Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans - Tastemaker



I was super excited when the UPS man delivered a box to my door.  It said it contained dry ice, what could it be?  As part of the Taste Maker program through Food Buzz I received four bags of Steamfresh Chef’s Favorites from Birdseye!  These varieties will be in stores at the end of the month.  All of them sounded interesting, but so far this is my favorite. 


As you may remember, I am on a mission to clean out my freezer.  The other night I was digging and I found two Brats, and a small bag of pizza bagels.  Really can't remember when the pizza bagels were from, but they still looked good.  So I boiled the brats in beer and onions, and then finished them off on the grill.  The pizza bagels went to my 6 year old, which he was a little depressed about.  He learned he liked brats this summer, so he was a little sad he didn't get to have one.  Next up, sides.  What was I going to do for sides with the brats.  These were perfect.  They are done in 5 min and 30 seconds.  They have green beans and potatoes, a little for everyone!  And the sauce was creamy and delicious.   I look forward to these being in the stores, so I can have them again!

We buy a lot of these Steamfresh veggies, beats the ones in the can and when you don't want to go out for fresh produce.

I've never cooked potatoes and green beans together even though I love BOTH! I have to check out this package when it's in store..sounds like very easy and great backup side dish. I normally don't use frozen veggies but it doesn't hurt to keep one for emergency!

I liked this bag a lot too. Red potatoes are my favorite. Your beer brats sound so tasty, my hubby would have loved those!

We're very fortunate, our neighbourhood has several green grocers, so buying fresh and local is easier than trekking off to the large grocery store!

Big fan of brats and beer! I am so with you about not wasting. Food costs way too much money and with a little creative thought you came up with a tasty dish!

Thanks for sharing:)
