Ingredients:

  • The Starchy Base:

    • 1 ½ Pounds Russet Potatoes - Diced into ½ inch cubes, these potatoes cook evenly and become tender and flavorful.
  • The Smoky Star:

    • 1 Pound Sliced Smoked Sausage - Choose your favorite smoked sausage, like kielbasa or andouille, for a rich and smoky flavor.
  • The Flavorful Trio:

    • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil - Provides a healthy cooking fat and helps to crisp up the potatoes and vegetables.
    • ½ Tsp Seasoned Salt - A blend of spices that adds a savory base to the dish.
    • ½ Tsp Italian Seasoning - Aromatic herbs like oregano, basil, and thyme add a touch of Italian flair.
  • The Colorful Companions:

    • ½ Large Red Bell Pepper, Diced - Offers a vibrant red color and a touch of sweetness.
    • ½ Large Green Bell Pepper, Diced - Provides a beautiful contrast in color and a slightly grassy flavor.
    • Small Diced Onion - Adds a base of savory flavor and cooks down to a soft texture.
  • The Finishing Touches:

    • Black Pepper to Taste - Freshly ground black pepper adds a touch of heat and depth of flavor.
    • Shredded Parmesan Cheese (Optional) - A sprinkle of parmesan cheese adds a salty and nutty finish to the dish.

Step-by-Step Guide to Skillet Symphony:

  1. Sautéing the Base: In a large pan or skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until it becomes translucent and softened. Remove the onions from the pan and set them aside.

  2. Building the Potato Base: In the same skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil with the melted butter. Add the diced potatoes, seasoned salt, Italian seasoning, and black pepper. Stir to coat the potatoes evenly.

  3. Simmering to Tenderness: Cover the pan and simmer the potatoes, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. This allows the potatoes to soften and cook through.

  4. Adding the Sausage: After 15 minutes, add the sliced smoked sausage to the pan with the potatoes. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, or until the sausage is heated through.

  5. Bringing in the Colors: While the sausage cooks, add the diced red and green bell peppers to a separate skillet. Sauté the peppers until they are softened but still have a slight crispness.

  6. The Grand Finale: Combine the cooked and seasoned potatoes and sausage with the sautéed peppers and onions in your main skillet. Stir everything together to combine the flavors.

  7. A Cheesy Finish (Optional): If desired, sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese over the top of the dish for a salty and nutty finish.

  8. Serve and Savor: Serve your skillet symphony hot and enjoy the delicious combination of tender potatoes, smoky sausage, and vibrant bell peppers.
