Sausage and Potatoes in the Oven

I'm pretty excited about tonight's yummy dinner. Mostly because I'm not in a cooking mood lately and this was easy. I do this on the stove top often, but this is the first time I've done it in the oven. Same amount of chopping, but instead of having to babysit the stove, the oven did the work.

Sausage & Potatoes in the Oven

1 sausage
1 bell pepper
1 big potato
2 carrots
1/2 yellow onion
2 slices of bacon
1 garlic clove
pinch of fennel
salt & pepper
1/2 cup beef stock
splash of balsamic vinegar
1/2 stick of butter

Chop your bell pepper, carrots and potato into bit size pieces. Same thing with the onion. Slice your sausage into 1/2 inch disks. Throw all of that into a nice baking dish (I love this stoneware from Pampered Chef!) Cut bacon into small pieces and place all around the top. Grate your garlic into the dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper and fennel. Add the beef broth and balsamic vinegar. Cube butter and dot it across the top. Cover and bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through. Uncover and bake at 400 for 15 minutes to get some carmelization.

You could also add cabbage to this dish, or other root vegetables that you have on hand.
