A Cornucopia of One-Pot Specialties

Craving a seafood feast? Look no further than the Low Country Boil, a pot brimming with sausage, shrimp, potatoes, and corn, all seasoned with Old Bay and finished with a decadent garlic butter sauce. Prefer something vegetarian? Fasolakia, a hearty Greek dish of braised green beans and potatoes, is perfect for a make-ahead meal that tastes even better the next day. And for those nights when time is tight, a Sausage, Kale and Potato Skillet Dinner comes to the rescue – a simple combination of ingredients bursting with flavor thanks to garlic, onion, lemon, and a touch of seasoning.

And for a heartier option, a meatball stew combines savory meatballs with a rich beef broth base, creating a warm and flavorful one-pot meal.
