Orange Balsamic Fall Vegetable Skillet

I have a long list of life goals. One of those life goals is definitely to have a double oven. And no having an actual oven plus a toaster oven or an Easy Bake Oven doesn’t count in my book. I want an actual double oven.

Now I know most people are like, “Would you use that double oven other than at Thanksgiving and Christmas?”

Of course! When you like to cook and bake as much as we do, I have a feeling we would use the double oven at least once a week. There would be so many cookies and so much fresh bread in this house. Maybe it’s a good thing we don’t have a double oven. Nah…. you can never have too many carbs in one house.

But until then, I have to come up with solutions for times when the oven is chock full of food like at the holidays when I have a full turkey or roast plus stuffing and other goodies taking up the oven’s valuable, limited real estate.

Enter this Orange Balsamic Fall Vegetable Skillet. This easy, one pan dish makes the perfect side dish on Thanksgiving or Christmas without taking up any room in the oven or demanding that you stand there and watch it very closely. Nope. This side dish isn’t needy. It doesn’t mind if you have to pay attention to other food, or have a toddler hanging off your leg. It’s pretty low maintenance and forgiving.

Every holiday needs a low maintenance side dish don’t you think? It’s like a holiday’s best friend.

Basically after you chop the veggies (which you can take a shortcut with if you buy the prechopped veggies in the grocery store), you saute the onions for a few minutes, then add the rest of the ingredients to the pan. Give it a good toss and just let them hang out together for a good 20-30 minutes. The result: Brussels sprouts, squash, and apples in this savory, sweet, and sticky orange balsamic glaze, adding sweet brightness to a holiday table full of things like Italian Style Pumpkin Cheesecake or the perfectly brined birdΒ and Gluten Free Cranberry Apple Crumble.

It’s a winner. Even Goose ate the accompanying orange slices and the squash pieces in the hash. Ok, so she didn’t touch the Brussels sprouts, but a vegetable touched her lips and didn’t get spit out. #win

      Haha, so did my 2 year old. She immediately grabbed them off the platter and started eating them when I brought it to the table.

    I’m going to try this recipe. This looks so good. I love the fact it doesn’t require the oven. Thanksgiving is so hard to plan with so many dishes requiring the use of the oven.

      I know right? It’s a juggling act for sure to get everything in one oven at once!
