Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, Peppers and Onions

My family is doing a no eating out challenge for the month and it’s been VERY difficult.  Sometimes it would be so easy to grab fast food, but we’re all very competitive and not going to fail.  We are getting tired of slow cooker and Instant Pot meals so I thought I would change it up.

This smoked sausage recipe with potatoes and peppers is an easy weeknight dinner. Make sure to save your leftovers or even double the recipe! This is a delicious breakfast. You can even add a fried egg on top.

Doesn’t it look so good?? The cooking time on this is only 15 minutes and no baking dish needed.

Ingredients for Smoked Sausage and Potatoes Skillet

Smoked sausage– I used beef sausage, but you can use your favorite. Hillshire Farms has chicken and turkey sausage. I think they even have Italian sausage.

Potatoes– I like to use red potatoes, but you can even switch this out and use sweet potatoes if you prefer.

Bell Peppers– I used one yellow anbd one orange, but you can use whatever you have at your house. I normally get one of those colored 3-packs at the grocery store. so I use what comes in that

Olive oil

Onion

Basil– This recipe calls for dried basil, but if you use fresh you’ll need to reduce the amount you use.

Salt and black pepper to taste
