If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have many meals that I pretty much just throw together. Meals where I survey my kitchen and its inventory, and come up with something that uses ingredients up while making a nice combination. This is one of them.
I’ve been raving about Trader Joe’s chicken sausage a lot – this is another use for the andouille that I used in my paella. It’s a quick and easy dish where ingredients can be substituted based on what you have. You can use any kind of sausage, add peppers, use sweet potatoes instead of white, add beans, or broccoli rabe – the sky’s the limit!
Skillet Sausage & Potatoes
4 links chicken andouille sausage (Trader Joe’s), cut into bite size chunks
3 small potatoes, sliced in thin rounds
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 scallion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
Heat oil in a large skillet, add onion, and cook until translucent. Add sausage and potatoes, followed by seasonings. Cook until meat is hot and potatoes are tender. At the last minute, add scallion and toss through over the heat for about 30 seconds.
