Potatoes & Sausage – Forget What You Know About Wheat(c)

potatoes & sausage

Potatoes and Sausage are a wonderful example of Southern Italian Soul Food.  A simple meal – gratifying and distinctive.  This sumptuously aromatic dish of Potatoes and Sausage is easy to make; the stove does most of the work.  Delicious with a salad for lunch, dinner, even for camping!

1 pound Potatoes (Russet or Red or Yukon or a combination)

½ pound lean gluten free Sweet or Hot Italian Sausage

¾ cup chopped Onion

Salt & Pepper to taste

(optional) Crushed Red Pepper to taste

Chop the onion and set aside.  Quarter the potatoes, slice the quarters in half and set aside.  Prep the Sausage:  Clean and remove the casing by slicing a vertical cut in the sausage from top to bottom.  Discard the casing, separate the meat and place in an ample sized sauté pan to cook for 8 minutes on medium low.



If the meat is lean you may need to add a dash of olive oil, if it is fatty, remove the sausage and drain the fat and then add the onion.  Cook for an additional 5 minutes, add the potatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Toss all of the ingredients to completely combine.  Place a lid on the pan in a slightly ajar position, and cook for 30 minutes, toss every ten minutes during cooking time.


Camping Note:  Create individual foil packets, divide the potatoes and sausage.  Place in ziplock bags or container.  Freeze and then warm up over a fire pit while camping.
