smoked sausage with peppers, onions and potatoes
This was a great meal that everyone in my family enjoyed (that's because my husband wasn't home; he's not a fan of this kind of sausage). The kids loved the sausage and potatoes (and of course the rolls we served this with) and I loved everything.
smoked sausage with peppers, onions and potatoes (adapted from America's Test Kitchen)
2 packages Foster Farms turkey smoked sausage, sliced
1 pound red potatoes, cut into wedges
salt and pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup to 1 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Brown sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little water to keep the sausages from burning on the bottom. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in microwave-safe bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave on high until potatoes begin to soften, 5 to 7 minutes.
In the skillet you cooked the sausages in, add bell peppers and onion and heat until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and garlic and cook until fragrant. Stir in broth and oregano and stir to combine. Nestle sausages and potatoes in vegetables, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until nice and hot, 10-12 minutes. Stir in vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Serve with rolls.
What I have to say- you may not need to cook 2 packages of smoked sausage. My kids LOVE it so to make sure I get some I have to cook up 2 packages.
