Turkey Sausage & Veggie One Pan Meal & Bialetti Covered Deep Saute Review & Giveaway (6/25)
I was sent a Bialtti pan in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
We have a few meals that I regularly make, which tend to spill over our regular frying pans. Bialetti’s Covered Deep Saute pan has come to the rescue, so to speak! I’ve found it to be a really nice, versatile pan. It’s from The Bialetti Ceramic Pro line. The bag-worthy features listed on the Bialetti site:
ceramic, nonstick eco friendly cookware
- Durable hard anodized exterior for added strength.
- Thick, even heat aluminum construction for superior heat distribution.
- Easy-clean ceramic coating cooks beautifully.
- Cast stainless steel handle goes from stovetop to oven. Riveted for security.
- Oven safe to 400°F
This is an 11-inch pan making it larger than most frying pans, and of course, it has thicker sides meaning it can hold quite a lot of food at once. It is heavy, but it has a grip on the opposite side of the handle so you can use two hands when carrying it. I’ve used this for making fajitas, jambalaya and this turkey sausage and veggies dish that I’ll share below. All of these were meals that I struggled to stir without spilling over in a typical frying pan so it’s been so much more convenient to have this larger sized pan, with a lid. It does have a small vent in the lid so steam can release a bit, but the cover does a great job of keeping foods like rice as moist as they need to be to soften.
For this turkey sausage & veggie one pan meal, I started by boiling petite yukon gold potatoes in the dish. The pan is just big enough to boil these small potatoes! I boiled them for about 15 minutes until they were very soft when poked with a fork. Then I transferred the potatoes into a bowl. I cut up a regular 12oz pack of turkey smoked sausage into bite-size pieces and lined the pan with them. I let these cook for quite a while until well-browned, as my household likes well-done meat but you can cook to your preference. I flip them every 5-10 minutes or so to ensure that both sides are done evenly. Once the turkey sausage is done, cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces and add them to the pan with the sausage. I also added in green beans (1 can), carrots (1 can) and onion (1 small) at this stage. You can use other veggies if you prefer. My carrots were canned, so they were already soft. If you want to use fresh carrots you would add them in at the beginning with the potatoes so they can soften as they boil.
There are only two downsides to this pain in my opinion. One is, it is not dishwasher safe. It needs to be hand-washed. We don’t own a dishwasher so this isn’t a factor for me at all. The other is, you always want to add oil to your pan when cooking in this pan, and you should never let food dry out/burn on the pan as it may cause discoloration and be hard to get off without damaging the coating. It’s recommended that you only use high heat in this pan if using it to boil because it does conduct heat so well.
