Smoky Mini Potato and Sausage Skillet

Smoky Mini Potato and Sausage Skillet


  • 1 smoked sausage, sliced
  • Half bag (about 1 lb) of frozen mini potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or your favorite blend)
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Seasoning of choice (e.g., garlic powder, paprika, Italian seasoning)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Fresh herbs for garnish (parsley, green onions)


  1. Prepare Ingredients:
    • Slice the smoked sausage into bite-sized pieces.
    • Finely chop the onion.
  2. Sauté Sausage and Onions:
    • In a large skillet, cook the sliced smoked sausage and chopped onion over medium heat until the sausage is browned and the onions are translucent.
  3. Add Mini Potatoes:
    • Add the frozen mini potatoes to the skillet. Stir and cook for a few minutes until the potatoes start to thaw.
  4. Seasoning:
    • Sprinkle your seasoning of choice over the ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir to coat the sausage, onions, and potatoes evenly.
  5. Pour in Milk:
    • Pour the milk evenly over the ingredients in the skillet. The milk will create a creamy sauce as it cooks.
  6. Cover and Simmer:
    • Cover the skillet and let the mixture simmer on medium-high heat for about 15-20 minutes or until the mini potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  7. Add Cheese:
    • Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the skillet. Cover again and let it cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Check for Doneness:
    • Check the tenderness of the mini potatoes with a fork. If they are soft, the Smoky Mini Potato and Sausage Skillet is ready.
  9. Garnish and Serve:
    • Optionally, garnish with fresh herbs like chopped parsley or green onions. Serve hot directly from the skillet.


  • Customize the seasoning based on your family’s taste preferences.
  • This quick and easy skillet meal is not only kid-approved but also budget-friendly. It’s perfect for busy weeknights when you want a delicious and effortless dinner.
