Here are some tips to enhance your Smoked Sausage Skillet:

  1. Prep Ahead: If you’re short on time during the week, you can prep the ingredients in advance. Cube the potatoes and slice the sausage and onion ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to cook.
  2. Variety of Vegetables: While the recipe calls for corn and green beans, feel free to switch it up with other vegetables you have on hand or prefer. Bell peppers, peas, carrots, or broccoli would all be great additions to add more color and flavor to your skillet.
  3. Add Fresh Herbs: Consider adding fresh herbs like parsley, thyme, or rosemary to the skillet just before serving for an extra burst of freshness and flavor.
  4. Spice it Up: Experiment with different spice blends or hot sauces to kick up the heat in your skillet. Cajun seasoning, chili powder, or red pepper flakes can add a nice spicy kick to the dish.
  5. Cheese Topping: For an indulgent twist, sprinkle some shredded cheese over the skillet during the last few minutes of cooking. Let it melt and get bubbly before serving for an extra cheesy finish.
  6. Serve with a Side: While the skillet is delicious on its own, you can serve it with a side of crusty bread, rice, or a simple green salad to round out the meal and make it even more satisfying.
  7. Make it a Breakfast Dish: This skillet is versatile enough to be enjoyed for breakfast too! Simply top it with fried or poached eggs and serve with toast or biscuits for a hearty morning meal.
  8. Leftover Remix: If you have any leftovers, consider using them to make breakfast burritos, quesadillas, or adding them to omelets for a quick and easy meal the next day.
