Rustic Sausage and Potato Skillet

Rustic Sausage and Potato Skillet

This Rustic Sausage and Potato Skillet is the simple, hearty one-pot meal your family will love year-round. I absolutely love one-pot meals (let’s hear it for less dishes!) and this one is great because the steps really couldn’t be easier. This comforting meal is super filling with great smoky flavor from the bacon and sausage and a little sweetness from the carrots. I used a colorful medley of fingerling potatoes, but you can substitute other potatoes depending on what you have available. You’ll never believe a satisfying serving of this Rustic Sausage and Potato Skillet is just 277 calories or 7 Weight Watchers SmartPoints!

Rustic Sausage and Potato Skillet

Yield: 6 (1 1/3 cups) servings

Ingredients:

  • 6 strips center cut bacon, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon reserved bacon grease
  • 1 tablespoon light butter (I used Land O’Lakes)
  • 24 oz potatoes, thinly sliced (I used fingerling potatoes)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 3 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 14 oz pre-cooked smoked turkey sausage, sliced diagonally (I used Hillshire Farm, but Jennie-O and other brands also sell this)

Directions:

  1. Place the chopped bacon pieces in a large saute pan or walled skillet and bring to medium-high heat. Cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon pieces to a stack of paper towels to drain. Discard all but one tablespoon of the bacon grease. Return that tablespoon of grease to the pan and add the tablespoon of butter. Reduce the heat to medium and when the butter is melted, add the potatoes, broccoli, carrots and onions. Stir to coat the ingredients and cover the pan. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring every 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove the lid and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the sliced sausage and stir to combine. Replace the lid and cook for an additional 10 minutes, again stirring every two minutes or so. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the top and serve.

    This came along just in time as we were in a rut with our regular rotation. It appealed to me because it reminded me of a sausage and potato thing my mom used to make when I was a kid, but much better for you. My husband thought he wouldn’t like it because there wasn’t a sauce or cheese or anything but we both found it really tasty and easy to throw together on a week night. Thanks for posting another good one just when we needed it!

    Emily,
    I was wondering if you could use any kind of potato? Not sure if the stores around me sell fingerling potatoes. I was thinking about using Yukon gold and wondered if that would alter the points on the recipe?

    • Emily Bites replied: — March 11th, 2017 @ 11:06 am

      You can definitely use a different type of potato. I haven’t calculated the recipe using another kind but I highly doubt the points would change. I hope you love it!

    Made this tonight. Delicious. I was thinking of adding mushrooms next time because I love them. I was also thinking that a half portion with a poached egg on top would make a super filling and delicious skillet style breakfast.

    Can I ask something really stupid? I’ve never cooked bacon in a pan before (I’m lazy and do microwave or oven), so do you not use any oil or butter?

    • Emily Bites replied: — March 18th, 2017 @ 4:12 pm

      Haha, no need for additional fat, the bacon will make its own!
