Potato and Sausage Stew

Potato and Sausage Stew: such a great one pot weeknight meal!

Just a few ingredients in one pot, about 30 minutes of your time and voila! You got yourself a delicious Potato and Sausage Stew. A wonderful, quick, and definitely cozy meal.

Every good meal starts with a little sautee of onions and other veggies, right?! Next, add the potatoes, the spices, chicken stock, and sausage slices or cubes and you’re done! Easy as that. Wait until the aroma hits your house too.

I used Smoked Andouille Chicken Sausage from Trader Joe’s for this batch because that’s what I had on hand. Feel free to use any type of sausage you might like for this. It is great with Italian Sausage and ham bits as well. Give it a try with your holiday leftovers. Because leftovers are the bomb!

The Andouille Sausage was nice and spicy.

A hot bowl and the spice equals a great sinus therapy too. Not kidding. It’s not unbearably spicy but, perfectly spicy for this time of the year. If spicy is your thing, you need this. If not, make it without spicy sausage and enjoy the perfectly cooked potatoes in delicious broth.

The starch from the potatoes gives the finished meal a great consistency. Truthfully, I love this more for leftovers than I actually do when the recipe is freshly made. There’s something about that starch and sausage the next day. Yum!

I served the Potato and Sausage Stew with sauerkraut for me and pickled red peppers for my husband. So good! Garnishments, especially pickled ones, are my jam. Paired with a warm and spicy potato dish they are even better. We had leftover bread sticks from the weekend so those made it to the dinner table as well. A great little meal!

This dish is simple and warming that’s for sure; perfect for fall and winter. It will definitely warm you right up. I guarantee it.

There’s nothing fancy about any of it. Just a good old fashioned Potato and Sausage Stew. So get to cooking and let me know how you like it. If you are looking for other comfort meals check out my Hungarian Stew with Noodles recipe.
