Country Fried Potatoes with Smoked Chicken Sausage

Submitted by: FDOODLES

Introduction

MODIFIED 5/3/10 - reduced the fat and changed the sausage to chicken instead of turkey, also used onion powder instead of onions.

Good old-fashioned fried potatoes with sausage & onions. You can make this with less butter and/or oil to lower the calories even further. The smoked turkey sausage is a little high in sodium, but I haven't been able to find any lower in my area.

Ingredients

    1 pkg Hillshire Farm Hardwook Smoked Chicken Sausage
    2 baking potatoes (750 grams)
    Onion Powder
    Black Pepper
    1 Tbsp butter
    1 Tbsp Olive oil

Directions

Wash potatoes, cut into quarters and cook in microwave on high for 8 minutes. While they are cooking, slice the sausage. Heat sausage in large non-stick skillet while potatoes are cooking. When microwave is done, slice potatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Remove sausage from pan and melt the butter over med high heat. When melted, add the olive oil. Butter & oil should be simmering lightly. Add the potatoes to the pan, toss to coat with the butter/oil mixture, add onion powder & black pepper to taste. Add the sausage back to the pan and let cook for 5 minutes without stirring, to crisp the potatoes. Toss or flip the mixture after 5 minutes and let cook on the other side to finish crisping. Very filling, very satisfying.

    Since prepared sausage have a lot of sodium and most times a lot of fat, why not make your own sausage from scratch! Then you can control what's in your sausage with lean ground meat. I made my own out of necessity since I can't get "American" or "Italien" style sausages in Sweden! - 1/9/09

    This was very good. The only thing I can complain about is all the oil and butter. I think next time I am going to try and cut it in half. Thanks for the recipe - 11/17/08

  • I found some cajun chicken sausage at Sunflower Market which was really really good in this recipe. I also used butter flavored cooking spray to crisp the potatoes instead of using the butter and oil to cut down on calories and fat. This was amazing and will be in our regular rotation!!! - 5/17/11
