Smoked Sausage, Green Beans & Potato Skillet

"This is one of my favorites, and even the ex-DH loves it! I got this recipe from the back of a Del Monte veggie can! It's been a keeper in my family, and truly tastes good--especially if you like smoked sausage! YUM!"

    I have made this numerous times..always good! I have also fried bacon with the sausage...then put in the slower cooker with flavored diced tomatoes with spainish rice and <br/>all the other goodies then go play for the day.

    This was so quick to put together for supper and very good. I used Eckrich smoked sausage with the skin, petite diced tomatoes, and colby monterey jack cheese. We are still wimps when it comes to hot flavors so I added about 4 or 5 drops of hot sauce. Used Minute Rice so the rice was done quickly also. Stirred the cheese in with the sausage and vege's than served on top of the rice. Perfect for a chilly evening and filling! Made and reviewed for Stacy's cookathon...will miss you!

    This great dish is full on flavor is is very simple to prepare. I only used 1 teaspoon of Frank's hot sauce which worked out fine for us. Served over rice and we had a wonderful and satisfying meal. Thanks for sharing, Stacky5LRC.


Editor's Note: Sadly Stacky5 passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008. Hi! My name is Stacy, and I'm a single Mom who works full-time with 4 kids ranging from ages 9 to 21, a brand new granddaughter named Faith, and a cat named Pubert (we call him Pube) who is also my kid... That's his photo as my icon. Oh, and a new kitten that the kids named "KeeKee" but who I call Little Kitteh. I love them with all my heart! Even though I don't have my parents anymore, their presence is always felt and their love has resonated in my life, even after all this time. You'll find a lot of my posted recipes that refer to "Jolean" --- and that's my Mom. :) I sure do miss her... I love music, especially 70's music, cats, incense & lavalights, candles, and I love to play guitar. I've been called an old "hippie chick," and I don't mind that label in the least. I also love to try other people's recipes and find ones that remind me of my Mother, and those precious memories that I had growing up in a household with such a wonderfully comforting cook...I work full-time in a real estate office as an office administrator. I came to this site looking for recipes that were tried and true. I stayed at this site because I found people who were kind, loving, caring and shared the same interest that I do --- food and cooking. I've saved a lifetime of recipes and learned so much about cooking and ingredients that I actually feel proud of my cooking. I bet my Mom looks down on me with pride every time I cook a new recipe from RecipeZaar, and I bet my Dad cracks up every time he sees me photographing what I've cooked! My daughters have actually gotten into the act, too, and are quite versed in searching for recipes and answers here on Zaar. Makes me proud to be their Mom. RecipeZaar isn't just a "website." It's a lifestyle. And some of the friends I've made here are LIFELONG friends to me --- and in my estimation, those types of people are a rare thing to find in this world. :) P.S. Pube says, "Hello everybody!" ;) <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href="¤t=craftykookaburras.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
