Course: Main Course, Side Dish
Cuisine: Southern/ Soul Food
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


5-6 medium russet potatoes washed, peeled, and sliced
1 large yellow onion sliced
1 large green bell pepper sliced
1 lb smoked sausage sliced
1/2 cup vegetable oil maybe a tad less than 1/2 cup
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup chicken broth


Start off by washing, then peeling the potatoes.
Next slice the potatoes in even slices (so that they can cook evenly!)
Place the peeled & sliced potatoes in a large bowl with water to prevent the potatoes from browning, then dice up the other ingredients.
Pour the vegetable oil into a large skillet, and heat the oil over medium heat.
Add in the sliced smoked sausage, and cook until browned, then remove from the pan.
Now drain, and pat dries the potatoes, then add the potatoes into the hot oil, and fry.
Once the potatoes start to get nice and tender, add in the peppers and onions.
Sprinkle in the salt, pepper, and garlic powders.
Pour in the chicken broth, and fold the ingredients.
Toss the smoked sausage back into the pan, and combine the ingredients.
Cook until everything is nice and tender, and the broth is absorbed by the potatoes.

Serve and enjoy!
