If you are looking for a quick recipe during the weeknights when your schedule is busy, try this skillet recipe. It’s a great addition to your weeknight rotation and is very simple and versatile. I was first introduced to the potato skillet years ago when my family visited Silver Dollar City, a theme park in Branson Mo. They have a wide variety of skillets options cooking in outdoor kitchens all day throughout the park in massively enormous cast iron skillets. The smell is incredible! We tried one and have been eating them ever since, it’s one of our “must do’s” when at Silver Dollar City. I started making them myself at home, you can really just add what you like and try different ingredients. I like to use chicken sausage but kielbasa would be great, or just do a veggie skillet to make it more healthy. I also prefer to buy frozen diced potatoes…it saves so much prep time and still tastes great. This recipe is what I typically do for my family:
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 C cubed frozen potatoes
1 sweet potato, cubed
2 TBS McCormick Montreal Chicken seasoning
1 TBS seasoning salt
1 garlic clove, minced
3 chicken sausages, browned in a separate pan (I use Aidells Italian Style)
1/4 C chicken stock
salt and pepper to taste
Add cooking oil to large pan, add red peppers, green peppers and onion. Cook on medium heat until tender. Add the frozen potatoes and sweet potato and continue to cook on medium heat. Add the chicken seasoning, salt and garlic. Let that cook on low while stirring often.
Brown the chicken sausage in a separate pan. Once sausage is browned, add it to vegetable and seasoning mixture. Add chicken stock and salt and pepper to taste, continue to cook on medium heat until potatoes are browned and nice and crisp.
