This is a quick and easy supper that you can have on the table very quickly. I served it with sauteed fresh tomato wedges -- quickly cooked the tomatoes in a small amount of butter with salt, pepper, and a little dill weed. They came out really good. So here's the recipe, which has been in my handwritten cookbook for years. I can't even remember where I found it.
SMOKED SAUSAGE POTATO SALAD
4 medium potatoes, cubed (I used yellow potatoes and did not bother to peel them; red potatoes [as in the photo] work well also -- but really, any potatoes will do)
8 ounces or more smoked sausage, halved lengthwise and then sliced
1 small onion, chopped
Several stalks celery, sliced
1 can cut green beans, drained
Mayonnaise to taste
Honey mustard to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water, covered, until tender, about 15 minutes or so. Meanwhile, saute the sausage, onion, and celery in a large skillet until the onion is tender and sausage is lightly browned, stirring often.
When potatoes are done, drain them and add to the skillet with the green beans. Cook, stirring, until heated through. Stir in mayonnaise to taste (I use about 1/3 cup) and 1 to 2 tablespoons honey mustard. (This time, I was out of honey mustard so I used some honey mustard salad dressing. It would also work to use regular brown mustard and some honey.) Salt and pepper to taste.
I buy sausages of all types when they are on sale and store in the freezer until needed. That means (assuming I have canned green beans -- another staple -- in the pantry) I can make a dish like this very quickly at almost the last minute.
Hope you enjoy this recipe if you try it!
