Hearty Potato and Sausage Skillet Recipe


  • 1½ pounds russet potatoes, diced into 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 pound sliced smoked sausage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ large red bell pepper
  • ½ large green bell pepper
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Shredded parmesan cheese, for garnish


Step 1: Saute the diced onion in a large pan with a tablespoon of butter over medium heat until translucent.

Step 2: Cook the onion until soft, then set it aside.

Step 3: In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until the butter is melted. Add the diced potatoes, seasoned salt, Italian seasoning, and black pepper.

Step 4: Cover and simmer, turning occasionally, for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are somewhat softened.

Step 5: After 15 minutes, add the sliced sausage to the skillet and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until the potatoes are fully cooked and the sausage is heated through. In another skillet, sauté the diced peppers until soft and crisp.

Step 6: Once everything is cooked, combine the cooked onions, peppers, and sausage with the potatoes in the skillet.

Step 7: If desired, sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese over the top before serving.


  • To save time, you can dice the potatoes and onions in advance and store them in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Use a non-stick skillet to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking.
  • Feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite vegetables or spices.
