When I went to visit my sister in Oklahoma, I was so excited I don’t think that I slept for a week in anticipation of going to see her.
It had been a few months, and talking on the phone isn’t the same as that face-to-face contact. In order to pass some of the time, we would spend hours on the telephone talking about what we were going to do while me and the family were there, including some of the recipes that she wanted to share with me.
My sister has always been an amazing cook. I’m not sure how she got so lucky, but she did. When she talked about this sausage bake that she had seen, I think I was even more excited about going. It sounded amazing, and I knew my husband would love it.
When the day finally came that we met in person again, after we stopped hugging and crying, we sat down and enjoyed this hearty meal. Between the four adults at the table, we cleared this pan right out. It was a good thing we had pizza on reserve for the kids, or they would have gone hungry!
Quick Tip: Use whatever kind of sausage you want!
Of course, we wouldn’t let our kids go hungry. That’s just a silly joke. My daughter actually asked if she could have some of this sausage bake off my plate. She has always loved meat and veggies, and that’s exactly what this was. She really enjoyed what I did give to her, so I was sure to get the recipe from sis so I could make it for everyone at home. It was one thing I could easily fit in my suitcase, even though I wished I could have stuck my sister in there instead!
After you share this with your friends, you’re going to be the one jotting down the instructions and how-tos!
- 1 pkg Johnsonville sausage links (i used mild Italian) OR Kielbasa cut into chunks
- 1 large green pepper, cut into strips
- 1 large red pepper, cut into strips
- 1 large yellow pepper, cut into strips
- 1 large white onion, cut into thin rings
- 3 lb red potatoes, cut into quarters obite-sizeze pieces
- 1 pkg 8 oz., sliced fresh mushrooms
- olive oil to lightly coat all
- Morton salt, pepper, onion salt and parsley
Easiest dish to make! Only have to cut all sausage links into bite-size pieces.
I put all of the sliced veggies into a large bowl, coat all lightly with olive oil and toss to coat. Add the sliced sausage pieces to this and spread out on two baking sheets.Bake at 400 degrees, tossing every 15 minutes or so for an hour. I made all the day before and only baked for 45 minutes, then the day needed I baked for the final 15 minutes to warm through.
