You can play around with this recipe. Just keep it in the spirit of the original recipe. You want to celebrate that smoky sweet flavor.
Three Things you MUST have:
- Smoked Sausage
- Dry Smoked sweet seasoning
- If you are out of fresh onions and garlic, use dehydrated garlic and onion powders in a pinch. But fresh is best for texture and flavor.
- I most often use smoked Chicken Sausage. Any smoked sausage will work well with this recipe if it gets along with potatoes. One of my personal favorites is Aidells Smoked Chicken Apple Sausage. You can find it at most grocery stores.
- If you have a different potato variety on hand feel free to use them. Just be sure to cut large potatoes into one inch cubes or smaller so they cook fast enough to brown well and get tender.
- You can choose a more robust pepper presence if you like. Roasting peppers like poblanos are great in this recipe. Hotter Jalapeños are great too if you like them. However, sweet peppers are tasty and most everyone will eat them.
- I use a smoky sweet dry seasoning to enhance this recipe. My favorites are Sweet Mesquite Seasonings from Costco, or McCormicks Smoke House Maple.
You may have a personal favorite smoky sweet seasoning blend right in your cupboard. I’d love to know if you have your own favorite sweet smoky seasonings or a homemade recipe for a similar seasoning mix you would like to share in the comments.
The recipe is simple with only a few peppers, onion and garlic added for flavor. However, you can add carrots or whatever vegetable you have that pairs well with smoked sausage and potatoes.
I do NOT recommend broccoli or cauliflower. They are just wrong for this recipe.
This keeps your dinner simple and the mess all in one skillet.
