Ruby’s Hot Links and Potato Casserole

 

This recipe is from one of my friends that I have known and worked with on the ambulance for many years. It is inspired from The Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Don’t let the “casserole” title put you off, this is not a true casserole other than you cook it in a casserole shaped dish.

This recipe can also be found in the cookbook titled Code 7 Recipes for the Soul: Cooking with First Responders. (Ruby played a huge part of putting this book together). The book is dedicated to all First Responders and their families. Proceeds will provide funding for the San Mateo County Firefighters, IAFF L2400 Behavioral Health Program for firefighters, paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT).

Ingredients:

  • 8 hot links
  • 4 medium russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 medium onion. quartered
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste (Ruby uses Lawry’s seasoning salt and so did I)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil 9 X 13 pan.

In large bowl place the first six ingredients and drizzle with oil while mixing well. Put in prepared pan and cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Turn potatoes several times during cooking and test for doneness. They should be golden brown. Ruby serves this with a green salad and French bread. Yes, its that easy. Enjoy!
