Hello my friends! As you can tell, I havent been posting regularly. It’s not that I haven’t been cooking. I have……alot….and baking too….more than I should!!
I’m sure you will all agree that these are crazy times we are all in right now. I keep hearing everyone say that they are getting bored being cooped up indoors. I guess I am too, but I must say that I am keeping busy. I’m working from home, cleaning and organizing, sewing….baking and I have even started quilting again. I have also been quite busy keeping a certain spoiled rotten bunny occupied! She is quite hoppy having me at home all the time. She’s quite demanding and that little stinker follows me everywhere I go in the house.
I hope that you are all staying healthy and finding things to do to keep you busy. I hope you are cooking and baking!!!
So, let’s get to cookin. This is one of those super quick, comfort food dishes. I mean, it’s only 4 ingredients!! It’s so simple, but so tasty. An old friend made this for me years ago and now I make it all the time. I usually use kielbasa sausage, but it’s also good with hot links. There is something about the combination of the sausage, potatoes and green beans that is just so good. The potatoes absorb the flavor of the sausage….yummmmmm. It may sound odd, but trust me. If you make it, you will make it again and again. I did try it once with cabbage instead of the beans. It was very good. But I feel like it needs the beans. You can surely use fresh green beans, but I just use a regular ol can of beans.
I hope you try it and like it!
Sausage Potato Green Bean Skillet
1 package kielbasa sausage (its one big horseshoe shaped link)
1 or 2 medium sized cans of green beans, drained
2 good sized potatoes peeled
1/2 of a small onion, sliced thin
salt and pepper
Get your large skillet ready with a couple of tablespoons of vegetable or corn oil.
Cut the potatoes in half, lengthwise. Then cut those up in 1/4″ slices. Place the potato slices in the skillet and cook over medium heat, tossing them around for a few minutes. Add the onion slices and add about 1/4 cup water. Cover the skillet. (this is to help the potatoes cook faster) You dont want your potatoes to be mushy, so watch them.
In the meantime, slice up the sausage in 1/4″ slices. Remove the lid from the skillet and add the sausage and green beans. Give everything a good toss together. You may have to add a bit more oil if things are sticking. I like to turn the heat on medium high so that thing get a bit brown. Serve.
