Oven Roasted Smoked Sausage and Potatoes

 

I thought that it was high time the recipe got some fresh pictures. Updated on 8/19/15, I posted this dish on my Facebook page around a week back. I had no idea that this post would be viewed by more than 600,000 people and 20,000 shares and more than 100 comments! This post became so popular that it’s gained me 500 new followers within less than five days. For all of you users and Facebook page owners who are out there, it’s possible to gain new followers and followers without having to host a giveaway on your page!
Because this recipe was very popular and I was able to decide to give it a go. It’s a very simple and simple dish to prepare. It takes just 10 minutes to cut everything up , and an hour in the oven to cook. The first time I made this, I was using this extremely spicy sausage. I was thinking that it wasn’t that hot, but holy hell it was the hot sausage I’ve ever tasted. Ben didn’t like it too. I made a sausage that wasn’t too spicy in any way and it was an extremely quick and simple recipe to prepare. I’m planning to try this with eggs once. Serve with cheese and lovely greens like scallions, or parsley for garnish.

Ingredients:
1 package of smoked sausage, sliced into rounds
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
5 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into ½ inch cubes
olive oil
fine sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
sweet paprika
dried thyme
a handful of greated strong cheddar cheese

Directions:
The oven should be preheated to 400°F.
Place a large baking pan (with the sides) with many sheets of foil and spray it with cooking spray. Set aside.
Place the sausage along with the onions and potatoes in one large bowl. Sprinkle with a few TBS of olive oil, and then season according to your taste with salt, pepper, paprika, and dried thyme. Combine with your hands until the ingredients are evenly dispersed. Pour the mixture on the baking tray and disperse it as widely as possible.
Place the potatoes in the oven and cook for 45 to 60 minutes and stirring once at intervals of 15 minutes, or as long until the potatoes are golden brown and soft. Switch off the oven.
Sprinkle the cheese over the meat and potatoes that have been cooked, Pop back into the oven for a couple of moments to let the cheese melt.
