Fall Fry {One Skillet Dinner for 10}

by Connie on November 30, 2010

A few years ago, my family visited Silver Dollar City and noticed a delicious meal being served up from street vendor carts for about $10 per plate.

I came home from that trip and decided I could make that same meal for my entire family of 10 for under $10!

We dubbed it “Fall Fry” and it is an often requested dish that is super simple to make because it only requires one skillet.

(The above picture has bell peppers, but we have decided we prefer it without them.)

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 package smoked sausage
  • 1 onion
  • 4-6 potatoes (more or less depending on how far you want this meal to stretch)
  • 2 cans whole kernel corn

Slice sausage into rounds and chop onion. Saute together in large skillet until onions are tender. Cube potatoes and add to skillet along with the cans of corn (including liquid), and simmer 10-15 minutes until potatoes become soft.

Serve with cornbread for a hearty meal the whole family will enjoy!

This meal looks delicious! I will be putting it on my lists to try later in the month!

I make the same meal but I use green beans instead of corn. Never had thought about the corn.

I make this as well but I use green beans and corn as well as a nice dose of minced garlic and some pepper. I put it in the crockpot for several hours and by dinner time it is yum-o! Serve it with fresh-from-the-oven cornbread and you have some happy little campers who don’t mind eating their vegetables. =) We call this smoked sausage stew. Simple.

do you saute the onions and sausage before you put them in the crockpot?

I’ve had this at Silver Dollar City and I make it at home, and either way it’s awesome! I often also add sweet potatoes into the mix. Delicious!!
