For today’s edition I could not decide between these two very easy recipes, so I decided to share both with you for your fall serving ideas.
SAUSAGE SHEET PAN SUPPER
1 packet of Italian dressing mix
1/4 cup olive oil
l/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/4 pounds small potatoes, cut in half
1 onion, cut into chunks
12 oz fresh green beans, trimmed
1 pound sweet Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch slices
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine dressing mix, oil, and pepper; mix well. Add potatoes, onion and green beans and toss until evenly coated. Spread on rimmed baking sheet.
Bake 15 minutes, then add sausage to veggies mixture and stir. Bake 20-25 minutes more, or until sausage is no longer pink in color and potatoes are fork tender. Serve immediately.
Etc. This is one of the easiest ways to get dinner on the table for your family, without doing a lot of work or ending up with a ton of dishes. The supper entree cooks all at once, on one baking sheet! The result is a zesty and flavorful meal. If you want only a side dish of vegetables, eliminate the sausage and just serve the veggies!
JOHNNY APPLESEED CAKE
1 package yellow cake mix
1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
l/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9 x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients by hand or with an electric mixer. Pour into prepared baking dish.
Bake 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Dollup with whipped cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon for an even tastier treat.
Etc. This very simple cake a tribute to Johnny Appleseed for his delicious deeds is a great way to enjoy this very tasty and nutritious fruit.
