Roasted Veggies and Sausage

A few weeks ago I was checking out at the grocery store. I was buying smoked sausage, red potatoes, and cabbage. There were a few other things too, but there was something about seeing those things on the belt that made me think I really needed to throw something together with them.  I went looking for inspiration, and this recipe from real life Dinner was pretty much exactly what I had in mind.  Except I changed the vegetables a bit.  That, of course, is the beauty of a recipe like this - you can use the vegetables you have on hand or the vegetables that are telling you they really want to be thrown together into something yummy.  I think any number of combinations would work.

Roasted Veggies and Sausage
adapted from real life Dinner

  • 1 large onion, cut into chunks
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3-4 large carrots, sliced
  • 4-5 medium red potatoes, diced
  • Coarsely sliced cabbage (I did not measure)
  • 3-4 T olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used 1 tsp. salt and freshly ground pepper)
  • 1 12-16 ounce package smoke sausage or kielbasa, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. Toss veggies with olive oil and salt & pepper in 13x9" pan.  Top with sliced sausage.
  3. Bake for about an hour, stirring every 20 minutes or so.

That's it.  Really simple and really tasty.  Just chop your veggies up, toss them together, bake, and enjoy!

The secret is to cut all the veggies into similar sized pieces so they will cook evenly.  Next time I think I am going to cut my carrots and potatoes just a bit smaller.  Also, the size of your veggies, and how well roasted you like them, will determine how long you'll need to bake this.

This heats up really well, and the leftovers might be even better than the first time.  we had some green beans with it the first night, and I just threw them into the pan and roasted them with the rest.  (see them in the back there?)  Just really so good.
