It's the Holidays and I know we are all too busy creating and shopping and celebrating to cook. But we still get hungry and fudge doesn't really make a meal.
One of our favorite easy dinners is a sausage roast. It's too easy to really be a recipe. It's always a crowd pleaser.
Preheat the oven to 425*.
Cut winter/root vegetables into large chunks. I use whatever is convenient: potatoes, squash, rutabaga, turnip, sweet potatoes, celeriac, parsnip… Add large chunks of an onion and a couple of apples. Toss all the veggies with your favorite oil: olive, coconut, tallow, lard, butter…. Add salt, pepper, and herbs/spices.
Ready for the oven – these are Deck Family Farm garlic lamb sausages for something extra special.
Lay the sausages across the bottom of a baking dish. Add the veggies on top. Cover with foil. Pop in the oven. After about 30 minutes remove the foil. Finish cooking – it's done when the veggies can be easily pierced with a fork.
It actually takes about an hour total to cookin is, but it is a full and complete meal with ten minutes of prep. And for me, that's good all year 'round. Especially during the craziness of the holidays. Add a side salad and it's a simple, tasty meal for the busiest night – maybe for Christmas Eve?
