Skillet Italian Sausage and Potatoes

Fry up a skillet of goodness with Italian sausage, potatoes and red bell peppers. Everything is cooked in this one pan with only a 10 minute prep work and an easy clean-up.


1 1/2 lbs small baby Klondike potatoes, quartered
1 yellow onion, minced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 pkg Italian sausage
4 tablespoons olive oil or ghee
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup vegetable stock
1 teaspoon sriracha (optional)
Chopped parsley, garnish
Grated Parmesan, garnish


In a large cast-iron skillet heat 3 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. When shimmering add the Klondike potatoes and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sauté until golden and fork tender, about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a plate and set aside. (You can boil the potatoes 8 minutes reducing the cooking time in the skillet to 6-8 minutes ensuring a golden crust on the potatoes).

In the same skillet with the remaining tablespoon olive oil brown the Italian sausage for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, red bell pepper, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, to taste. Cook 2-3 minutes, until vegetables softened. Deglaze with the stock and stir in the sriracha, if using. Coat the vegetables and sausage with the stock. Add the potatoes back into the skillet and stir to mix everything together to reheat potatoes. Top with freshly chopped parsley and grated Parmesan. Serve immediately.
