Sausage Aparagus Skillet

Sausage Asparagus Skillet
from Simply In Season  (the best cookbook of seasonal recipes!)

This is a new (to me) recipe that I just found that we think is a winner. I love that it takes only one pan for an entire meal! This is one of those meals that I love my extra deep cast iron Griswold skillet that came from Ed's grandmother. I use this pan every day!

1 lb sausage
1 onion, chopped
Fry together until lightly browned.

4-5 potatoes, chopped
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper, to taste
Add, to sausage, cover and simmer 10 minutes.

1 lb asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
Add and simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft. If needed, add extra water.

1/2 cup cheese, shredded
Sprinkle on top.


  1. There's nothing like cooking with cast iron is there? The recipe looks yummy!

  2. That sounds VERY good! I need to look up your asparagas over toast recipe. I've been thinking about it and not getting it made! *L*

  3. mmm that dish looks lovely and im getting skillet envy :)

  4. yum! this recipe does sound good; looking forward to trying. on the skillet note, i've never had any cast iron cookware; personally, my pampered chef non-stick skillet is my all-time favorite. =) can you explain what you like about cast iron?

  5. Joanna-
    Cast iron is basically indestructible. I have no idea how long Ed's grandmother had it, but I should be able to use it for my lifetime and hand it to my granddaughter. No special utensils are needed. If it is well-seasoned, it is basically non-stick. I could go on, but you get the idea! I LOVE cast iron!

  6. We are trying the recipe today.

  7. good to know; thanks for the info, gina!

  8. We tried this last night and it was absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Hi, Gina! My family and I are looking forward to trying this recipe as it looks delicious and easy. How many does this recipe serve? Thanks! : )

  10. In your Sausage Asparagus Skillet recipe, do you usually use Russets? Or Yukon Gold potatoes?


I love to hear from you.
