potatoes - peeled and cubed
smoked sausage, sliced
green bell peppers, chopped
I have made a similar recipe like this for years, but instead of smoked sausage, you MUST try this with Italian sausage (hot or mild). I start this off by heating a little olive oil in a skillet and start cooking my potatoes. After the potatoes have a good start, I add the hot sausage, cut into cubes as well and cook that. This gives the potatoes a WONDERFUL flavor. I then add sliced red and green peppers and sliced onions. I put a lid on it and let it cook so that the potatoes get soft. YUMMY! This is great on a buffet for a party. I haven't made this for a while, but writing this review has made me hungry for it, and now I know what tomorrow's dinner will be!
I have been cooking this for a few years now, only I fix a much lower fat version using turkey sausage and pam cooking spray. As far as the potatoes go, I find it easiest to cook them in the microwave first and then fry them in the pan with the onions and peppers. It's much faster that way than to cook the potatoes raw in the pan. Just stir it a lot so they don't burn. I also add a lot of pepper and Creole seasoning, then top with torn up 2% cheese slices. Everything gooes together and it's soooo good, without being 800 and some calories a serving.
A small hint about cooking potatoes: If you like your potatoes a little more firm, salt when you start them to cook. If you like them softer, salt when they are about half way done or when finished cooking. Has always worked for me :-)
Very good and easy to make. My boyfriend in particular thought this was the cats meow! I cooked the sausage seperatly as others have mentioned, added garlic, onion powder and 2 TBLS chicken broth when sauting the potatoes. In addition, used 1 red/1 green bell pepper for more color and variety and sprinkled some shredded cheese overall. I would make this easy & economical meal again...esspecially on busy nights! Thanks Jennifer.
Wonderful hearty recipe and I give it a 5.
My family loved this & I'm not sure it can get much easier (excluding a crock pot meal). I cut the vege oil to 1 tbsp. & used lite smoked sausage & it wasn't greasy at all. I did add garlic powder... but next time, I will add minced garlic. This is great & easy, thanks Jennifer! ;)
Very good basic recipe....I used Andouille sausage and added some hot sauce, garlic and Cajun seasonings. The leftovers make a delicious breakfast fry up the next morning, just toss in a skillet with eggs for a good meal in a pinch.
Good side dish with eggs Sunday morning! I grated the potatoes, used 1 pound of sliced kielbasa (cooked separately because of the grease), cut the peppers to one and added garlic powder and a touch of salt.Yummy!
