Oven Baked Breakfast Potatoes with Breakfast Sausage
This brunch menu includes 3 different dishes that can be cooked at the same time in one oven using the True Convection or Convection Bake mode. Because the cooking time and temperature are the same for all 3 recipes, you can plan the cooking so the food will be ready to serve at the exact time you want to eat. The menu includes a frittata-style dish with green chilis and cheese, a baked french toast casserole, and to round it out some roasted potatoes with sausage and peppers.
Each dish serves 6 - 8 people.
1 lb small golden or red potatoes, cut into quarters
1 small red pepper, seeds removed, cut into 1” chunks
1 small yellow pepper, seeds removed, cut into 1” chunks
½ red onion, cut into 1” pieces
¼ cup olive oil
¼ tsp Kosher salt
½ tsp dried oregano
4 smoked chicken apple sausages cut into 4 - 5 diagonal slices
Heat the oven in the Convection or Convection Bake mode 325°F.
Combine the potatoes with the peppers and onion, olive oil, salt, and seasoning and spread onto a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, remove from the oven and fold in the sliced sausage. Return to the oven and continue cooking for another 10 - 15 minutes.
Note: The two other casseroles both need to rest for at least 10 minutes before serving so the potatoes can go in a little later and once the casseroles come out of the oven the temperature can be increased to 375°F for the last 10 minutes of cooking to crisp the potatoes.

Baked Ham with Tangerine Glaze and Roasted Carrots
Since ham is already cooked by smoking it is most often eaten cold, however heated through and brushed with a fruity glaze it makes a great centerpiece for celebration meals.
In order to heat the ham through it usually needs a fair bit of time in a slow oven and to avoid drying out the meat it is covered until the final stage when the glaze is added. However, if you bake your unsliced ham in Convection you will not need to cover the ham and the heating through time will take approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours, depending on the weight of the ham. If you are heating a sliced ham then it must remain covered in foil to avoid drying out.
1 - smoked ham, bone-in, skin on 7 - 9 lbs
1 - bunch fresh sage leaves
¾ - cup olive oil
1 - cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
2 - cups tangerine juice
2 - tangerines, sliced thin, seeds removed
2 - cups, packed light brown sugar
1 - cup water
½ - teaspoon whole cloves
2 - cinnamon sticks
1 ½ - lbs baby carrots
Preheat the oven in the Convection Mode 300 degrees.
Place the ham on a rack in a large roasting pan.
Score the ham with cuts in a diamond pattern about 2 inches apart and ½ deep.
Season generously with salt and pepper. Chop 8 of the sage leaves and mix with the olive oil to make a paste, rub all of the ham getting into the slits.
Bake for 2 hours.
Combine the butter, tangerine juice, tangerines, brown sugar, water and spices in a heavy medium saucepan and heat over medium heat.
Bring to a gentle boil and simmer until the liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze, 30 - 40 minutes.
Brush the glaze over the ham when it has completed its initial heating phase. Add the baby carrots and another 8 chopped sage leaves and continue baking for another 40 - 50 minutes until the carrots are tender and the internal temperature of the ham is 150 degrees.
