Smoked sausage and potato hash is a simple and delicious combination of kielbasa, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and peppers. Cooked in a cast-iron skillet, this is a one-pan meal that is perfect for a weeknight family dinner.
Who doesn’t love a good smoked sausage dish? I mean, I know I do! Sometimes though, I struggle with what to actually make when I pick up kielbasa on my weekly grocery trips.
Kielbasa is inexpensive, delicious, and versatile but for some reason I have always struggled with what to do with it! Other than cooking it on the grill and eating it like a hot dog, I never really put much thought into making a fun and different smoked sausage recipe.
The past week I happened to have some kielbasa in my freezer, and took some time to search through my pantry and see what I can throw together to make a kid-friendly one-pan dinner.
I grabbed some little potatoes, peppers, onions, and cherry tomatoes. These became the foundation for my smoked sausage and potato hash.
Kielbasa and Potato Hash
This is a super easy recipe! You will only need a few ingredients and you are on your way to a delicious one-pan hash!
- Peppers ( any color you want)
- Onion ( I prefer red)
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Minced Garlic
- Salt & Pepper
How to Make Smoked Sausage and Potato Hash
This is a super easy recipe. Y’all know I don’t like to make anything too complicated, and this definitely is a new favorite of mine!
- Start by dicing up your potatoes. Add the diced potatoes to your skillet with some melted butter and let them cook a while alone to soften. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Dice the rest of your veggies; peppers, onions, and tomatoes, and cut up the smoked sausage.
- When the potatoes are starting to soften, add in a tablespoon of minced garlic and kielbasa to the pan.
- After about 5-10 minutes, add in the rest of your veggies to the pan. At this point, you may want to add more butter ( I did).
- Cook until all veggies are soft, about 10-15 more minutes.
You can eat the kielbasa hash as is, or cook up a fried egg to top it with! This is a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
What about leftovers?
This dish would easily feed 6 people, but there are only 4 people in my house. We had a decent amount of leftover sausage hash that kept in the refrigerator for about 3 days. Since I don’t own a microwave, I reheated my leftover hash in the toaster oven for about 7 minutes. It reheated super well and tasted just as good the second time around!
Cooking the Potatoes
A little note about the potatoes, they take much longer to cook so that’s why I start them first. Something else you can do to speed up the process is slightly boil the diced potatoes. Feel free to use whatever variety of potatoes you prefer, but I have found red potatoes and Yukon gold tend to work really well in this recipe.
