One skillet breakfast potatoes and chicken sausage is an easy breakfast to make for yourself or for a big group.

One Skillet Breakfast Potatoes + Chicken Sausage

Growing up, my siblings and I would often request for breakfast what my mom creatively dubbed a “crazy omelette.” This omelette consisted of bacon, hashbrowns fried in bacon grease, and scrambled eggs. This nostalgic dish is one that we enjoy when we are back home, and is easy to make for large groups of hungry people (aka my family in a nutshell).

However, I have come to enjoy a bit of a more “grown-up” version of the crazy omelette (though this meal will always have a special place in my heart), that is also a bit more healthy. This dish, consisting of red potatoes and chicken sausage, can be enjoyed as a side dish for a large brunch with friends or family, a breakfast for yourself when paired with eggs and toppings of your choice (for me, avocado is a must), or even made ahead of time for workday lunches.

After many attempts at making breakfast potatoes like they do in those classic diners, I’ve found that the key is to boil the potatoes before sautéeing them. This way, they get to be almost soft enough for you to eat, and can simply be finished off in the pan before being hastily devoured.

One Skillet Breakfast Potatoes + Chicken Sausage
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 red potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 links of chicken sausage, sliced
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water for about 5 minutes. While the potatoes are boiling, sautee the chicken sausage in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) until browned (you may want to use some olive oil as chicken sausage has less fat). Remove the sausage from the skillet and drain the potatoes.
  2. Add 1 tbsp. olive oil to the same skillet that was used to cook the sausage. Add onions, peppers, and garlic and sautee for about 3 minutes, until fragrant. Add an additional tbsp. of olive oil, and add the potatoes to the skillet. Allow to sit in the skillet for 2-3 minutes without stirring, then stir, and repeat again. If you are using an oven-safe skillet, you may also finish in oven on broil for 2-3 minutes for additional browning.
  3. Once the potatoes are to your desired brownness, add the sausage back in. Enjoy with fried eggs, avocado, salsa, or whatever your heart desires! <3
