This Sausage Green Bean and Potato Skillet is a delicious one pan dinner that you can have on the table in 30 minutes. This dish combines hearty smoked sausage, creamy potatoes, peppers, onions, and just the right amount of spice for a filling, flavorful meal.
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.
