Easy Peasy Potatoes

Pan frying diced potatoes was the first dish I made really well. It's so easy to put together and you can throw in any type of veggies and/or meats you have to make a nice meal or side dish. I used to make this for breakfast every weekend and then I started eating it for lunch or even as a side with dinner. Eat this on its own, served with scrambled eggs or in burritos or a quesadilla. Great stuff! 

Super easy and great to eat any time of day!

Easy Peasy Potatoes

Yield: 4 servings

  • 4 small potatoes, diced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 tbs garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lb mild Italian sausage (remove casings)
  • 1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced for garnish
  • sour cream, shredded cheese, crushed red peppers, salsa or hot sauce, optional
  1. In large saute pan, heat olive oil over med-high heat. Add 1/2 tbs garlic and diced potatoes and cook for 10-12 mins or till done. Stir occasionally to avoid burning potatoes. Set aside in a bowl and keep warm.
  2. Saute bell pepper, onion, and remaining garlic for 5-8 mins. When done, add to bowl with potatoes and keep warm.
  3. In same pan, cook Italian sausage. When cooked through, add potatoes and veggie mixture back to pan. Saute for another 5-8 mins or until everything is heated through.
  4. Serve with tortillas, eggs, in a burrito or as is. It's great with salsa, too! ENJOY!
