Sheet Pan Sausage & Peppers



Sheet Pan Sausage & Peppers. I adore sheet pan meals.
 
As you know I am doing a diet plan this week on trial, so my husband and I are not eating the same thing.  I have discovered how dangerous it is however, to look at even photos of tasty food when you are not eating regular food.  
 
Its tortuous!  But one does what one has to do! 



Sheet pan suppers.  I love sheet pan suppers.  Everything all on one or two baking sheets, baked at the same time in the oven. 

No fuss, no muss.  Deliciously simple.


Easy peasy and if you line the baking sheets with foil, no clean up either.  You can't lose! 

You know how lazy I can be when it comes to cooking. If it is easy to cook and easy to clean up after, I am all over it!



Myself, I adore roasted vegetables of any kind.  Roasting helps to enhance the natural sweetness of any vegetable.
 
I really love the caramelised edges and almost-stickiness to them that happens when you roast them. I am drooling here.



You could of course serve this in  crusty hoagie buns with some honey mustard or something similar, and that would be fabulous! 

Sausage in a bun, can't lose! A winner every time!


For my husband I opted to serve it with a baked jacket potato. Gently  broken open with a knob of butter tucked inside, and a sprinkling of cheddar gilding the top.
 
The potato all fluffy and light. That cheese, incredibly rich and delicious  . . . 



Just reading that made me hungry  . . .   my tummy is grumbling.  Why do diets have to be so difficult.

They only make you want to eat more!


For breakfast today I have had some of the Dietbon pancakes (low carb, no sugar and about 2 1/2 inches in diameter), a small banana and a smallish pot of sugar/fat free yogurt.  
 
I have to say I am no a fan of the flavour of artificial sweeteners . . .  I would rather have plain yogurt with real fruit, and maybe some muesli.



Oh the things I do for my art. I was quite hungry last night, but I think that was because I didn't have two dinners like I should have done.  
 
I am quite used to eating my main meal at noon, and then just having toast or cereal in the evening.  Old dog . . .  new tricks.



Today I think I will do the two mains . . .  so I am not quite so hungry come nightfall.
 
Or course having to cook normal for someone else complicates things a bit.  He cannot afford to lose weight. We are like Jack Sprat and his wife.  He is incredibly thin, no matter how much he eats. It just isn't fair!



Back to the sausage and peppers.  Clearly simple.  Clearly delicious.  No fuss, no muss.


Jacket potatoes are very easily done in the Microwave.  Just poke with a fork, wrap in paper towelling (or place in a cloth bag for just this purpose) and nuke for 5 to 6 minutes until it yields slightly when gently squeezed.

Yield: 4

Sheet Pan Sausage & Peppers

prep time: 15 minscook time: 25 minstotal time: 40 mins
Everything cooks on one pan and if you line the pan with a sheet of aluminium foil, its a really easy and simple clean up!  Delicious!

ingredients:


  • 1 pound of smoked sausage, sliced on the diagonal
    into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 medium red peppers, trimmed and sliced
  • 2 medium yellow peppers, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 TBS light olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
    (Bear in mind the sausage is salty)

instructions:


  1. Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6.  Line several baking trays
    (with sides) with aluminium foil.  Place the sliced sausage and
    vegetables in a bowl.  Toss with the oil and seasoning.  Divide between
    the baking sheets, spreading out evenly.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes,
    until the sausage and vegetables are gilded on the edges.  Serve hot
    with your favourite sides.  We like baked potatoes.

While my husband was enjoying this, I was enjoying this . . .


Mexican Meatballs with Pasta Vegetables and a Tomato Sauce, along with an applesauce.  It was very tasty.  Tonight I am planning on enjoying a Whole Meal Salad with Chicken and Pesto.  Wish me luck! Bon Appetit!
