Smoked Sausage Skillet Recipe

Just got home from work and realized we didn’t get anything out of the freezer to thaw. We can still have dinner on in about 30 minutes with this quick recipe.

This recipe can change depending on what you have available or what your family likes. Shall we start?

Quick, grab that package of smoked sausage or polish kielbasa from the freezer and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. I put a cast iron skillet on the stove to heat. Medium heat works best. Grab some potatoes and scrub them. I use the equivalent of a fist-sized potato for each serving I make. Dice the potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes. If you don’t use cast iron, this is where you put the pan on the stove with a bit of oil. In my case, I add some oil to my cast iron skillet. I use peanut oil, just a thin layer on the bottom of the pan. Let it get hot so the potatoes will crisp on the outside.

Add the potatoes and some of those frozen diced onions you keep in the freezer. Sprinkle with some seasoned salt and stir until things are coated. Cover with a lid and go put on some comfortable clothes or check the kid’s homework.

Stir every five minutes or so until the potatoes are tender. In the meantime, dice the smoked sausage so it’s about the same size as the potatoes. When the potatoes are tender, add the smoked sausage and stir. Grab a can of corn and drain the juice. Add to the skillet. Cook and stir until everything is hot, usually about 5 minutes.

Dinner is served!

Change ups:

Try cooking some okra with the potatoes. Try it with or without the corn.

Italian sausage works pretty good but I leave out the seasoned salt.

Please let me know how you like it and what changes you made. Enjoy!
