  • 1 pound of smoked Polish sausage (that’s about 0.45 kg for our international friends), sliced into 1-inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil, for that healthy glisten
  • 1 onion, lovingly diced
  • 2 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes (approx. 0.9 kg), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (for flavor magic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper (a little kick)

Tools You’ll Need:

  • Large Skillet
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Measuring spoons
  • Chef’s Knife
  • Cutting Board


  1. Begin with the Sausage: Fire up your skillet over a medium flame and pour in that tablespoon of olive oil. Once the oil starts shimmering, add the sliced Polish sausage. Why Polish sausage, you ask? Well, it packs a smoky punch that elevates the entire dish. Cook the sausage until all sides turn a deep, inviting brown. This caramelization is key for rich flavor.
  2. Sausage Intermission: Take the beautifully browned sausage out of the skillet, and give it a break on a separate plate. They’ve done their part for now.
  3. Onion’s Time to Shine: In the same skillet, toss in the diced onion. Cook these until they become translucent and soft. These onions don’t just offer texture; they act like a flavor sponge, absorbing the smoky essence left behind by the sausage.
  4. The Potato Debut: Introduce your Yukon Gold potato cubes into the skillet. Oh, and sprinkle in that salt and black pepper. Yukon Golds are your best bet because they have a buttery texture and a slight sweetness that pairs amazingly with the smoky sausage. Stir occasionally and let them cook until they turn a mouthwatering golden brown. This usually takes around 20 minutes. Patience, my friends!
  5. Sausage Encore: Bring back the sausage into the skillet to reunite with its flavorful friends. Cook just long enough for the sausage to get back to its warm, happy state.
  6. The Final Bow: Serve it hot right off the skillet. Take a moment to savor the symphony of flavors—you’ve earned it!

Cooking tips:

  • Quality Sausage: Invest in high-grade smoked Polish sausage for the most flavorful experience.
  • Don’t Overcrowd: Give your potatoes space in the skillet for even browning and crispy edges.
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes: Opt for Yukon Golds for their buttery texture and delightful sweetness that complements the smoky sausage.
  • Sensory Onion: Cook the onions until soft and translucent—they’ll absorb the flavors already in the skillet.
  • Stir Occasionally: Resist the urge to constantly stir. Occasional stirring ensures golden, crispy potatoes.
  • Additional Veggies: Feel like adding more colors and nutrients? Toss in diced carrots or celery with the onions.
  • Serving Touch: Elevate the dish with a dollop of sour cream or a spoonful of applesauce for added richness.
