Cake pan potatoes and meat.
I call this cake pan potatoes and meat because it is all baked in a cake pan and I serve as a complete meal.
For this recipe you will need:
4 very large potatoes or 6-8 normal potatoes
6 Polish sausages
For the gravy you will need:
2 sticks of butter
1 heaping cup of flour
Milk ( amount depends on your thickness of gravy)
salt and pepper to taste.
You can preheat the oven to 200 degrees for longer baking or 350 degrees for a couple of hours. I recommend you to cover in foil when using the higher temp method. I have used both due to when I was able to prepare this.
First thing I do is get my cake pan ready by spraying some non-stick spray in it. I then slice the potatoes and place in the pan.
I then cut up my polish sausage and fry.
Once my polish sausage is fried I then place on top of my potatoes in the cake pan.
Now you are ready to make the gravy. Melt two sticks of butter in a large fry pan. Once the butter is melted I add my salt and pepper, then added a heaping cup of flour. Mix this well and let it cook for a couple of minutes. You will need a whisk once you start adding the milk. You will add milk slowly and keep whisking the mix to get all of the lumps out. While you are whisking the mix you will notice it getting thick and this is when you know to add more milk. If you know how to make milk gravy then this is a simple task for you. I not long ago learned how to make milk gravy and it is the only gravy I make. I make my gravy for this thin but too thin. It is a little thicker then milk. Once you have got your gravy made you can then add to your potatoes and sausage. Please note if this is your first time making gravy whatever you do don’t let your gravy boil.
Now you are ready to place this in the oven; however, there is two was that I have baked this. One way is at a very low temp of 200 degrees. I let them bake slowly because they are put into the oven earlier in the day. ( I had time to prepare while my little one took a nap.) When baking at this low temp it takes about 3 to 4 hours to cook.
You can also cover them in tin foil and bake at 350 degrees until potatoes are done. I cannot tell you how long they bake for because it will depend on the thickness of your potatoes. I don’t have thick or thin potatoes and it only takes a couple of hours to bake.
I have picky kids but they love this. My son Garrett doesn’t eat potatoes unless I make them like this. Tonight he had seconds. Sometimes we have muffins or a slice of bread with peanut butter to go along with it. The think I like about this recipe is that if you use paper plates then you only have one pan and silverware to wash! Easy clean up’s are favorite.
Now cleaning up after this little one is a little more messier and that is because he so enjoys his food.
I hope your family enjoys this meal as much as our does. Tomorrow will be a new recipe that my family ask for all the time but I really do get burnt out on it……
