Potato Kielbasa Skillet

This is a fast, comfort food recipe that my whole family likes. I'm including the price breakouts for what I paid to make this last night based on sales, coupons, garden, etc., to show how affordable it can be, too.

1 Kielbasa sausage rope- 16oz. ($1.50)
6 medium potatoes, skins on, sliced (.75)
1 medium onion, chopped- (.40)
1 green bell pepper, chopped- (.00-from garden)
3T olive oil, divided (.10)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2t smoked paprika
1/2t garlic powder
8oz shredded swiss cheese ($1.00)

In large skillet, heat 1T olive oil over medium-high heat. Slice sausage into bite size pieces. Place in skillet and cooked until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from skillet. Add remaining oil, onions, potatoes, pepper, and spices. Cook, flipping potatoes occasionally, until well browned, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, sprinkle cheese over top and cover until melted. Serve with a veggie or salad.

This dish cost me $3.75 to prepare, plus some fresh steamed asparagus for $1.
