Sausage, Peppers and Potatoes- A Family Favorite

Sausage, Pepper, Potato Bake Cheap, easy delicious last-minute meal! thoushallnotwhine.com

Being a family of 7 means that there are bound to be some hiccups in our daily plans, which means quick, delicious dinners are a must. There are a few favorites in our family meal routine that we could eat several nights a week and no one would complain. The ingredients for those meals are staples in our home so I know I always have what I need for those “hiccup” meals.

Sausage, peppers and potatoes is one such meal.

I buy our smoked sausage at Sam’s Club. I think its Cavanaugh brand but I’m not sure. It comes in 3lb packages with no fillers, by-products, yucky stuff… etc. In general, smoked sausage comes in the U shape, right? I only use half of the U in our meals, making the meat go a bit further.

In general, the non-Sam’s size packaging is 12-14oz, so we use about 7oz of sausage per meal.

The potatoes are, well, potatoes- regular, run-of-the-mill potatoes from Aldi. I use around 10 potatoes for us.

The frozen pepper mix is from Kroger but I’m sure it is available at other grocery stores. I use about half the bag at a time.

Peppers

I like to chop and sauté the sausage with the pepper mix and some oregano, salt, pepper and olive oil.

The potatoes I slice to about a quarter of an inch thick and boil for 10 minutes or so. If you’re really in a pinch, skip this part and just use some frozen potatoes O’Brien.

I spray a 9×13 with oil and dump in the drained potatoes. Add salt, pepper, oregano and olive oil to taste. Top that with the sautéed sausage and peppers.

Being the cheese lovers we are, we add a bit of cheese to the top.

Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. (YUM!)

This will feed us all (most of us having seconds) for dinner plus enough leftovers for a couple of us to have it for lunch the next day.

Cheep, easy and delicious!

For variety, you can add frozen green beans, asparagus and/or kalamata olives. We’ve tried it all and it’s delish!
