I have a recipe to share today that is easy to put together, just a bit of chopping in the preparation, and can be left to cook itself whilst you relax with a glass of something refreshing. Posted by 1st Man on the Two Men and a Little Farm blog, it looked tasty and worth trying, and a supper dish that could make a very nice change from all those turkey dinners! The amount of ingredients 1st Man has listed is enough to serve four people - very hungry people, I'd say ... so I have adjusted the amounts to serve two.
Ingredients for my version - check out the Two Men's blog if you are feeding more than two.
- 8oz sausage (your favourite), chopped - I used bratwurst
- 1lb 8oz potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
- 4 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 1 yellow pepper, chopped - original recipe calls for a green pepper but I didn't have one in the fridge
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 TBSP chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- In a large oven-proof dish or roasting tin, combine the sausage, potatoes, thyme and olive oil until well coated.
- Add peppers, onions, parsley, salt and pepper and stir through again to ensure everything is well coated with the oil.
- Place in oven, at 450 degrees, and roast, uncovered, for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are baked through and there's a nice golden colour on both the potatoes and sausage.
Remove from the oven and serve.
Delicious! Two Men suggest corn bread as an accompaniment ... crusty farmhouse bread would be equally good. This made a very substantial supper despite reducing the ingredients, in fact, we had quite a bit leftover ... and that was after the EM went back for seconds :))
We have a busy weekend ahead. We'll be out visiting lots of family, exchanging cards and presents, and no doubt drinking many cups of tea and eating more mince pies than is good for us.
We'll be catching up with Arihanna who will be one year old on Christmas Eve. Apparently she is walking by hanging on to the furniture now and starting to get into a lot of mischief. Her granny, my sister Margaret, had to be taken to hospital this week after she fell and gashed her arm on her wheelchair ... Arihanna had removed a rubber cap from the brake and unfortunately that's what Margaret fell down on to ... the gash took eight stitches.
I wonder what your weekend is going to be like ... are you going to be doing similar and visiting everyone, or will your family and friends be popping in to visit you. Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Take care and enjoy yourself whatever you are doing.
