One Pan Sausage & Potatoes

Standard

This was so easy and delicious.

Ingredients:

12 Italian sausages, cut in half

2 large onions, sliced

2 red peppers, seeded and cut into large dice

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 lb. baby new potatoes, quartered

7 oz. white wine

2 T. olive oil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to convection roast at 400. Place all the ingredients (except for the wine) in a large roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and some Italian seasonings. With your hand, mix it all up so that everything is coated with the oil and spices.

Spread the ingredients out as flat as possible in the roasting pan. Put the sausages on the top, not covered by any vegetables.

Roast for about 35 minutes until golden. Temporarily remove the sausages and mix up all the vegetables and potatoes. Return the sausages to the pan, being sure to turn them to roast the other side.

Pour in the wine and cook for another 20 minutes until browned and the sausages and potatoes are tender.

Getting back on the health kick, I keep looking for recipes that offer lots of veggies (without spending too much time extra prepping them!).

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef, turkey, chicken, or bison

1 t. lemon zest

2 T. lemon juice

1/4 c. non fat greek yogurt

1 T. water

1 T. chopped fresh chives

Arugula

Sliced tomatoes

Sliced avocados

1/4 chopped red onion

2 minced garlic cloves

Directions:

Combine meat, red onions and garlic. Season with some salt and pepper. Form the meat into about 12-15 meat balls.

Cook them in a pan until done.

In the meantime, mix together the yogurt, water, chives and lemon zest in a small bowl. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together 3 T. olive oil, lemon juice, and some salt and pepper.

In a large salad bowl, place the arugula, tomatoes and avocados. Mix with the olive oil mixture. Top with the meatballs and drizzle the yogurt sauce on top.

Chicken Fajitas in a Pouch

Standard

This is a super easy way to cook up your meat and vegetables in one play!

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts, skinned and deboned

1 green pepper, sliced

1 red pepper, sliced

1/2 yellow onion, sliced

1 T. chili powder

1/2 t. cumin

1/2 t. paprika

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

Parchment paper

Corn tortillas

Shredded Mexican cheese

Guacamole

Pico de Gallo

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400. Place the peppers and onions in a bowl. Add some olive oil, salt and pepper and mix to coat everything well.

Place these on a sheet of parchment paper large enough to be able to seal it into a pouch.

Place the rest of the seasonings in a bowl. Mix well. Coat the chicken breasts with the seasonings on both sides. Place the chicken breasts on top of the peppers. Seal the pouch well and place it on a baking dish.

Cook in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the chicken reaches a temperature of 165.

Remove from the pouch. Slice the chicken breasts. Serve with tortillas and toppings.
