Green Beans Sausage and Potatoes

Green Beans Sausage and Potatoes is purely delicious, flavorful,  old-style comfort food at its finest, made with fresh organic green beans, Italian sausage meatballs, organic small red potatoes, onions, and simmered in a tomato broth.

When I was a child, my father made this wonderful dish called Green Beans, Sausage, and Potatoes. The best part of it was the tiny little sausage meatballs that cooked in the wonderful tomato broth. They were so outstanding it was simply ridiculous!

This is really a fairly simple recipe to make, the most involved part is the rolling of the tiny meatballs. If you roll the meatballs fast enough, you can pretty much have them done in about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your speed, of course.

I know sometimes that may not be an option, but it’s definitely worth it in the long run. I like to use locally grown ingredients to support the farmers in our area. However, you can also use organic frozen green beans in the offseason if need be.

I definitely would not recommend using canned green beans in place of fresh or frozen green beans. It’s just not going to taste remotely even close to the fresh or frozen green beans. You want to be able to simmer the green beans until they are tender, and the canned version is just already too soggy to simmer for more than a few minutes.

I use the small organic red potatoes in 2-pound bags at the market and cut them in halves. I find that they cook perfectly at the same time as the green beans. You can use either or if you desire. The recipe tastes pretty much the same.

I also do not peel the potatoes, nor did my father. I wash and scrub them before adding them to the pot. Most of the nutrients are in the skins of potatoes, and the skins are fragile, so it doesn’t hinder the taste one bit. I actually think it adds to the flavor of the Green Beans Sausage and Potatoes recipe.

How can you go wrong with this amazing comfort food? Unless you dislike the ingredients, you can’t go wrong. It’s a win-win situation for dinner. It even tastes better the next day, which is a huge plus in my book.

I would not recommend freezing this recipe unless you omit the potatoes. Apparently, potatoes hate being frozen because they come out awful afterward. You can, however, omit the red potatoes, freeze, and add cooked potatoes to the green beans while reheating, but it’s not as delicious as adding them from the start.
