Smoked Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

This is hands-down one of my favorite meals, any time of the year.  I make a HUGE pot, so you may want to adjust the portions to suit your own needs.  One reason I make so much of it is because it's awesome leftover, and I'm NOT much of a  "leftovers" kinda gal.

Smoked Sausage, Red Potatoes and Green Beans

3 lbs. fresh green beans, trimmed and ends cut
2 lbs. (or more, I swear, sometimes I use more like 3 lbs!) red potatoes, quartered
1 large onion, sliced
1 lb. smoked sausage (again, add more if you wish) cut into 1 inch chunks
*1 tsp. salt
*1 tsp. ground black pepper
*1 tsp. garlic powder
*1 tsp. onion powder
Water to cover all

**Honestly, I fudge on ALL the spices.  I add quite a bit more salt and pepper; and I just throw in the garlic and onion powder, without measuring.  I know that's not much help, but it's how I roll.

In a large pot, combine all ingredients and simmer for abt. 45 minutes or till potatoes and green beans are tender.
Serves 8


  1. mmmmmm....we're having this this weekend, except changing the green beans out for cabbage. Jeff makes corn bread to go with it! YUM!

  2. Your dad likes the way I do the spices to mine. I'm not a cabbage fan. At all. I make good cornbread too, but oddly enough I could take it or leave it! Give me homemade bread or a roll and I'm good. Enjoy your weekend!
