  • 2 lbs sausage
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1/2 onion
  • Seasoning


  1. Slice the sausage into 1/2-1 inch pieces and chop your onion. Peel potatoes and cut them into uniform cubes, about 1-2 inches square.
  2. Heat 3 tbsp oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven, and add the sausage and onion. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until onions are translucent and sausage begins to brown. Add a tablespoon or two of water if sausage starts to stick.
  3. Add potatoes to the pot along with the sausage and onions. Fill the pot with about 2 inches of water and add seasoning.
  4. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until potatoes absorb the water, about 60-90 minutes. If the water cooks out before the potatoes are very soft, add more. You don't want the potatoes to get crusty.
  5. Your dish is done when the water is all absorbed by the potatoes, and the potatoes are extremely soft.
