Roasted Apple, Vegetable and Kielbasa Bake


      I stumbled across this recipe online and was immediately drawn to it's ease of preparation plus any time you roast vegetables in your dutch oven they are bound to be good.  I scaled back the amount of vegetables from the original recipe but you can easily add more if you like, just try not to pile them too deep in your oven or they will steam rather than roast and caramelize.  In my 12 inch dutch oven they baked for a total of 40 minutes with 12 coals in a ring around the base of the oven and the lid completely covered with briquettes.  Add a handful of dried cranberries to dress it up for your holiday table. 

Roasted Apple, Vegetable and Kielbasa Bake

1 lb Kielbasa, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
2 Tblsp olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

     Lightly oil or spray 12 inch or larger dutch oven.
     Combine apples, veggies and Kielbasa in oven.
     Add olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper, and toss to coat.

  2. Liddy, Allison made this the other day. It turned out really good. I ate the leftovers the next day and added some bbq sauce. That was a great lunch too.

    1. So glad to hear you liked the recipe Aaron, bbq sauce sounds like a great addition, there is something about smoky roasted veggies in a dutch oven that can't be beat. Liddy

  3. Liddy, this has become a staple in our house. Allison will usually omit the apples but we seriously have it at least twice a month. Yummy stuff!
