This is the best time of year…and the busiest. All our investment of time and hard work, in garden planning, plotting, and seed sowing is rewarding us with the highest quality food! We eat so well this time of year, and so cheap!
I love that the produce itself sets the menu. I know this week corn, potatoes and peppers are coming on. Zucchini is still going strong, as are blackberries. Tomatoes are ripe and cucumbers are bursting through my refrigerator side walls! Potato sausage stir fry is the perfect recipe for garden produce or whatever veggies you have in your fridge that fry well!

Dave bought us a big freezer today. It’s beautiful! Now I’m kicking into high gear. Loading that lovely, cold monster is kitchen business. LOTS of it!
Our First Potato Tower Experience:
Dave brought a bowl of gorgeous red potatoes out of our potato towers this morning. Our first harvest from potato towers, by the way. The towers worked beautifully! We hadn’t tried the tower approach to growing potatoes. Dave was curious so he erected three of them by the greenhouse. What a garden space saver! We found them a very convenient way to grow our tubers. The potatoes turned out wonderfully.
These are the three towers Dave put up this year. The bottom of the towers are growing potatoes as lovely as the top layer. Such an easy way to grow a crop of spuds!
Fast Forward to 2016. This year we grew potatoes in wire towers again and barrels. Learn how here!
Back to our meal…all that fresh garden bounty said potato sausage stir fry! This meal is Low carb, high protein, and filling. Hope you love this dinner as much as we do. Leftovers? Nope! So… you get the ‘before’ picture. Lovely fried baby red potatoes with a little brown crunchiness companions perfectly with caramelized onions, sweet peppers and low-fat, delicious pre-cooked chicken sausage. Fried in a bit of flavorful, healthy coconut oil. YUM!!
Recipe Notes for Potato Sausage Stir Fry:
I’m using baby red potatoes , fresh out of the garden here, in chunks. If you are using larger, older, tougher potatoes, especially russet or any large potato; cut the potato into one-quarter to one-half inch slices and put them into the skillet with the coconut oil before the onions and garlic go in. Cook the potatoes until slightly brown and add in the onions and garlic about 2 minutes before the pre-cooked sausage and parsley go in.
You’ll notice I use Sweet Mesquite Seasonings from Costco (affiliate link). I LOVE this seasoning mix and highly recommend it if you have a Costco membership. Kirkland Sweet Mesquite seasoning is gluten free. Pick up a jar and use this seasoning for this recipe (and many others on this blog).
IF you don’t have a Costco membership, McCormicks Mesquite Seasoning (affiliate link) is available in any grocery store in jars or packets and should work as an acceptable substitute. I do not know if it is gluten free.
As a last resort, click on the affiliate link for the sweet Mesquite and look at the ingredients. That will give you the nuts and bolts of the flavors in this mix. You may have what you need for it right in your cupboard! I’d love to know if you have your own favorite Mesquite seasonings or a homemade recipe for a similar seasoning mix you would like to share in the comments. I’ve never found one I prefer to Kirkland brand.
