Winter may not be my favorite season, but there’s something to be said for cold-weather comfort foods. Something about having a warm, bubbling dish to welcome you in from the cold is pretty special. We’ve missed out on most of the snow nearby areas are getting, but we got enough one day for Clara to enjoy it before it melted. Snow days definitely call for hearty dinners, and this cobbler was exactly what we needed.
Savory cobblers are pretty fantastic. I mean, you take a delicious filling and top it with biscuits. There’s pretty much no way to go wrong. This recipe is brimming with ingredients we love – sausage, beans, spinach, red peppers. Other than the spinach, the others are all foods Clara loves. We usually chop extra red pepper for her because she is constantly grabbing it off the cutting board while we’re cooking. Beans have long been a favorite of hers, and we can count on her to eat them in just about anything. The biscuits use a mix of cornmeal and flour, which gives them a wonderful texture. I used whole wheat flour because I love the nutty flavor it provides.
You really can’t beat this dinner on a cold night. It comes together quickly in one pan, making for easy cooking and easier cleanup.
