- 1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
- 2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 large bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons of oil (vegetable, canola, or your preference)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Your favorite herbs (such as parsley or thyme), for garnish
- Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Allow it to heat up for a minute or two.
- Once the oil shimmers, add the sliced smoked sausage to the skillet and cook until it develops a beautiful, caramelized exterior. This should take around 5-7 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
- Once the sausage is nicely browned, remove it from the skillet and set it aside for now.
- In the same skillet, add the cubed potatoes, thinly sliced bell pepper, and onion. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over it and stir to combine.
- Reduce the heat to medium and let the potato mixture cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender and slightly crispy.
- At this point, return the cooked sausage to the skillet and toss everything together.
- Cook for an additional 5 minutes to allow the sausage to reheat and the flavors to mingle further. Keep stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
- Sprinkle your favorite herbs on top for some added freshness and visual appeal.
Tips & Variations:
- For a spicy twist, add some crushed red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce to the skillet.
