  • 1 pound small gold potatoes (such as Potato Inspirations® Honey Gold® potatoes)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 (12-ounce) package fully-cooked smoked beef sausage, sliced 1/2-inch thick

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced vertically

  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced vertically

  • 1 red onion, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

  • 1 golden delicious apple - peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/2 cup frozen petite peas

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until fork tender, 10-12 minutes; drain.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir smoked sausage in skillet until browned on both sides, about 3 minutes. Remove sausage from skillet to a paper towel-lined plate; leave drippings in pan.

  3. Quarter the potatoes. Cook and stir potatoes, red pepper, green pepper, onion, and apple in the skillet until potatoes are starting to brown, 8 to 10 minutes; add oil as needed. Stir in garlic; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  4. Return sausage to the skillet, stir in peas and thyme, and cook until peas are heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; garnish with chopped parsley.

Cook's Notes:

Feel free to use other potatoes. I like the gold because they hold their shape, and there’s no peeling involved.

A firm apple like Granny Smith would be a good substitute for the Golden Delicious.
