One thing I do as an adult, is I take the recipes my mom would make, and I make it my own. Weather thats taking something out or adding to it, I just play with it. A lot of times it was simple dinners as my mom and dad worked and neither of them were too excited about cooking dinner for the family after working a long day. One thing I remember quite well, because as a kid, I always was not a fan of the sausage part, was her sausage and potato skillet. It was very simple, just cubed potatoes fried up, and then some kielbasa sausage thrown in at the very end. I always found that it was spicy when it was cooked, so my mom would leave some of the kielbasa cold for me because I thought it was to die for that way.

So the other day, I found that same kielbasa in my fridge, and I had thought of a spice combo for the potatoes that sounded delicious! So I figured it was time to make this recipe, mine. I didnโ€™t have the nifty chopper she does to cut them all the same size though, so I just cut them as best as I could, put them in a bowl and covered with oil to help the seasoning stick, and then put salt, pepper garlic and onion powder, and then put some crushed garlic over it all. And put it in the pan. While the potatoes were cooking, I cut up the rest of my ingredients. The Peppercinis and Sausage. I would have put onions in it, but I had ran out the day before.

The Ingredients are:

  • 1 Package of kelbasa sausage
  • 3-4 Peppercinis
  • 5-6 Potatoes (cubed)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Poweder
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic (Minced)
  • Oil

The potatoes obviously take longer to cook, and once you see them browning, is when I threw in the peppercinis. Personally, I cut them and removed the seeds because my daughter and I arenโ€™t that big of a fan when it comes to spice, but you can easily leave them in for a little extra heat. Or even use a spicier pepper if you so desire. I let the peppers and potatoes cook for an additional, 1-2 minutes before I threw in the sausage. If your my husband, serve in a bowl with mustard, Sauerkraut, and horseradish, and devour.
