Italian Sausage, Long Hots and Potatoes
- 1 lb. Italian sweet sausage (regular or turkey)
- 1 lb. pound of Italian Long Hot Peppers or as many as you want, ends cut off and seeds and white rib cleaned out
- 1 lb. small potatoes, quartered
- Minced garlic
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Freshly ground pepper
- Chopped fresh parsley
- Crusty Italian bread
Tip: Par cook each part then assemble it!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In an oven proof pan (preferably cast iron), fry sausage in a little olive oil to brown it, 3-4 minutes on each side, and then place it on a plate and cut into pieces. In the same pan, fry the long hot peppers. Remove them and put that on the plate with the partially cooked but nicely browned sausage.
Get the pan hot again and then add a tablespoon of olive oil and fry potatoes till they are crispy brown, about 10 minutes. Now turn the heat up on the pan and add the sausage and the peppers, potatoes and now the minced garlic (to taste), salt and pepper (to taste) and stir around.
With an oven mitt, move the pan to the highest point in the oven. It will take approx. 15 minutes to fully cook and if you love it well done you can let it go a little longer. When you remove the pan top with the parsley. Serve with Italian bread.
