How To Make farmer’s sausage skillet

  • 1
    Using a fork, poke potatoes a few times and transfer them to the microwave; process on High for 4 minutes. Flip them and process again for 4 minutes.
  • 2
    Carefully transfer them to a cutting board and allow them to cool off before handling. Cube them in small pieces and set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and when hot, add sausage. Sauté until brown, 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • 5
    In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium and add onions; season with salt. Sauté for 2 minutes.
  • 6
    Add red and green peppers; sauté for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and butter and season with freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • 7
    Return sausage back to the skillet including potato cubes; mix to combine.
  • 8
    Evenly spoon the mixture between 2 8-inch cast iron skillets and top with both cheeses.
  • 9
    Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the cheeses are melted and the top is golden brown.
