Veggie Sausage Bake
Wait til you taste these hot sausages that have been doused in a delicious mixture of happiness and baked with a medley of fresh vegetables!
Now we’re huge fans of sausage. It’s just so flavorful and it has many applications in cooking. Here’re some of my favorite recipes!
Sausage and Veggies
If you don’t want to use hot sausages, then by all means, use sweet or Italian sausages. Just use nice robust sausages!
And, the vegetables, well, it’s up to you. I always love with a hearty sausage things like onions, potatoes and peppers!
One Pan Sausage and Veggies
One pan meals absolutely rock. And, you can prepare a lot of this in advance. Put it in the casserole baking dish. Then bake that day or the next day. Letting it refrigerate overnight only will make those flavors bloom even more!
Sausage Recipes Healthy
Healthy sausage recipes start with great sausage and fresh vegetables. If you can’t find fresh, then look for nice chunky frozen vegetables like carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peas and more.
Roasted Sausage and Vegetables
What makes this roasted sausage and vegetables even more vibrant is the sauce mixture you’re going to use!
A combination of maple syrup, coconut sugar, apple cider vinegar and spices including one that you might not really know a lot about. Sumac!
Sumac is a dried red spice that’s used traditionally in Middle Eastern cooking.
What makes it so intriguing is that it’s got this bright, lightly astringent, tart subtle flavor that just makes food pop!
Check my Amazon Storefront for sumac. It’s not expensive and it’s totally worth having in your spice cabinet. It can be sprinkled on everything from roasted vegetables to baked potatoes and more!
Nothing’s more hearty and filling than healthy sausage. And, fixing it with an array of your favorite vegetables is the easy ticket to a great meal.
Plus, clean up is so quick and easy!
