Directions

1. To make the smoked sausage and sweet potatoes recipe: In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add the diced sweet potatoes to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Saute until golden and cooked through, about 10 minutes, stirring regularly. Transfer sweet potatoes to a plate and set aside.

2. In the same skillet with the remaining tablespoon oil, brown the sliced smoked sausage on all sides for around 5-7 minutes over medium heat and set aside.

3. Add bell pepper and stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

4. Still in the same pan, add garlic, onion, and season with red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir-fry until onions are translucent then deglaze with 1/4 cup stock, then stir in the hot sauce.

5. Add the sauteed sweet potatoes, bell peppers, scallion, and sausage back to the skillet and mix everything together. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more,  and stir well to coat the smoked sausage and veggies with the sauce.

6. Adjust seasoning if needed, garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve the smoked sausage and sweet potatoes. Enjoy!
