Sausage, Potatoes, Onions, and Greens

sausage potatoes

When I began getting a local CSA farm share two years ago, my life in the kitchen changed dramatically.  I went from being someone who got overwhelmed with meal planning and kept making the same meals over and over to someone who was excited to find ways to prepare meals with all these crazy new vegetables.  I had never eaten kale or shallots before, and I was happy to make their acquaintance.  I love my farm share for several reasons, including the great taste of freshly picked vegetables, the health benefits of eating organic local produce, the environmental value of buying local, and the affordability of a farm share.  But the main reason I love it is that I don’t have to decide what produce to buy each week.  My farmer does it for me.  If you haven’t gotten around to getting a farm share yet, please check out Local Harvest to see if there is a farm near you.  You won’t regret it.

This week was the last pick-up of my winter share, which comes once or twice a month from late fall through early spring.  All the food in this meal came from my farm share except the organic chicken sausage.

Sausage, Potatoes, Onions, and Greens
  • 1 lb. mild Italian chicken sausage, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 2 cups fingerling potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small onions, chopped
  • 1½ cups loosely packed greens (e.g. arugula, spinach, kale)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Put the potatoes in a roasting pan and drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over them. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast the potatoes until tender, stirring every 10 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the onions in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil until translucent. Add the sausage and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently. The sausage is done when it’s no longer pink inside.
  3. Add the cooked potatoes to the skillet and stir to combine. A few minutes before serving, add the greens to the skillet and cover. Heat it for a minute or two until the greens just begin to wilt. Serve immediately.

    Trying new flavors is so much fun. This blog has forced me to try new things and for the most part, I like everything. Great combination for a hearty meal.

    Mr. Foodie would fall all over himself trying to get to a plate of this. He loves sausage and potatoes. I think I fixed the link…if not, let me know and thanks for the heads up!

    I love the look of this – particularly as it includes sausages and seasonal veggies. I too let the farmer decide on my weekly ingredients by getting a weekly veggie box – I love to eat seasonally and it’s so interesting trying out new veggies I probably wouldn’t think of choosing myself…

    I totally agree that the meal plans sort of make themselves based on what the farmer has provided. I’m excited to see how you prepare the surprises in your CSA box!
