Easy Sausage and Peppers (3 Ways)


An easy one pot dish of sausage, peppers, and onions that can be served 3 different ways for 3 separate meals.

Easy Sausage and Peppers (3 Ways):  An easy one pot dish of sausage, peppers, and onions that can be served 3 different ways for 3 separate meals.

As always whenever my husband or I see meat on sale we buy it and put it in our freezer (if we don't cook it that day).  We have acquired lots of sausages, steaks, and roasts this way for much cheaper than full price.  These sausages were one of our on sale purchases and I love this recipe because it is so versatile.

Easy Sausage and Peppers
I don't always like to eat the same thing every night but I like to cook big meals that can last most of the week.  This recipe is great because it's simple and you can dress it differently for simple and new meals.  This is great for a busy week.  All you have to do is cook once then just reheat.

Sausage and Pepper Rice Bowl
I started with just sausage and peppers with sides, then sausage and peppers over rice, and lastly sausage and pepper sandwiches.  I did all the work on the first night, then, the next night I just threw some rice in the rice cooker and reheated the sausage and peppers.  For the third meal I just loaded some hoagie rolls with sausage and peppers, topped with provolone, and broiled until the cheese melted. Easy peasy and very delicious.

Sausage and Peppers Sandwiches

Easy Sausage and Peppers (3 ways)


1 pack (6) sausages (we had beef, jalapeno, and Monterrey jack cheese sausages...use what ever you have or like), sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili oil
4 bell peppers, assorted colors, sliced
1 large red onion, sliced
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
few shakes of oregano
few shakes of crushed red peppers
salt and pepper to taste

Easy Sausage and Peppers

Heat a large stock pot over medium heat.  Saute the sausages until slightly browned (these were fully cooked sausages I just like to get some color on them).

Then add the oils and peppers and onions (with a bit of salt and pepper).  Continue sauteing until the vegetables soften then add the garlic, oregano, and pepper flakes.  Saute a little longer until garlic is fragrant then remove from heat.  Taste for seasoning and add more as needed.

Makes 6-8 servings.  Serve with sides of your choice, over pasta or rice, and/or on sandwiches with provolone cheese.

  1. Yum. This looks absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I love how versatile you've made these sausages. Thanks so much! Pinning and sharing. :)

  2. I love using sausage in spaghetti. It cooks faster than hamburger and the kiddo is less likely to pick it all out. Thanks for sharing on #yuckstopshere link up.

  3. Thanks Deborah. I don't always like to eat the same thing every night but don't always want to cook something new so I try to get creative.

  4. Sausage it great in many things Nicole. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. We will just love your Sausage and Peppers dish. Thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope you stay warm and cozy on this cold day.
    Come Back Soon!
