Turkey Sausage, Potatoes, and Peppers!

Hi guys!
Sorry I have been a little absent this week; I haven't been able to get in a good groove of managing my time this week!
Today I have a super easy, quick, and delicious weeknight dinner recipe for you! I was thinking though when I made it that this summer it would be fun to serve this when company comes over!
It takes very little prep, and there won't be a lot of dishes to do after dinner which is always a plus!
Hope you enjoy!

Roasted Turkey Sausage, Potatoes, and Peppers
  • 3 links of turkey sausage (We use Jennie-O, but you could also use regular pork sausage if that is what you prefer)
  • 3-4 medium sized red baking potatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 cup canned banana peppers; drained. ( I accidentally bought the Hot banana peppers, but it was very tasty if you like spicy foods)
  • 2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Creole seasoning if you want a little extra kick (optional)
  1. Cut your sausage links into chunks, prep all of your potatoes and veggies
  2. In a foil-lined baking pan that has a little bit of a lip to it to avoid a mess, toss potatoes, bell pepper, onion, and sausage with the 2 tbsp of olive oil; making sure that it all gets covered and mixed well.
  3. After tossing, spread your mixture evenly across the baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, followed by the banana peppers to top it off
  4. Bake at 400 for about 30-35 minutes. The best way to judge if it is ready is to stick a fork into your potatoes to see if they are completely baked.
This exact recipe was dinner for the two of us, plus we each had lunch for the next day making it 4 full servings. If you were to pair it with a salad or different side it could make 6 smaller servings.
When I plugged this into my calorie counter 1/4 of the recipe is 296 calories.
