Nothing Fancy Smoked Sausage Skillet

Confession. Cooking isn’t always a big deal. Sometimes, especially on a weeknight, you just want to come home, throw something together and put your feet up. Our Nothing Fancy Smoked Sausage Skillet is the answer for those nights.

Don’t get me wrong, easy can still taste amazing!  Use your favorite smoked sausage or kielbasa, and cut into bite size pieces. (If you leave them in big pieces, the meal won’t stretch as far because everyone tries to pick out all of the sausage….or is that just my family?)

Nothing Fancy Smoked Sausage Skillet

We buy pre-cooked smoked sausage when it is on sale. Great item to freeze, because it thaws quickly and works in so many meals (this, gumbo, with breakfast, in chili, in bbq sauce as a party appetizer, etc.)

It is perfect for creating smoked sausage skillet recipes like this one.

Cook in oil with garlic and onions until yummy and brown. The browner you can get them (not burnt) the better the flavor. Our skillet of choice…the trusty cast-iron skillet.

 

Our Nothing Fancy Smoked Sausage Skillet Recipe is that meal. Easy and delicious. Bonus: fast clean up!

 

Stir in corn, beans, tomatoes, seasonings and simmer. You can switch out veggies based on what you have on hand. We used beans from our Essential Slow Cooker Beans recipe.  I have also made this with Ro-Tel intead of tomatoes, but adjust your spices to taste.

The tomato juice will get the flavor off the bottom of the cast iron skillet. If you think you need more liquid, add 1/4 cup of hot water or chicken broth.
