Smoked Sausage with Peppers and Onion

by Erin

This month I had the pleasure of browsing through the recipes by the very person who gave us The Secret Recipe Club – April of Angels Homestead! Some recipes of hers that I enjoyed included a festive Shamrock Pizza for St. Patrick’s Day, Creamy Salsa Verde, and even a recipe for 2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes using just banana and egg whites. She also just celebrated her 4th blogiversary last week, so head on over and check out her blog (there’s even a giveaway).

I chose to make her recipe for smoked sausage with bell peppers and onion. This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and couldn’t be easier, making it a perfect weeknight meal. Caramelize the peppers and onion, then add the sausage until heated through. There is no need for a sauce and just some garlic for seasoning. The sweet bell peppers, onion and smoked sausage bring plenty of flavor and moisture all on their own.

Yum!!! I would eat this on a huge hoagie roll— looks delish! PS– I love that it’s snowing on your blog–so cute!

On a hoagie would definitely be a fun alternative to rice. And thanks! I turn on the snow every winter :-) (it’s a plugin on wordpress)

Sausage, peppers, and onions are a staple meal for us all year round, but especially grilled in the summer! Awesome pick this month :)

Yum! Pinning now and definitely going to try this. Great pick!

Now that is a dish my husband would LOVE! Sausages sometimes “talk to me” for hours, so I tend to eat just a small amount. I love them, but they don’t seem to love me back, you know… ;-)

Hope you are having a great Monday browsing through the collection of recipes!

Sausages, peppers + onions was one of my all-time favorite meals growing up, and yours looks SO awesome. I need to make it more often as a weeknight meal. Thanks for reminding me. =)

Oh yeah, sausage and peppers — you cannot go wrong! This looks great, and it would also be good with some pineapple chunks thrown in. Nicely done for SRC!

Ooo pineapple would’ve been a great addition.

I love it, you did a fantastic job on this Erin! I like how you added yellow peppers to the mix too, it adds a great extra pop of color. Thanks for all the kind words! :)
