One thing I love is kielbasa, sausage or a brat. When I saw there was chicken sausage I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t think it would be nearly as good as the “real” thing.
Once I finally tried it I was pleasantly surprised! It has a ton of flavor and it is way better for you.
This is the kind I bought:
As you can see on the label it has 65% less fat than regular smoked sausage. I love that it also has cheddar cheese, it gives it so much flavor!
This ended up being the perfect weeknight meal. With the kids back in school I wanted something quick, easy and yummy. It accomplished all three!
I used Ore-Ida diced hash browns. This helped me save time because I didn’t have to peel and dice potatoes.
The most time consuming part of this recipe is cutting up the vegetables, but it doesn’t take long. It’s just the onion, red pepper and spinach.
Since potatoes are free if you follow purple this is only 4 points per serving for purple. For blue and green it’s 5 points per serving.
It’s a filling meal for not a lot of points!
Yield: 4 servings (4 points per serving for purple, 5 points per serving for blue and green)
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 2 cups Ore-Ida diced hash browns
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
- 4 links chicken cheddar sausage, diced
- 2 cups spinach, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 2 tablespoons chicken broth
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add onion and minced garlic. Stir for one minute, then add the frozen potatoes, salt and pepper. Cover with a lid and cook on medium-low for 7 minutes, stirring once half way through.
Add bell pepper, chicken sausage, spinach, chicken broth and paprika. Cook until sausage is heated through and spinach is thoroughly cooked (about 5 minutes).
