Sausage, potatoes, and green beans in bowl

Need a comforting dinner idea that’s just as easy as it is delicious?

Simple, affordable dinner ideas that’ll feed a hungry crew on busy evenings are my favorite! Get a warm and comforting meal on the table in a snap with this yummy sausage and potato dish. It has a buttery broth and the sausage seasons the potatoes and green beans nicely.

Hip Tips: 

    • Season this meal as desired. The sausage adds lots of nice flavors, but you can turn it up a notch using garlic and cajun seasoning like I did (or any other savory herb seasonings your family enjoys). It’s easy to adjust to taste.
    • I’ve made sausage, green beans, and potatoes using the Instant Pot as well and it works great, too! Simply place all ingredients including 3/4 cup of chicken broth in the pot. Set the cooking time on HIGH or MANUAL for 3 minutes, followed by a quick release. Easy Peasy!
    • Use the type of potato your family enjoys. I have used reds, russet, Yukon, and baby potatoes. They are all YUM!
    • You can use canned green beans or fresh ones. If using canned, you would just need to throw them in at the end to warm up.

We love this quick meal idea!

This is one of my husband’s childhood favorite dinners and I know it’s popular in the midwest where he is from. I love that it’s versatile, affordable, so warm and comforting, and is incredibly simple to prepare.

The best part is you’ll only have one pot to wash after dinner—yippee!

    Growing up in Pennsylvania there was a similar meal we had often- ham, beans, and potatoes. There were a lot of German families in the area I lived and many made this. I will have to try it with sausage! Thanks!

    • Robyn

      I thought the same thing, cbakerd3! Although I live in the South now, I was born in the Lehigh Valley and my family is Pennsylvania Dutch. “Ham and string beans” (as we call it) is something we always make with the leftover ham bone from a holiday meal. 🙂

      • cbakerd3

        I moved South as well! Glad I’m not the only one who makes this.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum! Yes, I think you’ll like this – enjoy!

    • Pensxfan

      Haha yep. PA here and we definitely make ham green beans and potatoes

  2. Lala

    This is so good and so easy to throw together except I use my insta pot 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I like that method also. Thanks Lala!

  3. Dianne Matthews

    you should try tossing the sliced sausages with green pepper and onion into the air fryer and in just a few minutes have a great, easy meal.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! I’d enjoy that too. I’ve tried that as a sheet pan meal before, and it’s so easy too. 👍

  4. Maggie

    Yum ! This looks like my Aunt Karens famous reunion beans but she used bacon !! What an awesome idea to make it a one pot meal !
    Thank You !!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh interesting – Bacon sounds good too. Thanks Maggie!

  5. jen

    I make this adding carrots on a sheet pan in the oven. The carrots & potatoes roast nicely together with a drizzle of olive oil.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! I love the idea of carrots. Thanks Jen!

  6. bnkb1100

    Thanks for the recipe! I have to commend you for giving a shout out to Louisiana Cajun seasoning, it’s the real deal. Seeing it actually made me smile. I live south of New Orleans and I can say I have tried every cajun seasoning there is and this one is our favorite. Not too spicy and not too salty-it’s perfect. It is made by cajuns and used by cajuns. I will try this quick one pot meal this week!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! That’s the one I tend to grab at the store and we enjoy too! 🙂

  7. Elisebgreen

    Lol! This has been a staple in our home forever. Except to make it a quick weekday meal we just cut up potatoes, throw two cans of green beans on it (juice and all), and dice up some kielbasa on top. Simple, quick, and kids love it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great idea! yes, my kids love this too 🙂

    • Lindsay

      We’ve been making it for ages this way too! Easy to do cabbage instead of potatoes for low carb. My kids always gobble it up. 🙂

  8. JulietteY

    Thanks for the great idea! This would be an easy dish to sub veggie broth and vegan sausage for vegetarians. Instant Pot version sounds perfect!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes, that’s a wonderful idea!

  9. Lisa

    I make a similar version in my crockpot only using chicken broth, smoked sausage, & potatoes. My husband loves it.

  10. mrsfick

    We grew up with this meal- but used canned potatoes. Now I have to try this with fresh potatoes!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I think you’ll enjoy them also!

  11. tipaye

    Reminds me of kielbasa (or smoked sausage), cabbage and potatoes! Butter, salt and pepper is all that’s needed. This recipe looks good, too—thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes yum, I want to try with cabbage now too 😀

  12. Amber

    My family loves this! Even my picky four year old. We made it yesterday in the crock pot! Simple and cheap 😉

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes! So great 😀 thanks for sharing Amber!

  13. Carrie

    I make this every time I take a meal to someone. It is a main dish and sides all in one.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s a great idea to make for someone – super comforting 👍

  14. Amy

    If you’re weirded out by sausage casings, do you think it would work well to use bulk sausage?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya you can use another type of sausage. If it’s the uncooked kind, I’d cook it first though.

  15. Nana Donna 2 6

    Thanks for sharing your version of this. I now know how to do this on top of the stove. I make something very similar but toss it all in my slow cooker for about 6-8 hours.

  16. browniesmomma

    I have been making this for years & love it. Now I make it in the IP. Also a great way to use up leftover ham instead of sausage. I like to throw in some real bacon bits too for extra flavor. Serve it with a side of cornbread. Yum! 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Great idea on the bacon bits ❤️
