  • 5-6 medium russet potatoes washed, peeled, and sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 lb smoked sausage sliced
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil maybe a tad less than 1/2 cup
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth


  • Start off by washing, then peeling the potatoes.
  • Next slice the potatoes in even slices (so that they can cook evenly!)
  • Place the peeled & sliced potatoes in a large bowl with water to prevent the potatoes from browning, then dice up the other ingredients.
  • Pour the vegetable oil in a large skillet, and heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Add in the sliced smoked sausage, and cook until browned, then remove from the pan.
  • Now drain, and pat dry the potatoes, then add in the potatoes into the hot oil, and fry.
  • Once the potatoes start to get nice and tender, add in the peppers and onions.
  • Sprinkle in the salt, pepper, and garlic powders.
  • Pour in the chicken broth, and fold the ingredients.
  • Toss the smoked sausage back into the pan, and combine the ingredients.
  • Cook until everything is nice and tender, and the broth is absorbed by the potatoes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
