Okay I totally missed Saint Patrick’s Day didn’t I? Oh well I’m not waiting until it comes around again to share this great recipe. One of my favorite meals is “Boiled Dinner” which was a smoke neck ham, cabbage, carrots and potatoes all thrown in a pot, covered in water and boiled until the cabbage and potatoes were cooked through. The meal is delicious because you fish out the different parts, smush it all together and enjoy – okay it may not be that great for people who don’t like their foods to touch but for me it was just great. Today it dawned on me that roasted vegetables are so much tastier than boiled and I decided to do a one pan meal (okay two pans) instead of a one pot meal! This meal is fantastic, easy to put together and even easier to cook. Your whole family will love it!
Roasted “Boiled” Dinner: Serves 4-6
1 Large Cabbage – Thickly Sliced
1lbs Carrots – Sliced
2 Onions – Sliced
1lbs Potatoes – Cubed
14oz Smoked Turkey Sausage
2TB Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Put the cabbage in a large bowl and toss with 1TB of the olive oil and a healthy pinch of salt and pepper – place over one greased cookie sheet. Place the carrots and onions in the bowl and add 1/2TB of olive oil and salt & pepper and place on half of another greased cookie sheet. Lastly mix the cut potatoes with the remaining 1/2TB of olive oil with some more salt & pepper and place on the other half of the sheet pan. Place both trays in a 425° oven for 45 minutes, tossing the vegetables every 15 minutes, add the sausage spread out all over the cabbage and place back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes until all the vegetables are cooked through and nice and caramelized. Remove from the oven, toss everything together, spoon into a bowl and enjoy!
