Skillet Red Potatoes with Smoked Sausage

Andy Anderson !


This is a very simple dish to assemble, and it has two things going for it:

1: It has great presentation value at your table.
2: It tastes amazing… and I mean REALLY amazing.

If you have a small cast-iron skillet, this would be the perfect time to pull it out and use it. It gives the dish a rather rustic/charming appearance. Don’t forget: We eat first with our eyes.

I promise you won’t have any leftovers, if you make this for your next party.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
