Roasted Roots

This began as another Jamie Oliver recipe:

Bubble and Squeak with Sausages and Onion Gravy

And then I ran out of time over the weekend and ended up having to make it on a Monday night after work. Needless to say I wasn't much in the mood to cook.  So instead, I cut up all the veggies the night before (carrots, potatoes, turnip, brussels sprouts) and popped them all in the crockpot before I left for work in the morning.  I mixed it all up with olive oil, sea salt, onion powder, pepper and herbs de provence. *On low for 8-10 hours.

Then, when I got home that night, I had some yummy slow-cooked (roasted) veggies to snack on while I made the rest of the recipe (the sausages and onion gravy).  I "cheated" a little bit on that part too...buying a sausage that was already one big spiral...whereas in the recipe you create your own with two different kinds of linked sausage.

Then I put it all together! And it travels really well for work lunches!

I love coming home to a crockpot meal...the house smells soooo good! And then I imagine the scent of frying sausage added to the mix, and well, it sounds simply delicious! Theresa
