  • 6 medium Yukon gold potatoes sliced ¼" thick
  • 1 pound smoked sausage sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 red bell pepper large chop
  • 1 yellow onion large chop
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup chicken broth


  • Add one tablespoon of cooking oil to a large skillet set over medium heat and add chopped peppers, onion, and sausage. Saute until peppers and onion are tender and sausage is seared. Add garlic and cook for an additional minute, then remove everything from the pan and set aside.
  • Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet and add sliced potatoes, along with all seasonings. Cook until the potatoes begin browning, then add chicken broth and cover. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for ten minutes, or until the liquid has absorbed and the potatoes are tender.
  • Return the sausage, peppers, onion, and garlic to the skillet with the potatoes and toss everything to combine. Once everything is heated through serve immediately.


Feel free to customize the seasonings to fit your tastes.
If you wish to add a fresh topping, I recommend green onion or chives.
