SausageSkilletOne of the most asked questions I get from my How I Feed a Family of 6 for $100 a Week is “What recipes do you use?”

This beautiful and delicious recipe for Sausage Skillet Meal is a crowd pleaser around here. Not only is it yummy, but it is colorful, quick, and a one dish meal. Plus, it is easy to add onto in order to make it stretch farther. You can go cheap or exchange ingredients as needed for a more elevated taste.

Ingredients and Cost:

CheapestMore Expensive
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil – $.052 Tbsp Olive Oil or Coconut Oil – $.65
1/2 Hillshire Farm Sausage Link – $1.491 Hillshire Farm Sausage Link – $2.98
6 large Russet Potatoes – $1.008-9 Red Potatoes – $1.99
1/2 Yellow Onion – $.391/2 Yellow Onion – $.39
1 Green Pepper – $.501 Green Pepper – $.50
Cost About – $3.43Cost About – $6.51

 

This feeds a family of 6 easily. To make this stretch farther, I just add a few more potatoes and onions. You can easily double the amount of potatoes to this meal and have enough to go around for a larger family. In the picture to the right, this is the more expensive version, which you can see may be a little heavy on the sausage for your tastes.

Directions:

  1. Place the 2 Tbsp of chosen oil into the electric skillet.
  2. Set skillet onto about 350 degrees.
  3. Cut the potatoes into desired size. I prefer slicing them in order for them to cook faster. Put into the skillet. The potatoes take the longest to cook.
  4. Slice 1/2 of onion into rings and then either dice of leave them in larger quarter-ring slices as preferred. Add to the skillet.
  5. Dice green pepper into the desired sizes. Add to the Skillet.
  6. While the vegetables are cooking, begin slicing the sausage link. I prefer 1/4 thick slices, which I then half for the small mouths in our home. Add to the Skillet.
  7. Cover and cook until the sausage is browned and the potatoes are cooked. Stir occasionally.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste.
