Irish Meal in a Bowl, Baked Chopped

How much more Irish can this get? Corned Beef, Cabbage (Sauerkraut), Potatoes, Peas, Irish Cheddar and more. Bake it now or make it ahead. That’s the versatility of The Baked Chopped. I chose to put this together early in the AM and bake it when guests arrived. There are so many veggies and healthful ingredients in this Baked Chopped, you’ll need two baking sheets and at least a 13 X 9 Baking dish to contain it all! I used my brand new shiny Lasagna Pan from All Clad!

I made this for friends for Oscar night, knowing St. Paddy’s day is not far away. Planning ahead! I made a similar Baked Chopped last year. I thought I’d tweak it with one additional healthful ingredient. We covered Probiotics in Week 7 of “The Real Food Experience” so Sauerkraut has more than ever been on my radar. It’s one of the easiest Stealthy/Healthy ingredients you can add to a Chopped.

This recipe is naturally Gluten Free. If you want to keep it dairy free, just drop the cheese. Or if you like a vegan version of cheese you could use that. Want to make this a vegetarian Chopped? Sub the corned beef for 1 can of Red Kidney Beans (drained and rinsed).

The leftovers are so tasty topped with a runny egg. Can’t wait for lunch!

Yield: Serves 6-8

Pre Heat oven to 450 degrees

Bowl/Baking Sheets Ingredients: Chop all into 1 inch uniform pieces.
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 cup Chopped Zucchini
1 cup Chopped Carrot
6 Brown Mushrooms, Chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, seeded and Chopped
1 Fennel Bulb, Chopped
1 cup Chopped Green Beans
1 Leek, Chopped
3 cups Chopped Red Potato
1 teaspoon Thyme
1 teaspoon Dried Sage
1 teaspoon Kosher or Sea Salt.
1/2 teaspoon Freshly ground Black Pepper

Bowl/Sauce Ingredients:
1 15 oz. can Tomato Sauce or 2 cups homemade
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, w no salt added
6 oz. Chopped, Sliced Deli Corned Beef. Of course you can use homemade!
1/2 cup Frozen Peas. You don’t even need to defrost them
1 cup Sauerkraut, drained and Chopped
4 oz. Grated White Cheddar Cheese. I used Irish Dubliner. Reserve 1 oz. for topping
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

Zing Factor: For it’s Stealthy/Healthy anti inflammatory properties
1 Teaspoon Turmeric

Bowl/Baking Sheet Prep:

Chop’em and Drop’em as directed into a Large Bowl. Stir all together to distribute the oil and spices. Pour half on one baking sheet and half on another. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, turning once half way through cooking time. Remove from oven and let stand. If you’re baking this now, leave the oven at the same temp. If not, reheat to 450 degrees when you’re ready.

Bowl/Sauce ingredients Prep: In the same bowl as you mixed the veggies, add the sauce ingredients including the Zing Factor, if desired. Stir to combine.

Add the roasted veggies to the bowl and stir gently. Pour the mixture into your baking dish or large casserole. Top with reserved Cheese.

Everything is cooked at this point, so all you are doing is heating everything through and creating that gooey cheesy topping everyone loves. This should take about 20 minutes. If you make it ahead, plan on about 25 minutes baking time. Let the Baked Chopped stand for about 15 minutes before… “Getting Your Spoons Ready!”

    This looks fabulous, KC! I’m definitely putting it on the menu if I have left over corned beef. That’s a big IF! LOL

  2. Miranda says:

    This looks so yummy! I am going to have to give it a try. My hubby is not a fan of the traditional St. Patty’s day dinner or corned beef and cabbage, so I need to find something else Irish for this year. Thanks for sharing on Fitness Fridays on Drops of Learning!

    • adminKC says:

      I think he’ll really like this one. The combo of ingredients is traditional, but the result is very different and delish!

  3. Erlene says:

    Wow, this dish sure packs in the veggies. My kids enjoy casseroles with lots of vegetables with some meat, but not sure if they will like the sauerkraut. Do you think I can leave that out?

    • adminKC says:

      You could, Erlene, but I promise you they’ll never know it’s in there. I call this “Hiding Veggies in Plain Sight”. Don’t tell them and give it a go. I’m like your kids, not much of a fan, but I know it’s so healthful I had to figure a way to “get it in there!” I add it to soup too. It’s virtually unrecognizable. Let me know how this works out for you!

  23. Audrey says:

    I love dishes like this. Unfortunately, my son doesn’t like his food mixed. He’d pick out all of the potatoes and eat those, then the meat, etc. Dinner could last for hours. Hey, that isn’t a bad idea…

    Saw this on Merry Mondays.

  24. Oh, I don’t think I will be waiting for St Patrick’s to be tucking into this one. Looks amazing!

    Thanks for linking up to Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.
