  • 1 lb sweet potatoes peeled and cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 lb potatoes peeled and cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 lb spicy sausage casings removed and crumbled
  • 1 orange pepper halved and sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper halved and sliced
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup butter divided
  • Salt and pepper
  • 10 fresh sage leaves left whole and on stem if possible + more for garnish


  • Add potatoes to a large pot of salted water. Bring to a boil and cook 3-5 minutes, or until tender-crisp (DO NOT OVERCOOK.) Drain, rinse in cold water twice, and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add in onions and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in peppers and garlic and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until sausage is browned, Remove to a bowl, leaving fats in pan.
  • Add 2 tbsp. of butter to the pan and when hot, stir in potatoes and sage leaves. Cook over medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, until potatoes are nice and golden. Add more butter if necessary.
  • Pour meat mixture back into pan and cook until reheated. Season generously with salt and pepper and serve with fresh sage if desired (remove cooked sage leaves before serving.)


Potatoes can be pre-boiled the night before to save time.
You may need to add more butter as the potatoes cook depending on how much fats your sausage released.
Finally, any type of sausage will do but you do not want to go too sweet!
