A few strips of bacon are added for some smoky flavor. Serve with a side of cornbread for a delicious southern meal.

Simple Ingredients

  • Red or Yukon Gold Potatoes– cut in halves or quarters if not really small.
  • Fresh Green Beans– canned can be used instead.
  • Chicken Broth– adds lots of flavor. Use low-sodium if you need to watch salt intake.
  • Seasoned Salt– Adds so much more flavor than regular salt. I use Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.
  • Pepper
  • Smoked Sausage
  • Butter– added at the end for a buttery finish.

What Type Of Sausage To Use

My favorite sausage to use is kielbasa but you can use any type of smoked sausage.

The potatoes take the longest to cook. They should take 4 to 5 hours on HIGH or 7 to 8 hours on LOW to get soft.
