Potato magic


What is it about potatoes that makes me feel good?

And when I saw these cute little things in the store, I got two bags. Yes, two.


I didn’t need that “easy recipe on the back” because I already had a good substantial German dish planned for these little guys.

Sausage and Potatoes.

  • 1lb of potatoes, unpeeled, quartered or halved depending on size
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Sliced sausage. I used light smoked sausage. I package.
  • 1/2 cup of chopped red onions
  • 1/2 cup of chopped green onions (scallions to those not in the South)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme

Heat a large deep pan with oil.

Add potatoes and coat. Stir fry on med heat for about 10 minutes until they develop a deep golden color.

Add water, sausage, onions, scallions, and thyme. Stir to mix and turn heat to med-low. Stir occasionally.

Cook until potatoes are done, approximately 20 minutes. Garnish with thyme.

Oh my goodness! I have all of these ingredients and I am going to make this tonight for dinner. There is something so comforting to me about potatoes and sausage. Thank you for posting this recipe.

Those look heavenly. Being German and all, I should probably eat some. And I love the small potatoes 10x more than normal russetts. They have better texture and hold up better in cooking, I think. Thanks for sharing!

I hope you like it! I haven't met a potato or a sausage that I don't like. :)
