Sunday Night’s All Right For Roasting

RECIPE: Roasted Sausage and Potatoes

I know I’ve talked about how much I love Pinterest, and you’ll be happy to know my love for that wonderful time waster hasn’t wavered in the past months.  Sometimes I’ll find recipes on there that I have to make immediately because they look that good.  This is one of those recipes.

I generally make my WandaS meals on Sunday, because it’s my stay at home and relax day.  This past Sunday was the Emmys, and it’s general tradition in my house to eat unhealthy food and drink fancy drinks while watching award shows.  I love awards shows, as I someday want to wear a fancy red ballgown and win awards for my spectacular writing.  Instead I’m here grading essays, none of which are going to win an Emmy for best writing.

I changed a few things about the original recipe.  I only used one bell pepper, because one of the two I bought was all moldy on the inside.  Ew.  I used both Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning, which my mom put on a lot of foods when I was a kid and I always have a can of in the pantry, and TexJoy Salt-Free Herb Seasoning, which I use in soups and on meat all the time.  The Tony Chachere’s adds spice, while the TexJoy adds flavor to compliment the roasted potatoes.  I also cooked everything for an hour, stirring every 20 minutes to make sure it was all equally roasted.

I think next time I would use less oil because the sausage cooked down and made its own oil.  Also, good tip: don’t add any salt!  I decided not to, knowing that the sausage was going to be salty enough, and I was right.  Also, there needs to be more vegetables.  Next time, sorry JT, I would add whole or halved Brussels sprouts, because sprouts + roasted + pork products = deliciousness.

I had leftovers for dinner on Monday, and I steamed a boatload of broccoli to balance out the potatoes/sausage factor.  Yes, I was still grading essays then.

Rating: I’ll give this a hearty 4 out of 5 bottles of Summer Shandy, which I enjoyed with my dinner.  I want to eat this all week long, but it needs more vegetables.
