Sausage roast pan dinner with roasted sausage, peppers, onions and potatoes make a quick and easy dinner for any weeknight.
Sausage Roast Pan Dinner
Since we’ve moved to the Netherlands, I have been craving Louisiana food. This sausage roast pan dinner is my fast and easy Cajun dinner when I’m craving a bit of Louisiana flavor. If you have not tried roast pan dinners, you are in luck. The concept is so simple. You chop up whatever veggies and meat is in your fridge, throw everything on a pan and roast it in the oven. Roast pan dinners are my new favorite quick dinner.
My little one came running in one afternoon, “Mama, Mama, I help cook.” I don’t turn down help so I got him washed up and he grabbed a stool. He loves to help and although he is only two, he wants to chop everything (with Mama’s help of course). To make the sausage roast pan dinner, we chopped up the bell peppers, onions, potatoes and sausage. We added some seasoning and olive oil and then let the oven do the work.
I somehow managed to find some Jiffy cornbread in the expat shop online. So, we cooked up some cornbread and added sliced cheese. You just pour half of the cornbread mixture into a pan, add a layer of sliced cheese and then add the rest of the cornbread mixture to the pan. Don’t judge it until you try it. One of my husband’s coworkers showed him how to make cheesy cornbread and that is our favorite way to eat it now.
My husband walked in and said, “Hmm…What is that smell?” I said, “It’s Louisiana.” I realize that this sausage roast pan dinner isn’t a traditional Louisiana dish, but something about the caramelized sausage and peppers reminds me of the beginning of a good Louisiana jambalaya.
