Instructions

When Making Ahead

  1. NOTE:

    This meal can be prepped the morning or day before depending on which ingredients you used.

    If you're making this at the same time as a casserole you could bake it at a lower temperature but then it would take longer and might not crisp up as much.

  2. Prepare all the ingredients and toss them into a large bowl along with the seasonings and oil.

  3. Mix well.

  4. Seal the top with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge until it's closer to supper time.

  5. About 45 minutes to an hour before supper set your oven to 425° Fahrenheit.

  6. Line one or two cookies sheets with a Silpat or with tinfoil for easier cleanup.

When Baking Now

  1. NOTE:

    If you're making this at the same time as a casserole you could bake it at a lower temperature but then it would take longer and might not crisp up as much.

  2. Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit.

  3. Dice the meat and veggies and spread it out over one or two lined cookie sheets.

  4. Drizzle the vegetables with the oil and sprinkle with the seasonings.

  5. Toss gently to coat.

Baking!

  1. When the oven is fully preheated put the cookie sheet(s) in.

  2. Check on the food after 20 minutes. At this point take out the cookie sheets, toss the contents, and put them back swapped so they bake evenly.

  3. Keep an eye on the food and pull it out once the vegetables are perfectly browned. If the food was crowded on the cookie sheets they may not brown.

  4. Serve as is or enjoy it over top of quinoa, farro, or a pasta dish. The possibilities are endless!
