Who doesn’t like the combination of sausage, potatoes, and bell peppers? This has always been one of my favorite meals. I prefer it with pork or beef Polska kielbasa, but I keep it healthier with turkey. This meal takes about thirty minutes. I’ve got some tips that will ensure this recipe comes out perfectly every time.
- 1 13 oz package of Hillshire Farm Turkey Polska Kielbasa (This is already fully cooked so you’re just reheating. It has a beef casing.)
- 2 medium russet potatoes ( you can cut these in circles or chunks)
- 2 garlic cloves (roughly chopped)
- 1/2 of red bell pepper (sliced)
- 1/2 of green bell pepper (sliced)
- 1/2 of a medium yellow onion (sliced)
- Fresh ground black pepper
- Lawry’s Seasoning salt
- Mrs. Dash non-salt seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Basil or any herb you prefer
- Mild cheddar cheese (optional)
- Frank’s Red Hot sauce (optional)
The key to this dish is cooking the potatoes just right. I heat up a splash of olive oil in a non-stick pan and add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Then place the potatoes in the pan and let them cook until the water boils out. The potatoes should be tender. Add a little more olive oil and fry the potatoes. Season with seasoning salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil, and Mrs. Dash. Don’t over fry the potatoes or have them soaking in grease. This ruins the dish. You shouldn’t even have to drain the potatoes on a paper towel when they’re done.
Sausage and Vegetables
Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the pan. Add more olive oil and saute’ the garlic, onion, red and green bell peppers for several minutes. Now add the sliced turkey and season with the same ingredients used to season the potatoes. The turkey is already cooked so just brown the sausage. I cook the vegetables until they’re softened with a bite. I don’t like them overcooked.
Now add the potatoes back into the dish and mix everything together. Let everything cook for several more minutes.
Doesn’t this look delicious? The spicy meat. The sweetness of the potatoes. And crunchy vegetables.
I like to kick it up a notch and melt shredded mild cheddar cheese on top and add a drizzle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce. It’s the perfect meal. If you like this post, please hit the Follow button for more like it.
