Sausage Potato Supper

One Saturday night a few years ago, I came up with this dish on the spur of the moment. It was dinnertime, and I had to use what I had on hand. It's been a hit with my family ever since. —Nancy Russell, Englewood, Colorado

    This is a good basic recipe to start with. I added more garlic salt and pepper, Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle, and Tajin. Also added chicken, fresh mushrooms, onion, and a yellow squash. It was delicious!

    I frequently make a version of this very versatile recipe, using whatever I have on hand. I usually have German brats or Italian sausage, which I brown and then slice. Veggies vary, depending on what's in the fridge needing to be used. I often add thick-sliced onion, potatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers, fresh string beans or asparagus, and sometimes a jar of rinsed/drained sauerkraut. I don't cook the potatoes separately. I just add a little broth or water to the pan and let it simmer, covered, until everything is cooked and tender. Quick-cooking veggies are added during the last 10 minutes. Regardless of the variation, it's always an easy, delicious one-pot meal..

    My husband who is a much better cook than me moaned with satisfaction at this meal! Like the author, I used what I had. I did cook potatoes in a bit of chicken broth mixed with water. I used yellow squash, potatoes, sweet onion, banana pepper, jalapeño pepper, roasted red pepper, fresh thyme and oregano. After potatoes boiled a while, I dumped them along with the broth into the pan with the other ingredients. It made a very nice addition to the meal. It looked and smelled amazing! Everything but the mild Italian sausage and potatoes was from my garden. Will definitely make this again.

    This is a great and easy recipe. I did not have red potatoes, so I used russet potatoes, but I followed the recipe and it worked great. It was delicious and my husband loved it.

    This is so great it is in my regular rotation, I lighten it up sometimes by using a turkey sausage. Great flavor especially by using fresh garlic instead of garlic powder or salt.

    Nice combo. I always add some onion, though.
