When it comes to smoked sausage, there are many different types to choose from. For this dish, we recommend smoked pork or beef sausage. However, you could also use smoked turkey sausage if you prefer. Whichever type of sausage you choose, make sure that it is fully cooked before adding it to the skillet.

If you can’t find smoked sausage, you can also use regular sausage. Just cook it in a smoked paprika-infused oil before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. This will give the sausage a smoked flavor without having to actually smoke it.

What to Serve with Smoked Sausage and Potatoes

When it comes to what to serve with smoked sausage and potatoes, there are plenty of delicious options. If you want something on the lighter side, a simple green salad goes well with this dish. For something heartier, some crusty bread or a side of rice would be perfect.

And if you’re looking for something really indulgent, why not top your smoked sausage and potatoes with a dollop of sour cream or some shredded cheese? No matter what you choose to serve with it, this dish is sure to please.

What is the best type of potatoes to use for this recipe?

There are multiple types of potatoes that could work for this recipe, but some may be better than others. For instance, Yukon gold potatoes or Russet potatoes might make good choices because they are relatively easy to find and tend to be fairly affordable. However, feel free to experiment with different kinds of potatoes to see what you like best.

Can this recipe be made in the Slow cooker?

Yes, this recipe can be made in a slow cooker. Just brown the sausage and potatoes on the stove first, then add them to the slow cooker with the remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

How do you slice the smoked sausage?

When slicing smoked sausage, it is important to first cook the sausage. This will help to ensure that the sausage is cooked all the way through and also prevent the risk of foodborne illness.

Once the sausage is cooked, you can then slice it into thin pieces. When doing so, be sure to use a sharp knife to get clean cuts. You can also cut the smoked sausage into thicker pieces if desired.
