My daughters got me a few new cookbooks for Christmas and this is the first one we've used. I have SOOOO many cookbooks and I want to cook everything in all of them. Just ask my family we NEVER EVER eat the same thing twice! Is that a good thing or a bad thing? My girls LOVE it, my boys NOT so much! My little guy HATES everything new, so trying to find that balance is very hard. (usually I am a short-order cook and whip him up something that's familiar along with a fancy recipe) But, onto this fabulous new cookbook. Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook: Crazy Delicious Recipes that Are Good to the Earth and Great for Your Bod. Kinda of a weird name for a cookbook, but the goal is to give you lessons in "bitchifying" your kitchen and chucking the crap and choosing the right ingredients for your body and for the environment.
We made this recipe, but with our own taste and comfortability in mind. We didn't go for vegan cheddar, tempeh or fresh spices. But I believe the outcome was still delicious and if you are a health-freak, then by all means go with the original recipe. We do truly love the cookbook, so do NOT let the "healthy" stuff stop you from enjoying this wonderful book: Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook: Crazy Delicious Recipes that Are Good to the Earth and Great for Your Bod
original recipe from Skinny Bitch, but changed for our taste (and what we had on hand)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
12 oz sausage (we used Jimmy Dean)
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 400.
Heat oil in large saute pan. Add the onion and cook over medium-heat. Add in the garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Add the potatoes, sausage and mushrooms. Saute for 5 minutes or until sausage is cooked. Add in the rosemary, salt, and pepper, continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.
Pour mixture into 9x13 baking dish. Bake 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft. During the last few minutes of baking, sprinkle the cheese over the potato mixture and bake until cheese melts.
