Andy's Iron Skillet Worthy

The Smoked Sausage Skillet has become a fast favorite in our house.  In our recent efforts for better health - we've switched to Lean Turkey Smoked Sausage.  Andy thought he liked the regular better, but alas - the winds of change!  This skillet recipe is an easy one.  Who wouldn't like fried potatoes, onions, peppers and smoked sausage?  Bronwyn picks up an onion - "what's this?"  We answer "Deliciousness!"  Once again - we do not fool her, she can pick an onion out of just about anything, reminds me of my grandma...
This recipe is easy for a quick night, just takes a little time to chop a few things.  Since this recipe uses the iron skillet it means I'm off limits from making it.  Works out pretty well right?  You see, I don't touch that skillet.  It's Andy's.  I suggested a recipe once for it, it took some of the finish off... the finish he's been working so hard to create... well... that didn't go over so well.  So, now if I there is a recipe that says skillet - I made him decide of it's iron skillet worthy or if we need the non-stick skillet.  Thankfully this one made the cut.
Give this one a try - it's a great all in one dish and not too rough on the belt loops.  Don’t have an iron skillet?  The non-stick kind will work just as well.

Kielbasa, Pepper, Onion and Potato Hash  

1 (14 ounce) package turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 yellow, red or orange bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
3 small or 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
olive oil
salt and pepper

1.In a heavy bottomed skillet (I like to use my cast iron), heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the potatoes to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Fry until golden brown and cooked through, around 8-10 minutes, stirring a few times to ensure even browning.  
2.In a separate skillet, brown the sliced kielbasa for around 5 minutes in 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium high heat.  Remove the kielbasa from the pan and set aside.  Add the peppers and onions to the skillet and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 minutes, or until softened, stirring occasionally.
3.Add the cooked potatoes and kielbasa to the skillet with the onions and peppers and mix everything together.  Serve nice and hot!
