As much as I love to cook, I am not a fan of spending a lot of time in the kitchen most evenings. My afternoons are busy and more often than not, I find myself rushing to make dinner before someone in the family has to leave again for some kind of practice.
So when I can find easy meals that not only satisfy the whole family, but use real, basic ingredients, I’m thrilled. And my family is thrilled. It’s the ultimate situation for a busy mom like me.
This past week, I picked up some Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, and along with a few simple ingredients I already had at home, created a filling and tasty meal that the whole family loved.
Simply Potatoes is a line of refrigerated, prepared potatoes made by the Crystal Farms Company. Crystal Farms is also known for great-tasting, high-quality cheese, eggs, butter and English muffins found in the dairy section. Simply Potatoes products are:
- Fresh, never frozen and made with real ingredients
- Located in the refrigerated dairy section (I found mine next to the meats)
- Easy to prepare and have on hand for quick and easy meals (like one-pot skillets and casseroles) – no peeling, dicing or shredding required
Sausage and Potato Skillet
- 1 bag Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes
- 1/2 pound ground sausage
- 1 green bell pepper or 2-3 small peppers, diced
- 1 small onion, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
- Heat oil in large skillet. Saute peppers and onion for 3-5 minutes. Add garlic for the last minute or so. Remove sauteed vegetables from skillet and set aside.
- In the same skillet, add ground sausage and cook, stirring, until almost cooked through. Add Simply Potatoes diced potatoes and stir. Cover skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir every few minutes until the potatoes and sausage are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Add peppers and onion mixture back to the skillet and stir til combined.
Because the potatoes were already seasoned and sausage is a well-seasoned meat, I didn’t even have to add any seasoning or salt. We all remarked that the potatoes and sausage would also go together perfectly in a breakfast dish, so I think that’s what we’ll be doing next.
