Fabulous Side Dish
Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes and Cabbage is a fabulous side dish or a main. We were only able to get a little taste each because the youngest took a little taste and then ran away with the whole darn tray. That little turkey! It is that good that it is a fun study snack with those crispy little addictive cabbage slices. Don’t take our word for it. Give it a try. Actually, with bacon (protein), savoy cabbage (vegetable) and red potato (carbohydrate) it’s a full meal. Before a (somebody inhaled the entire tray) we were planning on serving our Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes and Cabbage as a side dish for our Mushroom Chicken and Brandy Sauce or your favorite corned beef recipe.
Low Fassum vs Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes and Cabbage
We used savoy cabbage because originally the little turkey that ran away with the entire tray of our Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes and Cabbage was going to make a Low Fassum. A low fassum is an epic whole stuffed cabbage," that is filled to the brim with salty prosciutto, pancetta and pork. Have you ever tried to make a Low Fassum? May we add that a Low Fassum takes 5.5 hours to make and has about 20 ingredients. However, our Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes and Cabbage has only 6 ingredients. Hands down, we know our choice. What is your choice?
Substitutions are Welcome
Feel free to exchange savoy cabbage with either a plain purple or green cabbage. The savoy cabbage has lacy leaves that seem to get crispier faster than regular cabbage but both work well. We love little red potatoes because when roasted they are creamy in the middle and crispy on the outside. You can use any potato you have on hand but make sure you chop in a symmetrical shape so they bake evenly. We diced each of little red potatoes into 8 little cubes and that was about 1.5 inch cubes to perfectly roast in about 30 minutes.
Olive Oil Transcends Every World Cuisine
We even use olive to stir fry our Asian recipes. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Heart Healthy and a great addition to any Mediterranean diet. Mie Radici EVOO is lovely as a drizzle right before serving. Salads, pastas, grilled vegetables and meats are just delicious. A family business in Italy that has roots here in Michigan.
Helpful Hints for Making Crispy Roasted Red Potatoes and Cabbage
- Use a large sheet pan and make sure your potatoes are evened out and not over lapping on the sheet pan. If they are crowded and top of each they will steam instead of brown.
- Slather your potatoes, cabbage and onions well with olive oil to help with the browning process.
- Put your bacon on top so they brown and then as they cook the bacon essence drizzles on top of your potatoes and cabbage. Oh, so good.
- We placed everything on the sheet pan at the same time as we like our cabbage crispy like potato chips. If you like your cabbage a little less crispy, put your potatoes in for 15 minutes to bake first before adding your other ingredients.
- After the first 15 minutes in the oven toss well so that all the ingredients have a chance to get crispy and toasty.
