Smoked Sausage, Green Beans, and Potatoes

One of my all-time favorite meals is Smoked Sausage, Green Beans, and Potatoes. This is comfort food to me. I’ve grown up eating this meal on several occasions. Add some crumbled corn bread on top, and it’s even better!

This is a really simple dish and there’s nothing fancy about it at all. Sometimes I think those are the best meals. I’m not really sure how this meal came about. I’ve seen many different versions of it at family pitch-ins and have seen friends post pictures of their versions on social media. One thing I do know, is that my uncle made it one time and sautéed onions with the sausage, creating an extra layer of flavor that is fabulous! I won’t make it any other way now.

This is my version! I hope you like it!



2-14 oz cans green beans (don’t drain the liquid, you’ll use that too)
1-14oz can diced potatoes (don’t drain the liquid, you’ll use that too)
7 oz skinless smoked sausage, chopped into bite-sized pieces
¼ cup chopped onion
Cornbread for serving
Makes about 5 servings

On medium-high heat, caramelize the smoked sausage. You should start to see some browning on the sausage. Add in the onion and sauté for about 1-2 minutes (until they are translucent).


In a saucepot, combine the green beans (and the liquid), potatoes (and the liquid), sausage, and onions. Heat on medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for about 10- 15 minutes.


Spoon into serving bowls and serve with cornbread. I like to crumble the cornbread on top of my Smoked Sausage, Green Beans, and Potatoes.
