My toddler is obsessed with making food videos or as he calls them “foodeos.” I have a set-up in my kitchen when I’m filming that consists of 2 artificial lights, an overhead camera, and a large TV monitor. I used to make these videos without a monitor and it has been SO much easier to see what I’m doing while I am actually filming.

That said, because of that monitor, I now need to take “turns” with my toddler and schedule time with him for when I want to use it. I get my “turn” when the baby is taking his nap and Grey gets his turn when the baby wakes up. He makes his own videos every single time that I film and he could make videos for hours if I let him.

Most of his videos consist of mixing together different kinds of cereal or adding nutella to graham crackers, but he is very serious about this “job.” You can see a video of him in action here. He grabs out dozens of measuring cups and bowls and spoons and sits there excitedly watching himself make “recipes” on the monitor.

Every 20 or so minutes, the camera shuts off (which triggers the monitor to shut off) since we aren’t actually recording the footage. He gets very concerned that his recipe won’t be “on mama’s camera.”

I’ve filmed maybe 10 or so minutes of his recipe videos which he watches over and over again while exclaiming, “yummy!! that’s a good foodeo mama.”

He came home from preschool when I was about halfway through filming this video and sat on the counter by me watching the entire thing. Everything I do on my videos, he’ll imitate later on his own. That includes the “snapping” (which he hasn’t quite got down yet), lifting bowls towards the camera, and waving his hand over food.

While he was watching me film this video he kept saying over and over again “Mom, you’re making hot dogs for me?! I love hot dogs! This is going to be a good foodeo because of the hot dogs.” He thinks turkey sausage is hot dogs and it’s probably his favorite thing in the world to have for dinner. (Have you noticed by the plethora of sausage on my site?!)

He couldn’t even wait for me to take pictures before eating a few of the “hot dogs” and anxiously stood by while I snapped a few shots. To distract him for a minute I gave him the pepper grinder which he promptly ground pepper all over the bowl of food. In fact, the second photo in this post are his little hands.

So to tell you he loved this dish would be an understatement — definitely toddler approved! And when the babe woke up from his nap he inhaled the (cut-up) potatoes, carrots, and sausage. If you’re looking for a super family friendly meal that is packed with good ingredients and crazy easy to make, this is the recipe!


One Pan Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Asparagus, and Sausage

Roasted garlic and herb potatoes, asparagus, carrots, onions, and sausage all prepared on one sheet pan. An easy family-friendly meal.

  • 1 pound baby red potatoes
  • 8 ounces (1/2 of a 16-ounce bag) petite baby carrots
  • 1 teaspoon of EACH dried basil, dried thyme, dried oregano, and paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and cracked pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (separated)
  • 8 ounces (2 cups) asparagus
  • 1/2 large yellow onion
  • 1 package (13 ounces) skinless smoked sausage ((we use turkey sausage))
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • Optional: fresh parsley

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a very large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil for easier clean-up (optional).

  2. Halve the baby red potatoes (or cube if they are larger). In a small bowl, mix together all of the seasonings: the dried basil, thyme, oregano, paprika, onion powder, and salt pepper (I use a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of each). Mix together.

  3. Place the halved red potatoes and baby carrots on the sheet pan. Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil and half of the seasoning mix on top. Toss to combine and place in the oven for 20 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, prepare the asparagus by trimming the ends and cutting into 2 inch pieces. Thinly slice the yellow onion. Coin the sausage.

  5. Remove the potatoes and carrots from the oven and using a spatula push them to one side of the pan. On the other side add in the chopped asparagus, sliced onion, sausage, and minced garlic. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and remaining seasoning mix. Toss to combine and then toss those ingredients with the potatoes and carrots.

  6. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until veggies are roasted to your desired preference. Top the dish with freshly grated parmesan and fresh parsley as desired.

  7. Enjoy immediately.
