Ingredients

  • 1 pound (454g) Microwave/Steam-able baby yellow potatoes Note 1
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, separated
  • 1 cup (135g) diced yellow onion
  • 1 cup (140g) frozen corn
  • 1 tbsp (15g) minced garlic
  • 1 pkg (14 oz.; 396g) smoked sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces Note 2
  • 2 tbsp (31g) lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon each: dijon mustard, dried thyme, honey
  • 3 cups (79g) baby spinach
  • 1 cup (74g) grated sharp cheddar or Gouda Cheese

Instructions

  • POTATOES: Microwave potatoes according to package directions until tender enough to easily dice. Set aside, let slightly cool, and dice into small 1/2-inch pieces (no need to peel).
  • SAUSAGE: Meanwhile, add 1 tablespoon (13g) oil to a large skillet. Once hot, add in the onion. Saute, stirring occasionally for 3-4 minutes. Add in the sliced sausage and saute for another 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add in the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • SAUCE: Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil (43g), lemon juice, dijon, thyme, honey, salt & pepper to taste (I add 1/2 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp pepper). Vigorously whisk until emulsified.
  • CORN & POTATOES: Add diced potatoes and frozen corn to the skillet. Stir to incorporate and then pour in the sauce, using a spatula to scrape every bit of it from the bowl into skillet. Stir until sauce has incorporated and veggies are glossy, about 1 minute. Add in the spinach (give it a quick coarse chop first IF desired) and stir until just wilted, about 1-2 more minutes. Turn off the heat and sprinkle cheese on top. Cover pot and let cheese melt, about 3-5 minutes. Remove lid and gently mix the cheese in. Serve immediately.

Notes

Note 1: We use steamable potatoes for this recipe! 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.
