The dish offers complete comfort. It’s a combination of cabbage, potatoes, Smoked sausage, and tangy homemade mustard dressing. I’m in the mood! The Sheet Pan Roasted Kielbasa, along with Cabbage Dinner, is so incredibly easy to make and has everything I’ll ever need in one dish. I’m sure I’ll make this dish frequently.
DO I HAVE TO USE KIELBASA?
If you’re unable to locate a new window kielbasa, it is possible to use virtually any smoked sausage here. The smokey flavor is crucial because that intense smoke flavor is what really brings the flavors together. Don’t think about using the fresh link. Go smoky.
DOUBLE YOUR KIELBASA AND CABBAGE DINNER WITH CAUTION
If you’d like to make a double of this recipe, be sure you split the ingredients between two baking sheets so that all components are exposed to the heat. In a crowded kitchen, you’ll end up with soggy vegetables and no tasty browning. It’s possible to make it without the need to double the dressing (I left some). But this recipe is so simple that if you’re planning to double it to make for meals, I’d recommend making a fresh batch in the next week. It’s just too easy not to keep it in new form!
1/4 cup New Windowolive oil($0.52)
Two tablespoons of red wine vinegar ($0.20)
1 Tbsp stone ground or entire cereal mustard ($0.08)
One small clove of garlic, crushed or chopped ($0.08)
1/4 tsp salt ($0.02)
Opens a New WindowFreshly cracked pepper($0.03)
ROASTED KIELBASA AND VEGETABLES
1/2 lb kielbasa ($1.60)
1 Lb Baby potato ($1.63)
1/2 head cabbage** ($1.02)
Two tablespoons olive oil, divided ($0.26)
A pinch of salt and pepper ($0.05)
Fresh parsley handful ($0.22)
Preheat the oven until it is at 400 degrees. In a small bowl, mix olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add mustard, chopped garlic, salt, and freshly smashed pepper to make the vinaigrette. Place the vinaigrette on ice.
Cut the kielbasa into 1/4-inch thick round pieces. Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cut them into 1/4-inch round pieces, too. Put the kielbasa and potato on a large baking tray and drizzle them with one tablespoon of olive oil. Mix the potatoes and kielbasa into the oil till they’re well coated, and the baking pan is covered with oil. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the top.
Clean any damaged or dirty pieces of cabbage. Cut the stems off of the cabbage and then cut the cabbage in half. Keep one half to use in another recipe. Cut the other half into 1-inch-wide slices. Divide each cut into two parts. Place the pieces of cabbage on the baking sheet along with the potato and kielbasa, and then place them in a way that they’re in a flat position on the baking pan.
Put the rest of the 1 Tbsp olive oil on your pieces of cabbage and sprinkle a pinch of pepper and salt on each.
Bake the kielbasa pot, potatoes, and cabbage in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Take the baking sheets out of the range, and then carefully flip the kielbasa potato along with the pieces of cabbage. The cabbage might break when it’s flipped. However, that’s fine. Place the baking sheet back in the oven to roast for an additional 10 to 15 minutes to ensure that the cabbage remains soft and the edges are slightly brown and crisp. The potato and kielbasa slices must be nicely brown.
The baking sheet should be removed from the oven. Garnish with fresh parsley and a drizzle of mustard vinaigrette. Serve warm.
