the pan.

Place frozen sausages atop the peppers. If they are made without casings, like the Blinsky’s for instance, drizzle them with a little oil. If they are made with casings, I leave them as is, and pop the whole thing in the oven.

Check it at about 30 minutes. Mine takes about 40 minutes and everything is perfectly done.

Serve with a simple green salad dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Easy!

Chicken, Apple & Pecan Salad

Chicken, Apple & Pecan Salad

Who doesn’t love some cold leftover chicken for lunch?

Here I sliced Balsamic & Herb Chicken Thighs (recipe coming in next post) and placed them over a bowl of mixed salad greens drizzled with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Ranch Dressing. Added sliced celery, gala apple, and organic raw pecans. It was so flipping good!

A delicious meal that took less than 2 minutes to put together. Knife skills, people. For years and years I would not buy bottled dressings because I was not into their ingredient lists. Wow is it handy to have some bottled dressing in the fridge! Nice work, Primal Kitchen!
