One 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:
|2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil – $.05||2 Tbsp Olive Oil or Coconut Oil – $.65|
|1/2 Hillshire Farm Sausage Link – $1.49||1 Hillshire Farm Sausage Link – $2.98|
|6 large Russet Potatoes – $1.00||8-9 Red Potatoes – $1.99|
|1/2 Yellow Onion – $.39||1/2 Yellow Onion – $.39|
|1 Green Pepper – $.50||1 Green Pepper – $.50|
|Cost About – $3.43||Cost 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.
- Place the 2 Tbsp of chosen oil into the electric skillet.
- Set skillet onto about 350 degrees.
- 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.
- 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.
- Dice green pepper into the desired sizes. Add to the Skillet.
- 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.
- Cover and cook until the sausage is browned and the potatoes are cooked. Stir occasionally.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
