If there is a meal that you can’t make often enough…..this is it. I found the original recipe during an epically long Pinterest browsing session. You know the kind I’m talking about. Its when you have maybe 30 minutes of free time and a cup of coffee so you figure you will look through Pinterest. All of a sudden, it’s 5 hours later. Don’t lie. I know you’ve done it too.
We’ve had this recipe a handful of times and as delicious as it is right out of the oven, it’s even better the next day. I have modified the original recipe slightly. First off, I double it. Second, I add extra onion. Third, I omit the cheddar cheese. The next time I make this I’m going to add a green bell pepper chunked up and some minced garlic (thanks for the suggestion hunny!).
- 1 package of smoked sausage
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
- 5 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch bites
- olive oil
- black pepper
- sweet paprika
- dried thyme
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a large baking dish with foil and coat with a layer of olive oil. Don’t use too little because the potatoes will stick.
- Cut the smoked sausage into bite sized pieces. I find its the best to cut into quarters and then slice.
- Put the sausage, potatoes, and onion in a large bowl.
- Pour a few tablespoons of olive oil on top and use the salt, pepper, paprika, and thyme to taste. (the more thyme the better!) Toss with your hands until everything is coated, adding more oil and spices if needed
- Spread the tossed mixture out in the foil lined baking dish into a single layer.
- Cook for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes until the potatoes are cooked and golden brown.
