Roasted Dutch meal

Roasted Dutch meal
Print Recipe
A standard Dutch meal comprises of potatoes, vegetables and meat. My grandmother used to boil the potatoes and veg while frying the meat. I simplified this by cooking all ingredients in one baking sheet in the oven. While the oven does all the work, I have quality time with my sons.
