  • 12" Skillet


  • 14oz Package Kielbasa any fully cooked sausage
  • ½ Yellow Onion diced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper diced
  • 1 Pound Creamer Potatoes cubed
  • ½ Pound Green Beans cleaned, and halved
  • 2 Teaspoons Paprika
  • 2 Teaspoons Granulated Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Wash potatoes and cut into one inch pieces. Depending on what size creamer potato you bought, this could be halves, quarters, or eighths.
  • Place them in a microwave safe bowl, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave for 3-4 minutes. They will not be completely cooked through, but will cook on the stovetop much quicker from this point.
  • Next, heat a large skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Slice smoked sausage into rounds and place into the skillet to brown.
  • Then, add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and add the par-cooked potatoes and cleaned green beans.
  • Next, add the diced red bell pepper and diced yellow onion.
  • Season with salt, pepper, paprika, and granulated garlic.
  • Let everything cook together until the potatoes are soft and the onions are translucent. It takes approximately 10 minutes.


  • Cut the sausage at a slight angle to make a larger surface area. 
  • Par-cook the potatoes in the microwave to make sure that they finish cooking at the same time as everything else. 
  • I used a 12” skillet to make this recipe. Make sure you use a large flat pan to have as much cooking area as possible. The more evenly you can spread out the ingredients, the more evenly everything will cook. 
  • You can use a variety of sausage for this dish and get great results. Look for sausage with smooth textures and smoky flavors. 
  • This dish is great as leftovers, and reheats in the microwave without losing the texture or flavor.
