My Hero: One Pot/Pan Dinners!

Lately I’ve heard from so many Moms and Dads saying that while they appreciate prep-ahead instructions for recipes, they still need even easier recipes.  They need ULTRA EASY!  So, I asked, what would make recipes ULTRA EASY?  The answer was either (a) Few Ingredients or (b) Everything cooks in One Pot/Pan.  Of course, there were those that want both too!  Stay tuned for a new series of 5-Ingredient recipes that are coming!  But today, I give you another One-Pan Wonder: One Pan Italian Sausage and Eggs.

Here are a couple other One Pan/Pot Meals that you may love to try!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR COOKING ‘KIT’

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Prepping meals ahead can make ALL the difference!  So, here are the steps you can do the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge…

(See the recipe below for more details)

  • Since this recipe is all about simplicity – and of course flavor! – it calls for store-bought Italian Sausage.  However, you can very easily make your own homemade turkey Italian Sausage ahead of time and even make a few batches and freeze!  CLICK HERE for the easy recipe for Turkey Italian Sausage.  If you do make the Italian Sausage, it can be made ahead and stored in a bag or container.
  • Trim bottom of Brussel sprouts and cut them in half. Put in large storage bag.
  • Cut 1 sweet bell pepper into bite size pieces (red, yellow, or orange will all be great). Add to same bag as Brussel sprouts.

  • Mince the garlic and add half to bag of Brussel sprouts/peppers. Save half for the potatoes. (you will wait to cut and season potatoes the night you cook).
    • Tip!  To make mincing garlic SUPER EASY, I use a Garlic Press.  I crush the garlic with the back of a knife and remove the skin.  Then I place it in the press and scrape the minced garlic off with a knife.  So simple and my hands don’t smell like garlic for the rest of the day!
  • Chop the parsley, adding 1 tbls to veggie bag and saving rest in storage bag.
  • Grate cheese (if needed) and put in storage bag.
  • Place the bag of brussel sprouts and peppers, the extra garlic, the parsley, the Italian Sausage and the cheese on a sheet pan or in a large bowl to keep together as your Meal KIT! The potatoes and tomatoes can stay out of the fridge.

COOK YOUR MEAL:
  • On the night you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge!
  • Preheat oven to 400, then spray the bottom of a large sheet pan with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Cut the potatoes into quarters, season with extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic, Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper. Roast in oven for 25 minutes.
  • To the bag with Brussel Sprouts & peppers, add the salt, pepper, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Gently rub around to completely coat the veggies.
  • Quarter the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  • After 20 minutes in the oven, remove the pan with the potatoes and add the seasoned veggies from the bag plus the tomatoes. Also add pieces of the sausage around the pan. Place back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, remove the pan and create 6 holes in the veggies for the eggs.

  • Crack 1 egg into each of the 6 holes.

This One Pan Italian Sausage and Eggs is LOADED with flavors and textures. You get the salty Italian Sausage, sweet bell pepper, creamy potatoes, sweet and juicy tomatoes, meaty brussel sprouts, creamy eggs, and salty, nutty cheddar cheese. Best of all, the entire meal cooks on one large pan!

  • Then, add the shredded cheese all over the top of the veggies, sausage, and eggs. Last, sprinkle parsley over top. Place back in the oven for a final 10 minutes to cook the eggs and melt the cheese, slightly browning it on top.

Serve this complete one pan meal on a plate, garnish with a bit more fresh parsley and Enjoy!
