Cheesy Smoked Sausage Skillet

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound russet potatoes (approximately one large potato)
  • 1 cup diced onion, ½ inch dice (approximately one medium onion)
  • 1 cup diced green bell pepper, 1 inch dice (approximately one medium pepper)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 12-ounce package Hillshire Farm Beef Polska Kielbasa, cut into 1-inch half circles
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • ¼ pound sliced yellow American cheese, diced
  • ¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Small pinch of freshly ground nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Peel and cut potatoes into one-inch dice and place in a bowl of water. Let sit in the water until the other ingredients are prepped and you are ready to cook.
  2. In a cast iron skillet, melt two tablespoons of the butter with the olive oil over medium high heat.
  3. Drain the potatoes, then add to the skillet along with the diced onions. Cover and cook for five minutes.
  4. While potatoes are cooking, place milk, American and cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, mustard and nutmeg in a microwave-safe container and microwave for 90 seconds on high. Whisk the mixture together and microwave again just until the cheese melts and a cheese sauce is formed. Remove from the microwave. Hold for later.
  5. Add the remaining butter and green pepper to the potato mixture in the skillet and turn and mix using a spatula. Cook for 8 minutes turning occasionally with the spatula, or until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Add the smoked sausage, cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook for two minutes covered and turn off the heat under the skillet. Pour cheese sauce into the skillet and stir to coat. Serve immediately.
