Easiest-Ever Sausage and Potato Pan Roast

Who really wants to cook up a storm this week?  This is a week when we’d prefer to take a breather before heading into the weekend’s New Year’s celebration. Sign up for this particular recipe and you’ll be rewarded—not just with time saved—but with a particularly flavorful weeknight dinner with virtually no prep time and all of 30 to 40 minutes in the oven.  It’s also adaptable.  I have made the dish with both sweet and hot Italian sausage. I’ve also experimented with the greens that go with it.  It’s equally good whether you like pepper-y arugula or tender baby spinach.  And I had reasons for this experimentation.

When our 8 year old grandson visited at Thanksgiving, at one particular meal, he confessed a love for sausage.  Knowing his father and mother share cooking detail, when I saw Justin Chapple’s recipe in Food and Wine Magazine, I jumped at making it child-friendly and something they could easily do with minimal effort.  I’m not sure if Mason is ready for the spicier hot sausage version but adult tastes may find that their favorite.  For similar reasons, the arugula may be very adult whereas the spinach is not just child-friendlier but a great way to get kids to eat spinach. Here is the recipe as I adapted it.

  • Monte, I made this last night and it was terrific–just as you said, quick, easy, delicious! Will for sure be adding this to my repertoire. Perfect meal for a busy weeknight. My only change was subbing a garlicky Caesar dressing left over from Xmas for the lemon juice on the greens. Thanks, once again, for another wonderful recipe!

  • Just like Mary Glick says, this one is a keeper! Thanks so much Mary for taking the time to write! Means the world to me when you like something you find here. Happy New Year to all and to all a good night.
