Loaded Potato and Cajun Sausage Skillet
This tasty skillet recipe is a spin off from my original version that used cajun chicken. This time I around I decided to make it with smoked turkey sausage since I had some in the house and wanted to make something different with it. This was even better than my original chicken skillet. A hit with the whole family!
Loaded Potato and Cajun Chicken Skillet
Cal 294, Carbs 17.1, Fat 13.8, Fiber 2, Protein 21.8
1 14 oz. package turkey sausage, cut into chunks
6 cups shredded hash brown potatoes
8 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled (I used center cut)
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 can rotel, drained
1.5 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar jack cheese
In a large skillet heat olive oil and add in the potatoes. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Cook about 8 minutes per side or until crisp. Add in the sausage, onions, and rotel. Cook until onions turn translucent. Top with cooked bacon and shredded cheese. Cover the skillet with a lid and remove when cheese is melted.
Serve with sour cream, green onions, and hot sauce if desired. Enjoy!
