Home-Style Sausage and Potato Skillet
Serves 4
Total Time: 30 Minutes

  • 3/4 pound bulk light turkey and pork sausage
  • 1 large or 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 pounds red potatoes (about 12 medium), unpeeled, very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Heat nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Drain pan, and remove sausage to plate and set aside.

Add onions; cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Gently stir in cooked sausage and remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover tightly and cook 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until potatoes are tender.

Remove from heat; gently stir mixture. Let stand covered 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend and light sauce to form.

The Verdict
3.5/5. We liked this very much, but there need to be additions to make this great! Garlic and mushrooms would definitely add to this dish. On the Pillsbury website, another posted mentioned adding cayenne pepper instead of paprika, which might work too. We're also thinking of seasoning with teriyaki next time. 
The meat the potato ratio also needs to be adjusted. There was almost too much potato to the amount of meat. I would make them equal parts in the future.
