Click here to see all the recipes in the series! Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn This dish does have a bit more chopping involved than most of the recipes in the series, but the lack of dirty dishes (ONE pot!) should make up for some of the chopping involved! 🙂 And with a few other short-cuts, plus minimal ingredients required, you’ll be amazed how quick this smoked sausage, potatoes, & corn dish ends up on your dinner table! This dish is savory with a subtle sweetness from the corn and a delicious tanginess from the dijon sauce we add in. If you enjoy a good dijonnaise with smoked sausage (like in this Cabbage Potatoes and Sausage meal), you’ll love this dish! SHORTCUTS Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn Short-Cuts Grab pre-diced onions. Most grocery stores sell diced yellow onions in the produce section of the store. Alternatively, frozen diced onions are often found by the other frozen veggies and can be used in this recipe. Or, use a food processor to quickly chop an onion. Frozen corn. Instead of slicing fresh corn off the cob or dealing with grabbing a strainer to drain & rinse canned corn, we use frozen corn — easy and tasty! Minced garlic. We love Dorot’s cubes which have crushed garlic that you can keep handy in the freezer and pop into this (and other) recipes when needed. (Check if you local store carries them; they’re typically found with frozen veggies in the grocery store). Another option is to use refrigerated minced garlic in this Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn meal. Steamable potatoes. This is the biggest short-cut of the recipe — we all know how long potatoes can take, but buy grabbing baby golds in a steam-able bag we’re saving loads of time. Not only do these potatoes not have to be peeled, they also don’t need to be boiled or roasted first. Simply throw them in the microwave (according to package directions) and then quickly chop them up for the recipe. The chopping is so much quicker/easier because the potatoes are soft and tender. Let’s Chat Sausage Choose your favorite smoked sausage. We love smoked pork or beef sausage best in this Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn dish. To keep things on the more nutritious side, feel free to use smoked turkey or chicken sausage. As long as it’s pre-cooked (smoked), any sausage should work, so use your favorite here! Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn Tips Grab baby spinach for this dish. There’s a lot of spinach, but it cooks/wilts down quickly! We like using baby spinach so the pieces aren’t overpowering. If you’d like the spinach more evenly dispersed throughout the meal, give it a quick coarse chop. This is optional of course, because “lifesaver” meals and all 🙂 Use a whisk to combine the sauce. The sausage needs to be throughly whisked for the ingredients to emulsify and not separate in the final meal. If you don’t have a whisk, try adding all the ingredients to a small mason jar and shake to combine. The sauce can be made ahead of time, you’ll just want to give it a quick whisk (or shake) before adding into the dish. Add your favorite cheese. We’ve tried this Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn dish with smoked gouda and sharp cheddar cheese — we loved both! It depends on who you asked, but cheddar was most likely the favorite with gouda as a close second! We also tried mozzarella, and felt it didn’t add as much flavor as we liked. STORAGE Smoked Sausage, Potatoes, & Corn Storage This meal is best enjoyed right after being made. It’s not a great candidate for making ahead, storing, or freezing.

Not only do these potatoes not have to be peeled, they also don't need to be boiled or roasted first. Simply throw them in the microwave (according to package directions) and then quickly chop them up for the recipe. I usually microwave for the least amount of time directed on package (4 minutes for the potatoes I buy) and add more time IF needed. Note 2: Any smoked sausage works. We typically use beef or pork smoked sausage (or a combo of the two) for this recipe. Use chicken or turkey sausage for a more nutritious meal.
